Paul Newman became a movie star by playing anti-heroes who bore little resemblance to the caring philanthropist and devoted husband that America now mourns. Newman died Friday at his home near Westport, Conn., after a long battle with cancer. He was 83. In films such as The Hustler, Hud, Cool Hand Luke, and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Newman played con artists and cads who used their masculine wiles to bed women and steal money. Playing an older, wiser "Fast Eddy Felson," his character in 1961's The Hustler, Newman won an Oscar in 1986 for his role in The Color of Money.
