Joanne Woodward may be best known as the fashionably sexy accessory of husband Paul Newman, but there is much more to the hot blonde from Georgia than that. As a pretty teen she entered and won many beauty contests, but acting was her passion. She moved to New York, started to study, got roles on the burgeoning boob tube, and met a then-unknown Newman, who reportedly said upon seeing Joanne in all her youthful beauty, “Jeez, what an extraordinarily pretty girl”--talented and observant, that Newman. Joanne started getting theatrical work with Count Three and Pray (1955) and won an Oscar for The Three Faces of Eve (1957). But her post-Oscar work is the closest fans can come to seeing what lies beneath the beautiful but skingy actress’s golden exterior. In Paris Blues (1961), Joanne is in bed with Newman wearing a bustier that only makes the fact that she’s never shown her bust that much more tragic.
