    Unhappy Paul Newman has lung cancer

    FILM legend Paul Newman is suffering from lung cancer, according to U.S. magazine reports.

    The Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid actor, 83, has been suffering from ill health for many months and in May was forced to pull out of directing a production of John Steinbeck's Of Mice And Men.

    Two U.S. publications quote friends of the actor saying the former chain-smoker has been diagnosed with lung cancer at the New York’s Sloan-Kettering Cancer Centre, a few hours drive from his Connecticut home, where he lives his wife Joanne Woodward.

    A friend of the actor told the National Enquirer: 'We have known he is seriously ill for several weeks but his loved ones are being very protective and saying very little.'

    Newman has denied previous cancer reports in March after he missed a fundraising event for his Hole in The Wall Gang children's charity.
    The same month, he cancelled an appearance on U.S. talk show The Late Show With David Letterman.

    His spokesperson played down his hospitalisation, insisting Newman was 'being treated for athlete’s foot and hair loss'.

    A cancer patient was quoted in the New York Post newspaper in March that he had seen Newman at the oncologists regularly.

    He said: 'He's been there a lot, he's even worked out in the waiting room, doing the squat thrusts.

    Last time, he was in there he had a long beard. (His wife) Joanne Woodward is there waiting for him and being very sweet with the assistants.'

    Newman retired from acting last year, blaming his failing memory.

    Sad. He has given so much to charity. A good man.

    A chain smoker that's made it 83 years, that's great.

    I hate it for him, it's not a pretty sight.

    ^Wow, I had no idea he smoked. I certainly hope he quit, because it will help to prolong his life.
