Paul Newman’s widow upset over his shameful biographyMay 1st, 2009 - 3:39 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, May 1 (ANI): Late Hollywood actor Paul Newman’s wife Joanne Woodward is fuming over the release of a book called Paul Newman: A life, because it portrays him as a boozy womanizer.
Joanne is devastated that the immoral book written by Shawn Levy will depict the legendary actor in the bad light.
The book talks about Newman’s romance with a journalist on the set of Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid in Mexico and his alcoholic ways.
According to reports, the writer, Nancy Bacon, who wrote about Newman in her book Stars In My Eyes… Stars In My Bed, told Levy that she dumped the actor because he was “always drunk”.
However, Joanne is not buying any of it and is hurt that Newman, who worked so hard all his life and was known as an incredible artist, will be portrayed in a bad light after his death.
“Joanne is devastated and furious. She cannot understand why this cruel book is being written about Paul,” Contactmusic quoted a source, as telling America’s the Globe.
“Joanna and Paul had one of the longest, happiest marriages in Hollywood. She is terrified everyone is going to say it was all a sham and they lived a lie. She’s furious his (Newman’s) good name and legacy are being ripped apart,” the source added.
Newman died of cancer last September (08) at the age of 83. (ANI)
