Sometimes couples sizzle on and off the screen. Here are 10 real-life pairs, from Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie to Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise, who made it work on both sides of the camera.
Paul Newman’s Cool Hand Luke is just one of many rebels in movie history who’ve carved places for themselves in “1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die.” Here are ten movies with rabble-rousers of historic import.
Speaking about his long-time friend and mentor, Robert Redford told a crowd in New York City that he learned a great deal from the late Paul Newman, especially generosity. “Back then it was really about actors playing roles. It wasn’t until later that it became more about actors’ personalities,” Redford told a packed theater at Lincoln Center.
The crowd enthusiastically hung on Redford’s words. This was no doubt because of the star power of the great actor, director and Sundance Institute creator (particularly because the audience skewed toward his generation), but perhaps even more so because the crowd was packed with committed environmentalists. This was a special, intimate conversation between Redford, a longtime green leader, and veteran radio journalist Bob Edwards (formerly of NPR and now of Sirius radio), hosted by the New York-based Natural Resources Defense Council (Watch video of NRDC head Frances Beinecke accepting a 2009 Heart of Green Award).
