Paul Newman reportedly has weeks to live

Paul Newman has reportedly told friends and family he wants to die at home after being told he only has “a few weeks to live”.

The Hollywood superstar – who is thought to be suffering from terminal lung cancer – has now finished his chemotherapy sessions and has told wife Joanne Woodward and the couple’s three daughters that he wants to spend his final days at his home rather than the New York cancer hospital where he was being treated.

A close family friend told the MailOnline website: “Paul didn't want to die in the hospital. Joanne and their daughters are beside themselves with grief.”


Ohh, man. Yeah, he is 83, but I'm not liking this news. He's been one of my favorite actors from The Hustler to Cars. I've particularly enjoyed his racing endeavors as well. He's been married to Joanne Woodward since 1958 - rare enough even outside Hollywood. They just don't make 'em like him anymore.

That's just plain sad. His poor family.
