You may not be aware that she is suffering from Alzheimers, too. Have some compassion.
Not when you have an affair with Mrs. Newman's husband.
0P, there is no point at all to this thread. You should be ashamed!
OP...ummmm, people get old, duck. But she wasn't born an evil asshole like you.
For shame, OP. She is a wonderful human being, and yes, quite old.
You are an asshole.
Hmmmm..... I think she looks like a lovely, elderly woman out for dinner.
I hope I age as gracefully as her.
Why don't you queens have compassion for the the first Mrs. Newman.
The one whose husband Joanne stole?
r8 are you the op?
It is interesting how some here forget the fact Joanne is a home wrecker.
She broke up a marriage
R2, where did you read that she has Alzheimers?
No one steals a husband. R8, is your name Brandi?
You are the one full of cat poop OP- nasty person.
Yeah, OP. Nobody's gonna support you bitching about Joanne Woodward. You cunt.
[quote]It is interesting how some here forget the fact Joanne is a home wrecker.She broke up a marriage
I'm sorry, Mrs. Stephen Haines, but in the year 2013 we no longer ascribe to the quaint notion of "home wreckers" or believe an outside party can "break up a marriage."
Then Joanne should have stayed away until Paul sorted this thing out.
Instead they moved in together, while he was still married with children!
Pitiful thread. Just pitiful.
R15, I have way of thinking of all that: you cannot break up a happy home.
I like Newman's Salsa.
It is sad that people think it is okay for a woman to have an affair with a married man.
No thought to the wife or children, and the damage an affair can entail.
Look what happened to Scott Newman later.
Next time you guys are slamming some starlet having a fling with a married man, I'll bring up this post.
r16, are you Mamie Eisenhower?
what r5 said
Op is a hateful sow.
this OP is all kinds of cray-cray!
Crystal meth is a hell of a drug!
For 82 she looks good and healthy....Love her....
[quote]It is sad that people think it is okay for a woman to have an affair with a married man.
But it's wrong... [italic]shockingly[/italic] wrong!
r31 = Kristen Stewart.
You wish you were like Joanne, slut...
Ignore the "Joanne Woodward is a homewrecker" troll. This idiot has spewed his nonsense before. Ignore the moron.
Someone has shit in OP's cornflakes every day since he was 5.
My Bichon has a tight fro, I'm going to conk her hair with lye. ...any idea where I could find a mild solution? I don't want to burn her skin.
Yes, R30. This troll has been around here for years.
It's a sign of health that and 80+ person is not withering away, but Joanne has gained SO MUCH WEIGHT I'm thinking she's on cortisone or even some kind of Kemo. Is she sick?
[quote]Next time you guys are slamming some starlet having a fling with a married man, I'll bring up this post.
Don't bother bringing it up unless said "fling" results in a 50 year marriage, as it did with Woodward and Newman.
So this thread is wrong but making fun of those who died in the Brazilian nightclub fire is fine because "gallows humor helps us deal with tragedies"?
This site truly is a schizophrenic smorgasbord of truly disgusting people.
R20 - I would say Paul had as much to do with it. A woman can make a play for a married man but she can't force him to do something he doesn't want to do. People always blame the woman and call her names - he was the one who was married and had children, she wasn't.
Says the op.
The current 'Vanity Fair' reminds us that Woodward's supposed 'engagement' to Gore Vidal was a canny tactic.
Vidal was under pressure from his family about marriage, Woodward wanted to nudge Newman into leaving his wife. They let the idea gain traction, then Paul was duly reeled in. Supposedly. 'It was all so long ago.'
[quote]Pitiful thread. Just pitiful
I Know! And the OP probably thinks he is a progressive thinker making an important observation that MUST BE SHARED!
Some people on Datalounge are beyond petty. They're unbelievably stupid.
[quote]I'm thinking she's on cortisone or even some kind of Kemo.
She's almost 83. Looks good for 83.
[quote] This site truly is a schizophrenic smorgasbord of truly disgusting people.
Translation: I didn't get my way, so let me flounce around, kick and scream and call people names.
Flounce it, girl!
Well OP, hopefully you will die young and beautiful. The added bonus is that you won't have to see family and friends get old old old.
Did someone call for me?
Illiterate R41 meet R35.
It's spelled C H E M O.
She looks like any other old lady. When you're in your eighties, you're old. I guess the retard OP thinks that because she was a movie star she (or any other movie star) she should never look older than 30. What idiocy.
this is datalounge, not church. stop judging.
She looks great. God bless her.
Mean post I have to agree about Newman's Own products. They are supposed to be all-natural, but are chock full of crappy ingredients.
R4, yes, there IS a point to this thread: Joanne is old and fat and her grandson is fugly.
Other DL threads have flourished on less.
I got my way, diseased queen at r43. The offensive Brazilian nightclub thread was removed.
