BTW, I actually met Paul Newman. I produced a TV show back in 2007–2008 which focused on promoting eco-friendly living. Newman got turned onto that by his daughter Nell and owned a restaurant in Connecticut which was all organic. In fact, we did the last known televised interview with him before he died.
