He was my first crush. I always wanted to be Liz Taylor in "Cat on a hot tin roof", just for that scene where she hugs him and he nearly hugs back...

Oh man. Not fair.

Oh, he was just so amazing. :-/ It's hard to believe he's gone. And oh, do you mean the scene in this icon? I had to reupload it after you mentioned it.

Oh god, icon!love! Yes, I believe it's the scene right before that, where Maggie hugs Brick facing him and his hand go p for a moment, as if he's actually going to hug her back, but then he drops them again...so heartwrenching. I need to rewatch that movie.
Actually, I have a feeling I'm gonna be rewatching a lot of his films.

God, what a cast, looking back at that film. There's no one of their equal today.

Oh, no. That's terrible news. We're starting to lose all the greats. =(

Such a huge loss. I'm going to sob my way through the Oscar "In Memoriam" montage this year. :-(

Butch & Sundance was the 2nd movie I ever saw in a movie theater. my dad took me so I could get in. I've crushed on Newman ever since. :'(

I've always liked Robert Redford but, man, h could never hold a candle to Paul Newman. It's such a shame he's gone. :-(

Man, It was hard to pick a favorite in that movie, so I picked both! But Newman always had my heart. :)

They made a fantastic team. :) And I've enjoyed a lot of solo Redford outings, like Three Days of the Condor.

There will never be another like him. And to think most of the "youngsters" in fandom don't even know who he was, or how powerful an actor can actually be. Poor Joanne...

No, there really never will be anyone like him, no matter how hard they try to make Matthew McConaughey or whoever out to be the "new Newman." I got shivers the first time I watched The Hustler. That's really the film he should have won for. I think when you're that gorgeous, it's hard to be taken seriously as an actor, for some stupid reason. :-/
