As an actress, Jamie Lee Curtis clearly gives it her all, but the same can be said when it comes to her role as a mother to her two wonderful kids.
The Halloween Kills star, now 62, and her husband, Christopher Guest, tied the knot in 1984, and they adopted two children — Annie and Thomas.
“Adoption was the only way for us to have a family,” Jamie once revealed to Pact’s Point of View newsletter. “People who adopt who are fertile have a more difficult decision than when you have no other option. It becomes the viable option for you. If you want to be a family, that’s how you’re going to be it.”
Jamie also revealed just how impactful being a mother truly was amid her rise to fame. “Motherhood has changed everything in my life,” she told the publication during the same interview. “When I began acting, I did not assume I would ever have a child. I made choices based on my life then … Now, I make every decision with my children in mind. I choose my roles carefully.”
The California native has several projects in the books that fans can expect to see in 2021 and 2022. Not only is she reprising her role as Laurie Strode in the next two Halloween films, Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends, but she’s also joining the cast of the video game-inspired movie Borderlands.
While she is a great mom to her two children, the Golden Globes winner also has two amazing parents: Janet Leigh and Tony Curtis, who were in the entertainment industry as well.
However, the couple split when Jamie was only 3. “My mother and stepfather [Robert Brandt] were married for 43 years, so I had a very good role model for that,” the Freaky Friday star explained at the ICG Publicists Awards in Los Angeles in March 2019.
Perhaps as a result, “I’m still married to my first husband, and we proudly have two beautiful children,” Jamie said at the event. “And my daughter, Annie, is going to be married this year, I’m just saying.”
“One of the great benefits of being the daughter of great film stars is I had the opportunity to watch them play the game,” the It’s Hard to be Five author added.
The A-lister clearly learned plenty from her folks and she is now handing it down to her children!
