Paul Newman Vetoes Tony Awards

Actor PAUL NEWMAN has made it clear he'll be staying away from next month's (JUN03) TONY AWARDS - despite being nominated for his efforts in OUR TOWN.

Newman was also one of the actors who pulled no-shows at the OSCARS last month (MAR03). Nominated for his gangster turn in ROAD TO PERDITION, Newman lost the supporting actor award to ADAPTATION star CHRIS COOPER.

Newman notified the producers of the 8 June (03) Tony awards of his decision by letter to ISABELLE STEVENSON, chairman of the AMERICAN THEATER WING, co-presenters of the awards with the LEAGUE OF THE AMERICAN THEATERS AND PRODUCERS.

The actor reportedly stated that not only does he stay away from awards ceremonies nowadays, he no longer owns a tuxedo.
