Ailing Paul Newman looks more frail than ever as he is pushed around in a wheelchair

Wishing Mr. Newman all the best while he battles with his illness.

UK Daily Mail reports:
Once tall in the saddle, Paul Newman now needs a wheelchair after months of gruelling treatment to allegedly combat cancer. Looking increasingly frail, the film actor, who starred as Butch Cassidy alongside Robert Redford’s Sundance Kid, is a shadow of his former self. He looked pale and thin, his clothes almost hanging off him. Newman finally retired from his beloved acting career last year. And he said: 'I've been doing it for 50 years. That's enough. 'I'm not able to work any more as an actor at the level I would want to. You start to lose your memory, your confidence, your invention.' And last month it was reported that the 83-year-old screen icon, whose career spanned 50 years, is suffering from a cancer-related disease. MORE
