Tom Hanks Pays Tribute to Paul Newman
Tom Hanks released a statement Tuesday remembering his Road to Perdition costar Paul Newman, who died at age 83:

"Paul Newman told me his hotel in Chicago was a room at the YMCA, which was not hard to imagine. He considered himself just another member of the acting company, who would call his wife during breaks and confess to feeling self-conscious on the first day of shooting. But he was Paul Newman, and could not mask the fact he was simply – yet elegantly – an extraordinary artist and man. How lucky we all have been."
