Paul Newman in 1965

The legendary actor Paul Newman has died aged 83. The screen hearthrob starred in about 60 films over 50 years.

Marriage to Joanne Woodward

He had talent - nominated 10 times for an Oscar - he had good looks, charm, a social conscience, and Joanne Woodward. The pair married in 1958 after starring together in The Long, Hot Summer.

With Joanne Woodward

Theirs was a Hollywood match made in heaven - the marriage lasted 50 years. They co-starred numerous times, and he directed her in four films including Rachel, Rachel in 1968.

With Robert Redford, both in advancing years

But he also had a memorable partnership with Robert Redford. The silver fox and the golden boy set the template for the buddy movie.

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

Their on-screen chemistry helped cement Newman and Redford as film icons. But they co-starred in just two films, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (pictured) and The Sting.

When not before - or behind - the camera, Newman raised money for good causes through sales of his sauces and salad dressings. Here, he plays the clown in Zippo's Circus in London for a children's charity.

The of the Newman-Haas Racing team

Also keen on fast cars, Newman co-owned a racing team - and provided the voice for Doc Hudson, a retired racing car, in the animated film Cars.

Waxwork being made at Madame Tussauds

An iconic figure for generations of film-goers, among Newman's many accolades was to be cast in wax at Madame Tussauds. And he won an Oscar in 1986 for The Color of Money.

Cool Hand Luke

Among his other Oscar-nominated performances was his role in the 1967 prison drama Cool Hand Luke, in which he played inmate Luke Johnson, an outsider determined to escape.

As representative of the U.S. Mission to the United Nations in 1978

An avowedly political man proud of his liberal beliefs, Newman enjoyed his inclusion on President Nixon's enemies list - "the highest single honour I've ever received," he said.