I think she looks sweet (albeit more than a passing resemblance to Maude Frickert.)
I was not aware that she was suffering from Alzheimer's. That is very sad.
I agree, a long happy marriage pretty much trumps any homewrecker charges.
According to one of Newman's biographers, Woodward was pregnant when she married Paul Newman, who was the father of three children by his first wife.
Newman also cheated on Woodward, according to his biographers.
Woodward, I think, won an Emmy playing an Alzheimer patient in the television film, "Do You Remember Love?" opposite Richard Kiley.
How "young" does OP demand a woman in her 80s to appear, I wonder?
She looks lovely and kind.
OP must be related to the rejected first wife.
I think it's just a case of OP being mentally ill.
It's sad when someone of her great beauty gives up on life. ...she could drop 50 pounds, work out, update her wardrobe, she would be working again.
So lovely in Jonathan Demme's PHILADELPHIA. I especially like the old-timey home movies at the end. Nice work there.
[quote]Next time you guys are slamming some starlet having a fling with a married man, I'll bring up this post.
And I'll bring up this thread when these same posters who are defending Woodward shit upon other celebs (those they dislike) who are aging or old.
The OP works out of NYC and is more than a bit odd. The moderator knows him and encourages the nonsense that OP comes up with since the idea is that people will come here and post. How do I know all this?
On the inside of DL. That is all you need to know. And the fact that OP has also posted other "provocative" items in the last few weeks. Sad.
DL has an inside? How many people work there?
Oh for fuck's sake.
R36, hon? Two consenting adults choosing to bang uglies together ≠ dozens of people perishing in a truly horrific manner.
One is a great tragedy, and yes, dark humor is something mankind has used for centuries to help us cope with awful things beyond our control.
The other? Not so much.
And just stop it with that tired 'home wrecker' business. You sound like my grandmother - who has been dead since the '80s. Besides, to steal a well-known (especially to you, I'd wager) turn of phrase: if the foundation of a house is strong, no storm, no matter how severe, can blow it away.
And starting a thread to point out that someone who is in her EIGHTIES looks OLD, omg! Trolls are ashamed of this thread.
And yet DL hates Angelina Jolie. I don't get it. Why is it o.k. for Paul Newman to leave his family, i.e. his children, and yet Brad Pitt, with no children, is stolen away by the succubus Angelina. JOanne Woodward and Paul Newman were two of the most sanctimonious know-it-alls in late 60s when they were on Dick Cavett's show telling us all how stupid we were and that they were so much smarter than the rest of us when it came to the Vietnam War. Sort of the Susan Sarandon and TIm Robbins of the day. There were hundreds of thousands of us who took to the streets long before those two phonies. I'm with OP.
You youth worshipping freaks of nature, like O.P. has yielded botoxed wax figure mutants and fish lipped zombie people to walk among us. Your opinions have no value in the face of the plastic you wrought upon our world. You have no inkling of what beauty looks like. Anyone who listens to your drivel should have their head examined.
You're with the OP probably means you ARE the OP, r68.
Some threads in here are really trashy and insulting.
Joanne Woodward doesn't deserve this shit and no one deserves to get trashed because they grew old. I have expressed my opinion about Miss Woodward in another threads. My opinion is certainly, certainly positive.
* other threads
People get old.
Deal with it, you vile, hateful piece of trash.
Woodward and Betty DeGeneres, Ellen's mother, were classmates at LSU. They were both speech majors. In Betty's book, she said that Woodward was the star student in the department.
Both women dropped out of LSU. Woodward went to New York to study acting and to become a stage actress. DeGeneres dropped out to get married; she later returned to school, got her degree and became a speech therepist
50 years of marriage in an industry that considers 1 yr long term! That is soul mates. Life happens. Not always fair. Sympathy to the ex wife. I'm sure she got over it.
But for 2 people to find that kind of love should be celebrated. There is only one life to live. Glad they had a success! Wish we all could be so lucky.
WOW. What kind of idiot doesn't know we get old, if we are lucky.
If it is so offensive to you, I hope you die young asshole
OP: gay, Gay, GAY. Typically mad about it, and extertnalizing it. This is tired, dear. Get some therapy, a blog, meds, something.
My brother had a friend who met Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward more than once. He said those two people were the nicest, down to earth people he ever met,and they gave a lot to charity.
If she were as nice as people on this thread are claiming, she would write the check for the nose job that grandson so desperately needs.
FF, RACIST TROLL OP!
Not to put too fine a point on it, OP, but before you ever post again you may want to consider these two simple facts:
(1) In her lifetime Ms Woodward achieved international acclaim and the respect of her peers.
(2) In your lifetime it's highly unlikely that you will have either.
No matter, she is a home-wrecker. She broke up a marriage and is responsible for the death of Paul's son, Scott Newman.
Well no one put a gun to Paul Newman's head getting involved with Joanne, please!
