The Dailymail online reports, that new book Paul Newman: A Life, written by Shawn Levy, portrays the late actor as a functioning alcoholic and also reportedly describes how Newman, wearing a bottle opener on a chain around his neck, put away “beer after beer after beer, a case or more a day,” followed by Scotch.

Levy’s book also claims that despite his reputation as Hollywood’s most faithful husband, Newman is said to have had an affair with a journalist who was writing an article on his movie Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid. The biography is due to be published in May in the US.
