As fans continue to mourn the death of revered icon Paul Newman, one of the people closest to him – his older brother Arthur – is paying tribute to him.
"Beyond his place as a world famous 'super star,' his reputation as a top international racecar driver and rightful recognition as a most generous global philanthropist, Paul was my loyal and supportive brother for the past 83 years," Arthur said in a statement.
Since the actor's death last Friday, several stars and family members have offered condolences and recalled their fondest memories of the legendary actor.
