Nobody puts their life on the line like actors do...nobody. They give more of themselves and to total strangers than anyone else does...yet people want even more from them, and more and more. Paul Newman, and any other artists, owes us NOTHING. He doesn't have to be "nice" or available at all hours to be bothered by people who can't get enough, and seem to think artists owe them because they spent MONEY.
Take away the Arts and what are you people gonna do with all that green paper...wipe your butts?
I have always walked the other way when I saw "celebreties"...feel as if I'm intruding if I even recognize them. Paul did enough for me by taking the risks he did in his life. Who ISN'T an asshole? But which assholes have given so much of their blood guts and flesh to so many people?
There isn't a celebrity I want to know or even look at. It's the work, stupid.
