Tony Curtis was a wonderfully idiosyncratic man. His roles included a cross-dressing jazz musician, a medieval Briton with a Brooklyn accent and a Lawrence Olivier’s slave boy toy. He once cheated on his blonde bombshell wife, Janet Leigh, to have an affair with another blonde bombshell, Marilyn Monroe… and afterwards almost came to blows with her husband, playwright Arthur Miller.
Now, after his death, add one more charming idiosyncrasy to the list: he was buried with his iPhone.
Apparently, when Tony Curtis was buried on Monday, he was interred with his favorite possessions. Not only did he go into the ground still clutching his iPhone, but the 85-year old Oscar-nominated actor was also buried with a Stetson hat, an Armani scarf, driving gloves and a copy of his favorite novel, Anthony Adverse.
Let’s all hope Mr. Curtis thought ahead of a good charging solution when he’s down there. I’m not sure HyperMac sells a battery big enough.
RIP Mr. Curtis, you wonderfully weird man. You’ll be missed.
