Paul Newman. I.M No Icon
Veteran actor PAUL NEWMAN doesn't consider himself an icon - even though he's one of Hollywood's most legendary stars.
But although the COOL HAND LUKE star plays down his movie achievements, he insists his film career is still far from over.
On being labelled an icon, Newman says, "BRANDO, LEE J. COBB, OLIVIER are. I'm not. I really should not have mentioned just those three because there are too many people I admire."
And according to the actor, ROAD TO PERDITION won't be his swan song. He says, "No, it's probably closer to a vulture than a swan song. I don't seem to be able to retire."
"I'd love to do another film with (his wife) JOANNE (WOODWARD). There's still a little vinegar left in the old dog yet."
