Paul Newman does not have cancer, his rep says.

Reports that the iconic film legend is not battling terminal lung cancer are "not true," the actor's rep Toni Howard says, shooting down a month's worth of rumors.

Whispers of a life-threatening disease started in May when the 83-year-old citied illness for pulling out of directing duties at his Westport, Conn. hometown's production of Our Town.

The rest snowballed from there. Subsequent stories reported the Oscar winner, a lifelong smoker, was diagnosed at New York's Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and was being treated as an outpatient.
