[[HeAlsoDid Aside from his acting work]] he was also well known as a professional car racer - unlike SteveMcQueen he actually raced in the Le Mans 24 Hours and even finished second - and owner in UsefulNotes/IndyCar, and for his philanthropic work. In 1982, he co-founded the food company Newman's Own. All of the proceeds of the company, after taxes, were donated to charity. After divorcing his first wife, Jackie Witte in 1958, he married actress Joanne Woodward, and they remained together for 50 years, until his death (in Hollywood, a very remarked and rare feat on its own).

* DuelingStarsMovie: [[Film/ButchCassidyAndTheSundanceKid Two]] [[Film/TheSting memorable]] collaborations with his good friend Creator/RobertRedford.
** This was literally the case for ''Film/TheToweringInferno'' with [[TheRival co-star]] SteveMcQueen. [=McQueen=] insisted on having an equal number of lines with Newman, and the movie studio had to invent a new format for the promotional titles - DiagonalBilling - to give both actors equal billing.
