The details of the late actor Paul Newman‘s last will have been released this week. The will, signed on April 11, 2008 by Newman, was filed in Connecticut. As expected, the actors wife Joanne Woodward will inherit all property and personal possessions.

He left his Oscar and other awards to Newman’s Own Foundation, as well as interest in Newman’s Own and Salad King. All profits from those business holdings are to be distributed to charity. Newman’s airplane and race cars are to be sold and the proceeds will revert back to the estate.

Newman retired from acting in May 2007 and was diagnosed with cancer in March 2008. He died at home in Westport, Connecticut, surrounded by family on September 26, 2008.

Paul Newman was survived by his wife Joanne Woodward, daughters Susan and Stephanie from his first marriage, daughters Nell, Lissy and Clea with wife Joanne, and two grandsons. He was preceded in death by his son Scott.
