Paul Newman Silence Caused by His Lungs

There have been a growing number of rumors circulating about Paul Newman's health. The latest reports indicate that Newman is suffering from cancer.

Fears were growing for Paul Newman last night following US magazine reports that the Hollywood legend is fighting lung cancer. The double-Oscar winning star is said to have been diagnosed with the disease at New York’s Sloan-Kettering Cancer Centre, where he is an outpatient.

Two US publications claim the 83-year-old actor, a former chain-smoker, is under the care of a leading oncologist. One quotes a family member as saying: “It’s so awful. He’s dying.” Last night a source who has known the family for years confirmed: “We have known he is seriously ill for several weeks but his loved ones are being very protective and saying very little.”
He retired from acting last year citing failing memory as the reason. This is one part we are sure he will never forget.
