Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward Prove That True Love Is Real

Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward are the most adorable couple ever photographed.

This is impossible to deny.

They loved each other so much and they wore it on their faces.

Don’t believe me?

I challenge you to look at these photos and not think “wow, this is an adorable couple.”

“True love is real.”


This one is so good.

For real. Look.

Smoking is bad but they do look cute together.

“Pucker up!”

Popcorn is just empty calories but there is nothing empty about the love in this photo.


I find myself looking at these photos of them all the time because the world can be a depressing place.

I love this one.

Anyway, today is National Puppy Day which is my excuse to share with you my favorite Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward photo.

Have a great day.

It sure feels that way to me, and here at Mother Jones, we’ve been thinking a lot about what journalism needs to do differently, and how we can have the biggest impact.

We kept coming back to one word: corruption. Democracy and the rule of law being undermined by those with wealth and power for their own gain. So we're launching an ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project to do deep, time-intensive reporting on systemic corruption, and asking the MoJo community to help crowdfund it.

We aim to hire, build a team, and give them the time and space needed to understand how we got here and how we might get out. We want to dig into the forces and decisions that have allowed massive conflicts of interest, influence peddling, and win-at-all-costs politics to flourish.

It's unlike anything we've done, and we have seed funding to get started, but we're looking to raise $500,000 from readers by July when we'll be making key budgeting decisions—and the more resources we have by then, the deeper we can dig. If our plan sounds good to you, please help kickstart it with a tax-deductible donation today.

Thanks for reading—whether or not you can pitch in today, or ever, I'm glad you're with us.
