Legend Newman plans final movie
Paul Newman
Newman won an Emmy earlier this year for his role in TV's Empire Falls
Hollywood legend Paul Newman has said that his next film could be his last.

The 81-year-old actor, whose movie career has spanned six decades, said: "I will probably have one film left in me - the last hurrah.

"When it's time to get out, it's time to get out." Newman has made over 50 films, including Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, and The Towering Inferno.

He won a best actor Oscar for his role as Fast Eddie Felson in the 1986 film The Color of Money.

The veteran star spoke about his career plans while on a fundraising campaign for a camp that he co-founded for gravely ill children.

He claimed he had a project in mind for his next film, but offered no more details.

Recent projects have included 2002's Road to Perdition and the TV mini-series Empire Falls, for which Newman won an Emmy.

The actor voices a character in the latest animated film from Pixar, Cars, which was released in the US earlier this month.

He has been married to actress Joanne Woodward since 1958.
