Rep Says Paul Newman Does Not Have Lung Cancer
Posted on June 10, 2008Paul Newman's representative has denied reports that the Oscar winning actor and philanthropist is dying of lung cancer.
We hope that the rep is telling the truth and that Paul is healthy and happy.Reports that the iconic film legend is not battling terminal lung cancer are "not true," the actor's rep Toni Howard says, shooting down a month's worth of rumors. Whispers of a life-threatening disease started in May when the 83-year-old citied illness for pulling out of directing duties at his Westport, Conn. hometown's production of Our Town.
The rest snowballed from there. Subsequent stories reported the Oscar winner, a lifelong smoker, was diagnosed at New York's Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and was being treated as an outpatient.