[quote] Well no one put a gun to Paul Newman's head getting involved with Joanne, please!
But Joanne could have walked away. Instead she was screwing Mrs. Newman's husband.
It's just terrible how they created that line to fund handicapped and ill children's camps, isn't it, freeper?
You don't understand their recipes, because arrowroot cookies are not on the trailer park menu. If they had put out fruit loops and moon pies, you might have considered it, but once you discovered the whole point of the corporation was to marry capitalist service to social service independent of government (ah, I guess your attention span just expired...never mind.)
R83, get over yourself. We know this is really all about you.
I have to agree that the Newman products suck big time. Better to buy something decent at half the price and then donate the difference.
R86 it is all because of guilt. Both of them caused the death of Scott Newman with their affair.
Scott could never get over the betrayal.
[quote]Scott could never get over the betrayal.
What's wrong with you? Scott Newman died because he chose to ingest Valium, Darvon, Quaaludes and cocaine.
Michael Moore is fat!
There's a rumor that the attendants in the assisted care facility Woodward is in have been shocked at some of the things she's been divulging about her long marriage to Newman.
Might come as a surprise to the Joanne Woodward who is still living in the Connecticut home she shared with Newman for fifty years.
r93 is insane it would seem.
I think she just goes into the center when she gets "confused" and comes out. Alzheimers is progressive. Apparently someone either in her home or at the center talked and said that when she is in that state she talks about Newman with bitterness and has spilled some of his sexual secrets. But it's only a rumor.
[quote] Scott Newman died because he chose to ingest Valium, Darvon, Quaaludes and cocaine.
Driven to drugs by Joanne.
She's on Zoloft.
Can you imagine the hell life would be to get to age 82 and still desperately trying to look 35? Who gives a f*k what the shallow think, only another shallow cares. She's not plastic nor riddled with botulism botox which travels throughout the body doing god knows what, nor compelled to wear gloves everywhere she goes because she's ashamed of the look of her arms. She looks like a human being, not some morphed special effects alien. She doesn't hate her body parts and is not at war with them like the shallows are. The shallows wear their idiocy like a badge and the great thing is you can immediately see their depth of character or lack of it the moment they step into a room.
I worked with Joanne long ago and she is a Facebook friend of mine. She posts occasionally and sounds absolutely sane and reasonable.
If she's forgetful at times, well...she is 82, after all.
"Can you imagine the hell life would be to get to age 82 and still desperately trying to look 35?"
His first marriage lasted nine years. His second marriage lasted fifty.
The gorgeous couple made an appearance on What's My Line? when Paul was starring on Broadway in Sweet Bird of Youth.
Joanne had just completed The Fugitive Kind, which was the film of Tennessee Williams' Orpheus Descending with Anna Mangnani and Marlon Brando.
Typically nasty freep attack on a liberal for--daring to exist. These people are nasty to their cores and so full of hate they can attack someone simply for continuing to breathe.
[quote] His first marriage lasted nine years. His second marriage lasted fifty.
It would have lasted a lot longer if Joanne didn't break it up
It wasn't Joanne's fault Paul wanted to spew his seed into others beside his wife.
One of my favorite actresses. And, I think, her work in Rachel, Rachel is her best.
Just wanted to remind all of the people who are sticking their noses into her personal life that the woman is an artist and a great one. And so was her husband.
Now, let's go back to recasting Falcon Crest and leave them alone.
[quote] It wasn't Joanne's fault Paul wanted to spew his seed into others beside his wife.
She didn't have to be the one who took his seed.
Joanne looks like a nice suburban grannie now, which is pretty much what she looked like during the best years of her career.
Well, is she or isn't she?!
She was a very different sort of young actress than was typical in Hollywood in the 1950s, esp. in 3 Faces of Eve, The Long Hot Summer, No Down Payment and The Fugitive Kind. A very unique energy that later disappeared.
Marriage and living in Paul's shadow dulled her confidence, I think. Rachel, Rachel was her last great performance. She was ridiculous in Man in the Moon Marigolds and just dreary in The Glass Menagerie.
Fine in Mr. and Mrs. North....but...dull.
I hope that OP dies and terribly painful death.
Candice, dear, go ask Mr. H on his thread. I'll never tell.
Paul Newman was one of the steadier, brighter stars from his generation. He didn't do anything he didn't want to do; if he decided to leave his 1st wife to marry Woodward, well that was his choice. I doubt there was much anyone could do to make him do otherwise.
And he and Woodward were married for decades, happily. So he apparently made a good decision.
Woodward did seminal work in the tv movie, SYBIL, with Sally Field. She also should have gotten an Emmy.
But can we all agree Joanne did not fulfill the promise of her 1950s career?
She was never a sex symbol so she could have easily evolved into a brilliant older character actress like Elle Burstyn or Helen Mirren.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
