Movie legend Tony Curtis has been hospitalized in Las Vegas after suffering an asthma attack at an art exhibition. The 85-year-old "Some Like It Hot" star was showing his paintings in Henderson, Nevada last week when he was taken ill.

Sources tell TMZ Curtis has not yet been released from hospital, but he's in a stable condition. The actor recently revealed he's keen to return to the big screen three years after fighting for his life during a near-fatal battle with pneumonia.

Tony Curtis now uses a wheelchair and can only walk short distances. Curtis married five times and once had an affair with actress Marilyn Monroe. He has six children, including actresses Jaime Lee and Kelly Curtis. His son Nicholas died of a heroin overdose in 1994 when he was just 23.

    Had the pleasure of meeting Tony Curtis. What a true gentleman. I told him that I had been in love with him since I saw him in The Great Race, with Natalie Woods and Jack Lemmon. I asked him to sign the sheet music from the movie and he signed " A Pleasure at last" , Tony Curtis. Best wishes for a fast recovery Tony.
