Who do you think is/was the more accomplished actor - Robert De Niro or Paul Newman?
They're both Hollywood greats, Newman has won an Oscar and De Niro two Oscars, they started acting during two very different eras in American cinema. They have also both shot to fame for roles in two boxing films, Newman in "Somebody Up There Likes Me" and De Niro in "Raging Bull." But who do you prefer? Who has had the best career and who has/had the most raw talent?
They also have very different actig styles. I love both actors, but I think that Paul Newman had a lot of really great roles whereas De Niro, as he has gotten older, has become a caracature of sorts. How many times has someone said "You tawkin ta me?" He's amazing though and I love him, I just really have an affection for Paul Newman. He was in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. When that movie came out, people weren't gay, that was just not ok, and he took on that role (although the movie is still heavily edited as compared to the play). That takes guts. A lot of it. I feel that his career aged a bit more gracefully than De Niro's as well. Again, De Niro does great work constantly but sometimes I don't understand why he takes some of the projects that he does. Plus Newman's cookies are the best
