I know back in the day he couldn't get caught accidentally getting someone pregnant, becuase men don't produce babies. Maybe the dude change before he died, but his generation helped bring all that is wrong with the entertainment industry to fruition.

Glad they cut his sex scene from his gladiator movie. It was bad enough they made obscure references to it in the movie "airplane".

RIP Tony. I hope things can be corrected!

No one is perfect, it is the ones whom realize thier error and are repentive of it and try to change the problems in which they caused that are valuable!

I have always been fond of him. I feel for Jaime Lee. I lost my mom 4 months ago. It's hard to lose a parent, no matter who you are.

I adored his acting and he was easy on the eyes. I do not recall seeing him in public with his daughter Jamie Curtis. I wonder what be her comment. I betcha she will come out with a book. As a homosexual he was one of the old ones like Rock Hudson who did not die of aids or escape it. I respected him for stating " Gay means happy not homosexual". He made the comment in the Enquirer of Star years ago.
I will miss his beautiful eyes.
