PAUL NEWMAN DIED YESTERDAY at his home in Westport CT.

Paul_newman_320_2

A couple of months ago the legendary actor was given weeks to live, he only wanted to die at home. "Paul didn't want to die in the hospital," a source said. "Joanne and his daughters are beside themselves with grief."

Newman died Friday of cancer, spokeswoman Marni Tomljanovic said. No other details were immediately available.

His career was outstanding. Newman worked with some of the greatest directors of the past half century,  Alfred Hitchcock, John Huston, Robert Altman, Martin Scorsese and the Coen brothers, among many others. His co-stars included Elizabeth Taylor, Lauren Bacall, Tom Cruise, Tom Hanks and, most famously, Robert Redford, his sidekick in "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" and "The Sting."

He will be missed.

IF EVER I SHALL LEAVE YOU.....
(FOR JOANNE & DAUGHTERS)
If ever I shall leave you it wouldn't be in spring.
For the sweet smell of the flowers makes my heart begin to sing.
If ever I shall leave you, in winter, it couldn't be.
For you would need, my warmth, in winter as the snow falls on the tree.
I guess it be in summer, but summer I can't see.
The warm, hot breeze of summer brings out the Love in me.
So, it would have to be in Fall.
As the leaves fall off the tree.
But, somehow I can't leave at all...
For (our) love will always be.
