Jamie Lee Curtis is opening up about her legendary father Tony Curtis, who passed away last month - and she doesn't seem to have the nicest things to say about him.

In a recent interview, Curtis was frank about her father's role in her life, saying, "he was not a father."

She added:

"The invention of Tony Curtis was his life. He was in the navy, he was present for the Japanese surrender in Tokyo Bay - then he became this whole other thing, he changed his name and he changed his life.

Children, as we all know, are complicated and messy. He was not a father and he was not interested in being a father. It's not a slant against him, he was very clear. He did what he was supposed to do from a financial standpoint, which was honorable of him but he was not an involved father."

Jamie Lee says that she and her father were not close however, she did say that, "we are the evidence of him. We walk the walk led by him. All of us got something from him. I, of course, got his desperate need for attention."

It's sad when children don't have close relationships with their parents, especially when one of their parents is one of the most well-known actors in our time.

Here's hoping she finds some closure.

Jamie Lee Curtis, On Her Father's Death

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad Sad

While they might not have always seen eye to eye, Jamie Lee Curtis and her father, Tony Curtis, respected each other professionally.

During her early childhood, Tony had a substance abuse problem. Coupled with an acrimonious divorce from his wife Janet, Jamie was never able to understand her father, " I understand him now, perhaps not as a father, but as a man."

Releasing a statement on Wednesday, after his passing, Jamie Lee seemed to have forgiven her father, "he leaves behind children and their families who loved and respected him and a wife and in-laws who were devoted to him. He leaves behind fans all over the world."

It's always hard losing a family member.

We love and support you girl! Stay strong.

How exciting!

Legendary Hollywood icon Tony Curtis is just shy of his 85th birthday, but wants film producers to know that he's ready to act again!

He says:

"I'm looking for some kind of acting job I can do. I'm in excellent shape, and my spirits are high. They'd be getting a miracle!"

Curtis apparently has taken to painting and writing novels since his acting career died down.

We'd love to see him back on the silver screen - especially if he's as healthy as he says he is!

What do U think?? Would U like to see a Tony Curtis comeback??
