Actor Tony Curtis Dies

Tony Curtis, 85, passed away at midnight on Wednesday night at his home in Nevada.  The actor suffered from COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and was hospitalized in mid-July after he had trouble breathing.

Curtis is best known for his films Spartacus, Sweet Smell of Success and Some Like It Hot.  Married five times and father to Jamie Lee Curtis, he was a talented man with a passion for life. “Eighty fucking years old. I don’t feel any different now than I did when I was 30,” he told Esquire in 2006.

Rest In Peace, Tony Curtis.
