LEGENDARY screen actor Paul Newman has been diagnosed with terminal lung cancer, according to reports in the United States.

Newman, 83, gave up acting in May last year as he felt he was "too old" to perform at the level he would want to.

A former chain-smoker, Newman starred in such classics as Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, alongside close friend Robert Redford, and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.

According to the The Los Angeles Times, there has been no confirmation from Newman's publicist or the hospital he has allegedly received treatment at.
