Paul Newman's longtime neighbor and business partner confirmed on Wednesday that the screen legend is battling cancer.

Writer A.E. Hotchner, who partnered with Newman to start Newman's Own salad dressing company, said the actor told him about the disease about 18 months ago.

Hotchner doesn't say what kind of cancer the legendary actor has but said Newman is in active treatment.

Get well, Mr. Newman!

May your days be pain-free and surrounded by loved ones.

    Hey Perez, just leave the man alone. He's above you, and this.

    He is the epitome of class, style, and everything old Hollywood was made of. Not to mention that he found the love of his life and is still with her. So sad, but at the same time, so inspiring.

    Normally I bash everyone and everything on here. I have to say that there is NOBODY cooler than this guy. He's been with his wife forever, he's raised TONS of money for charity, he does what he loves and that's car racing… Everything about this dude is amazing. Plus he was Cool Hand Luke. Get well brotherman

    next time you write about Paul, please use a photo from when he was in his prime!!! the photo choices you have been using, do not do him justice. Some people may not know who Paul Newman is and what a tremendous talent he is - it would be best to remember him as the smoking hot man he was in the 1960s instead of these photos of an aging Paul.

    My thoughts go out to him and his family!

    my best wishes to Paul Newman,one of the best and most legendary ACTORS and REAL PHILANTHROPISTS(AND NOT WANNABE SAINTS & CELEBRITIES like Brad Pitt and his HO) of all times.

    Hey Perez,

    I think you should start smoking.

    The guy will die of old age before he dies of cancer…hes like a fucking dinosaur. fasl;jdf;asljdf why do people care so much about people they will never know…it is such a waste of being

  24. hope says – reply to this

    And, may I add, I will always from today on, race my NISSAN Z in his memory and give all proceeds to charity.

    Can I just say that I really like the last line of this post.. "May your days be pain free and surrounded by loved ones". That really is a wonderful sentence. I recently wrote a letter to a young friend who was just given less than six months to live, and I had no idea what to say. When you know the person is going to die soon, "get well" doesn't cut it. I wish I had this line when I wrote that letter…..

    If he is dieing, then let the poor man have some fucking privacy… how would you like it if your mum had an illness Perez, and some stupid fucker was blogging about her every five minutes.

    Why do nice people like Paul get cancer… why can't it be a low-life like you scum-bag… Go to hell Perez, YOU SUCK!

  27. jen says – reply to this

    Can we let this man fight his cancer battle in private and with dignity? Why is this the business of the media or the world for that matter? I'm not just talking about this website, it's all websites and magazines. It's ridiculous. Let this man have his privacy….SERIOUSLY!

  28. Hyde says – reply to this

    Nice. Newman obviously wanted to keep this private thus the denials from his people, but the business partner had to open his fat trap. Best wishes, Mr. Newman.

    Re: dmd – Hoping you feel better Paul , most people may not know him in person but we still care because this guy is a great actor and has given us a lot of joy through his talent !. Some people should be less selfish and learn to care about others.

    SO WHAT? He's got fucking cancer boo hoo the FUCK hooo. You want to know what real pain is? Try taking 2 fists one in your cunt and the other in your ass at the same time and getting punch fucked! OwwWw! Hurt so good. My BF Jerome has BIG hands. Then this morning I saw blood in the toilet moxed in my shit and didn't know if i was having my period. Turns out a baby plonked out. A wee little one. I miscarried. I guess all that fisting killed it. Glad though. Saved money on an abortion. Anyway it hurt like hell. I took it out, baptised it in piss and fed it to my cats. They thought it was a mouse and they played w it for a while. I called it little Paul Newman. Cute, huh? Xoxoxoxo :) Happy wednesday. Carlie Gurl from N Long Beach

    Whenever I see Paul I always remember the passage in Patricia Neal's biography (As I Am) where she says she was talking to him about her very young daughter's recent death and he responded with "so what?!"

    How come i don't see Perez telling people that smoking/cigarettes are bad, the way he does for other addictive susbtances? Do you smoke cigarettes Perez? I really hope you do and if you don't you should start. Oh and why don't you say "Leave sick people in peace to convalesce" the way you selectively say about certain dead folk?

    Preach on you two faced, hypocritical, wanna be pretty and famous fat fuck!
