On a bustling Broadway stage in 1953, during a performance of “Picnic,” two actors’ paths crossed. It wasn’t until they shared the screen in “The Long Hot Summer” that sparks truly flew. By January 29, 1958, they were united in matrimony, and together, they raised three daughters. Paul Newman, already a father of three from his union with Jaqueline Witte, found enduring love once more. Their golden romance spanned five decades, only parting with Newman’s passing in 2008.
