CHICAGO, Dec. 7 (UPI) -- Chicago Sun-Times film critic Roger Ebert confirmed on Twitter he is hospitalized after fracturing his hip.

His wife, Chaz, tweeted Thursday her 70-year-old spouse injured himself performing "tricky disco dance moves," but is "doing well, asking for a computer, will probably tweet."

Ebert later posted his own Twitter message confirming the fracture and reporting "no surgery needed."

The Pulitzer Prize-winning writer survived thyroid and jaw cancer but lost his voice as a result of the diseases and treatment.
