Tony Curtis, the Hollywood actor best known for his performances in Some Like it Hotand Spartacuspassed away last night at his home in Las Vegas. He was 85 years old.
Tony's daughter Jamie Lee Curtis released this statement:
"My father leaves behind a legacy of great performances in movies and in his paintings and assemblages. He leaves behind children and their families who loved him and respected him and a wife and in-laws who were devoted to him. He also leaves behind fans all over the world. He will be greatly missed."
Here's hoping Jack Lemmon meets Tony up at the pearly gates and they decide to slip on some dresses for old time's sake. And hopefully, Marilyn will join in the fun, too.
Oh, and if you haven't seen Some Like it Hot or Spartacus you're a shameful gay and should rectify that situation quickly. Put it on your Netflix queue right now, 'cause you know everyone else is. Here's a clip from the legendary Some Like it Hot, below:
