Hollywood-magnate-turned-food-company-proprietor Paul Newman would've turned 92 this year. Here, we look back at Paul Newman's storied life throughout his career.
Paul Newman enlisted in the Navy at age 17 and served for three years. Color blindness prevented him from achieving his initial goal of becoming a pilot.
Playing with photographer Sanford Roth's cat, Louis XIV, in 1956.
Newman met Joanne Woodward during a Broadway production of "Picnic" in 1953 (she was an understudy; he had a supporting role). They were married for 50 years, until his death in 2008.
He screen-tested with James Dean for the role of Aron in "East of Eden" (1955), but didn't get the part.
In 1958, on the set of Arthur Penn's first film, "The Left-Handed Gun."
Newman had six children: a son and two daughters with his first wife, Jackie Witte, and three daughters with Woodward.
He starred opposite Elizabeth Taylor in the 1958 adaptation of Tennessee Williams's "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof." Williams was unhappy with the film, a sentiment Newman echoed.
Woodward won the Academy Award for Best Actress in 1958 for her role in "The Three Faces of Eve." Newman himself would not win an Oscar until three decades later.
Newman takes to the waters while in Italy to promote "Hud" at the 1963 Venice Film Festival. Actress Barbara Steele remembers: "I don't know how, but I ended up hanging out with Paul Newman, who was at the peak of his beauty. He was a Greek god, absolutely stunning."

In 1968, on the set of "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid."
With Clint Eastwood in 1972, the same year he started racing cars professionally.
In 1982, the year he starred in "The Verdict," the actor co-founded Newman's Own, a food company that gives 100 percent of its after-tax profits to charity.
Newman won his only Academy Award for Best Actor in 1987, for his role opposite Tom Cruise in "The Color of Money." He had received an honorary Oscar the year before.
Paul Newman died on September 26, 2008. He is survived by his wife and five daughters.
