WESTPORT, Conn. – Paul Newman, the Academy-Award winning superstar who personified cool as the anti-hero of such films as “Hud,” ”Cool Hand Luke” and “The Color of Money” — and as an activist, race car driver and popcorn impresario — has died. He was 83.

The Cleveland native died Friday after a long battle with cancer at his farmhouse near Westport, publicist Jeff Sanderson said. He was surrounded by his family and close friends.
