Hollywood legend and gay icon Tony Curtis died last night. According to ET:
His daughter Jamie Lee Curtis’ rep has confirmed to ET the news of the legendary actor’s passing. Jamie reacted to her father’s passing, telling ET, “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.”… Curtis, whose real name was Bernard Schwartz, was perhaps most known for his comedic turn in Billy Wilder’s ‘Some Like It Hot’ with co-stars Marilyn Monroe and Jack Lemmon.
Yes it’s always tough when someone dies, but there are people all over the news saying how sad they are and what a loss it is. He was 85 folks! He was married to six women, one of whom was a gorgeous blonde with a huge rack, and won an Oscar. I’d say he lived a pretty good life. This isn’t exactly a reason to be faced with our own mortalities, so let’s stop with the crocodile tears, shall we?
Oh and in case you were wondering, Todd is at sensitivity training, so I’m filling in.
UPDATE: Oops my mistake. He didn’t win an Oscar- he was just nominated.
