Newman performed in over 60 films. He played iconic roles in such classics as Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Hustler, Cool Hand Luke and The Sting.
He played varied roles in his career, even performing the voice for the character Doc Hudson in Pixar's 2006 animated film Cars.

George Michael arrested in toilets (again)!

Yes George Michael arrested in toilets once again! Only this time he was after the other type of crack.

According to The Telegraph newspaper, George Michael was arrested for possession of marijuana and crack cocaine, in a north London underground toilet, after police were tipped off by a lavatory attendant.

George Michael has said:

"I want to apologise to my fans for screwing up again, and to promise them I'll sort myself out. And to say sorry to everybody else, just for boring them".

You would imagine that multi-millionaire pop stars would avoid public toilets like the plague. But no, not George. In fact he seems to use public conveniences like some sort of recreational convenience store.
A 'one-stop shop' where you can arrange a date, buy some condoms, buy some crack and shockingly, maybe even go to the toilet.

The first public toilet to start selling CDs, DVDs, milk and bread will definitely gain itself a life long customer.
