Hopper Missed Out On Woodward Romance

Subscribe to Dennis Hopper alerts

Dennis Hopper missed out on a romance with actress Joanne Woodward when her husband-to-be Paul Newman turned up at her apartment to make sure the EASY RIDER star wasn't invited back after a night out.

Hopper took Woodward to the premiere of Giant back in 1956, and felt it was the start of something special.

He says, "Unfortunately, it wasn't a pleasant evening for Joanne. Nobody knew who she was and the interviewer would say, 'And who is this you brought with you? Is this your secretary?.'

"She was secretly meeting Paul Newman, who was married, and I didn't know this. So I took Joanne home and I kept asking if I could come in, and she pushed me down a flight of stairs, because Paul was waiting in her apartment. That was a funny evening."
