Legendary actor Tony Curtis has died of a heart attack aged 85.

Fans and celebrities are paying their respects to a true movie star.  Curtis who was married six times had a film career that spanned 5 decades from 1949 to 2005 with hits such as “Spartacus” and later “Some Like It Hot.”

Curtis’s daughter Jamie Lee Curtis whose mother Janet Leigh died of cardiac arrest in 2004 — issued the following 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.”

Roger Moore, Curtis’s co-star on the series “The Persuaders,” told Sky News: “You never think that friends are going. I’m very sad and also sad for his wife because she adored him.”
