Whoopi Goldberg is celebrating the life of her late pal Paul Newman because the acting legend was her guardian angel.
Newman watched over the actress-turned-talk show host during two health scares - and she remains eternally grateful.
Speaking on her US talk show, The View, Goldberg said: "He was one of the best people I've ever known. I got very sick 15 or 20 years ago, to the point where I almost died.
"I was in a coma and when I woke up, sitting on the windowsill in my hospital room was Paul Newman. I thought to myself, 'am I dead?'"
She said Newman came to her rescue a second time.
"When he introduced Newman's Own Lemonade we did a photo shoot with him holding the lemonade and me standing by a pool of water.
"After the shoot I got very sick and they took me to the hospital. He wouldn't leave until he knew I was okay.
"He was a great man."
Newman died on Friday from cancer at the age of 83. - Wenn
