Now in his 70s, Porter has spent much of his professional life as a writer of travel guides but he is himself gay and has long been a connoisseur of the secret lives of stars.He was the next-door neighbour in Key West, Florida, of the playwright Tennessee Williams (who wrote two of Newman’s most famous roles and enjoyed a weekend tryst with him).Once, when asked if he was ever tempted to be unfaithful, he famously replied: “Why go out for hamburger when you’ve got steak at home? As for Paul, he dines out frequently and on the most succulent filet mignon, from what I hear.” The breathtaking revelation of this incendiary biography is the sheer number of secret lovers, both female and male, that Newman enjoyed.” Joan Crawford, who had slept with Newman on a couple of occasions during his first marriage, was dismissive of this remark. Darwin Porter has written several salacious biographies of Hollywood personalities who were secretly bisexual, including Katharine Hepburn, Marlon Brando and Howard Hughes.
His first serious love affair, while in the Navy, had been with the actor Robert Stack and while at college he also had a sexual encounter with Brando after visiting him backstage in New York.
It was reported last month that he had been readying their oldest child, Nell, to take over his Newman's Own salad dressings company, the profits of which are given to a charitable foundation.
He also has two daughters from his first marriage to Jackie Witte.
The Rolex Daytona was inspired by racecar drivers and enthusiasts, most notably, iconic actor Paul Newman, who reportedly wore his Daytona every day from 1972 until his death in 2008.
