Paul Newman And Joanne Woodward Were Blessed With Fifty Years Of Joyful Marriage

It so happened that the two most attractive movie stars were married to one another. Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward were a charming, devoted couple who were married for 50 years until Paul passed away.

According to The History Channel, the two performers first crossed paths on the set of "Picnic" in the 1950s, where they began their growing acting careers. While still married, Newman and his wife parted ways to pursue prominent parts in Hollywood productions.

When production for 1958's "The Long, Hot Summer" came to a close, Newman had already finalized his divorce from his first wife. The two got married in Las Vegas after he snatched Woodward away.

The next decades were marked by romantic success and career advancement. They settled in Connecticut as a content family with three girls. Paul Newman eventually landed his biggest parts in "The Sting" and "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" among all of this. In addition, his wife Joanne received an Oscar for best actress for her performance in "The Three Faces of Eve."

Paul Newman also launched the "Newman's Own" brand of organic food items, and he carried on with these and other charitable endeavors until his death from lung cancer in 2008. He and Joanne celebrated their golden wedding anniversary and 50 years of blissful marriage in the same year.

According to The New York Times, Newman is frequently cited as asking, "I have steak at home; why go out for hamburger?" in which he refers to his wife Joanne as the "steak" in the phrase. And she believed that laughter was the key to a happy marriage. She said in an interview with TODAY that while beauty could dwindle, a partner who makes you laugh every day is something to cherish.

One writer who was in their company at a dinner party in the 1970s was particularly taken in by their electrifying chemistry, which has been seen by others.

"Above me, Joanne Woodward was sprawled out on the ground, her legs out in front, her back against the trunk of a large tree. According to The Washington Post, author Carol Ross Joynt observed that Paul Newman's head was resting on her lap and that he sometimes reached up to stroke her face and hair while appreciating the music. I could have gaped. It remains the most romantic thing I've ever seen.
