To the salad dressing goes the window dressing.

The details of the late Paul Newman's will have been made public, and reveal to whom—and what—the legendary actor chose to bequeath his belongings.

While the lion's share of the charitable man's personal possessions were, as expected, left to his wife Joanne Woodward, Newman opted to leave his three Oscars and various other theatrical awards, including an Emmy, three Golden Globes and a Screen Actors Guild Award, among others, to his Newman's Own Foundation.

According to the will, signed by Newman in Connecticut on April 11 of this year, the actor's "tangible personal property," including real estate holdings, musical instruments and works of art were left to Woodward.

The widowed actress will also maintain control of Newman's production companies and his various real estate holdings, including the duo's shared home in Westport, Conn.

The avid driver also instructed that his airplane and race cars be auctioned off to the highest bidder, with proceeds going back to his estate.

Additionally, the ever-generous actor directed that his interest in the Newman-founded Newman's Own and Salad King companies were to be directed back to his Newman's Own Foundation, which would in turn distribute the profits to charity.

Newman died of cancer on Sept. 27. He was 83.

Newman's 18-page last will and testament was first obtained by Radar Online.
