That’s incorrect. His obituary only stated his comment in 1968 on infidelity which was:
“There’s no reason to roam. I have steak at home. Why should I go out for hamburger?”.
I believe he was a longterm vegetarian based on his product line.

I don't know where this myth of Paul Newman's vegetarianism came from. I believed it myself, but his obits are saying he ate hamburgers every day.
