Paul Newman: Newman's Own

In 1998, Paul Newman was overjoyed to see his eponymous line of food products reach $100 million in earnings (all of which the actor donated to charity).

Newman admitted, however, that he was "a little embarrassed" by his culinary success. How so? 'Newman's Own' salad dressing was, somewhat sadly, out-grossing 'Newman's Own' films!

[A noted political activist, Newman -- a delegate (under Eugene McCarthy) to the tumultuous 1968 Democratic Party convention and (under Jimmy Carter) to a United Nations General Assembly session on disarmament -- once ranked 19th on Nixon's notorious "enemies list". He later became part owner of The Nation.]
