Newman's Brother Pays Tribute To His Superstar Sibling

PAUL NEWMAN's elder brother ARTHUR has paid tribute to the acting icon, describing him as a "loyal and supportive brother" and "the best human being I have ever known".
Speaking out four days (29Sep08) after the star lost his battle with cancer at the age of 83, his 84-year-old brother insists he was much more than a Hollywood legend - and never lost sight of the important things in life, like family.
Arthur Newman says in a statement, "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.
"Although he was a year younger, from the time we were boys, I always considered him my role model and mentor. His love for (wife) Joanne (Woodward), his daughters, and all in our family, will provide us strength in times to come. He was just about the best human being I have ever known."
The movie great's friends and family have paid their respects to the star at a private funeral service, where the actor was cremated.
Confirming the news, Newman's longterm friend and business partner A.E. Hotchner says, "It's all over."
Further details about the time and location of the funeral were unavailable as WENN went to press.
