Paul Newman: “The first time I remember women reacting to me was when we were filming Hud”

Paul Newman

“The first time I remember women reacting to me was when we were filming Hud in Texas. Women were literally trying to climb through the transoms at the motel where I stayed. At first, it’s flattering to the ego. At first. Then you realize that they’re mixing me up with the roles I play — characters created by writers who have nothing to do with who I am.”
