Curtis endorsed Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election; she has since been a vocal critic of President Donald Trump.
She is a fan of World of Warcraft, and has attended Comic-Con and BlizzCon incognito. She once helped her son Thomas create a cosplay of blood elf character Kael’thas Sunstrider, which he entered into a BlizzCon costume contest. Together they also got the chance to attend the premiere of the Warcraft film on June 6, 2016, at The Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.
From 2015 to 2016, Curtis had a lead role on the Fox television series Scream Queens, which aired for two seasons.
She is close friends with actress Sigourney Weaver, but in a 2015 interview said she has never watched Weaver’s film Alien in its entirety because she was too scared by it.
Curtis had a similar function in both films—the main character whose friends are murdered and is practically the only protagonist to survive. Film critic Roger Ebert, who gave negative reviews to all three of Curtis’s 1980 films, said that Curtis “is to the current horror film glut what Christopher Lee was to the last one—or Boris Karloff was in the 1930s.” Curtis has returned to the Halloween series five times, playing Laurie Strode again in the sequels Halloween II (1981), Halloween H20: 20 Years Later (1998), Halloween: Resurrection (2002), and Halloween (2018), and having an uncredited voice role in Halloween III: Season of the Witch (1982).
In 2012, she appeared in 5 episodes of the television series NCIS, playing the role of Dr. Samantha Ryan, a potential romantic interest of Special Agent Gibbs (Mark Harmon). It was hinted that her role might be a recurring one. During an interview, she said that if they could develop a storyline, she would be more than happy to be on the show more. It was at least the second time Harmon has worked with Curtis; he played her character’s fiancé and later husband in the 2003 remake of Freaky Friday.
In March 2012, Curtis was featured with Martin Sheen and Brad Pitt in a performance of Dustin Lance Black’s play 8—a staged reenactment of the federal trial that overturned California’s Prop 8 ban on same-sex marriage—as Sandy Stier. The production was held at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre and broadcast on YouTube to raise money for the American Foundation for Equal Rights. In June 2016, the Human Rights Campaign released a video in tribute to the victims of the 2016 Orlando gay nightclub shooting; in the video, Curtis and others told the stories of the people killed there.
Curtis plays a leadership role for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and supported the 2011 opening of a new inpatient facility for the organization.
During California’s 2008 general election, Curtis appeared in the “Yes on Prop 3” television advertisements.
In 1987, Curtis filed a US patent application that subsequently issued as Patent No. 4,753,647. This is a modification of a diaper with a moisture-proof pocket containing wipes that can be taken out and used with one hand. Curtis refused to allow her invention to be marketed until companies started selling biodegradable diapers. The full statutory term of this patent expired February 20, 2007, and it is now in the public domain. She filed a second US patent application related to disposable diapers in 2016 which issued as US Patent 9,827,151 on November 28, 2017, and will expire on September 7, 2036.
In October 2006, Curtis told Access Hollywood that she had closed the book on her acting career to focus on her family. She returned to acting after being cast in June 2007 in Disney’s live-action-animated film Beverly Hills Chihuahua, co-starring opposite Piper Perabo as one of three live-action characters in the film. She also starred in the 2010 comedy film You Again, opposite Kristen Bell and Sigourney Weaver.
Curtis was guest of honor at the 11th annual gala and fundraiser in 2003 for Women in Recovery, a Venice, California-based non-profit organization offering a live-in, twelve-step program of rehabilitation for women in need. Past honorees of this organization include Sir Anthony Hopkins and Dame Angela Lansbury. Curtis is also involved in the work of the Children Affected by AIDS Foundation, serving as the annual host for the organization’s “Dream Halloween” event in Los Angeles, launched every year in October.
Curtis is a recovering alcoholic, and was once addicted to painkillers that she began using after a routine cosmetic surgical procedure. She became sober from opiates in 1999 after reading and relating to Tom Chiarella’s account of addiction; and maintains that recovery is the greatest achievement of her life.
Curtis is the daughter of Janet Leigh and Tony Curtis. She is married to Christopher Guest, with whom she has two adopted children. She has written numerous children’s books, with her 1998 release Today I Feel Silly, and Other Moods That Make My Day making The New York Times’ best-seller list. She is also a frequent blogger for The Huffington Post. Curtis received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1998.
When her father-in-law died on April 8, 1996, her husband became the 5th Baron Haden-Guest, making her a baroness with the style The Right Honourable The Lady Haden-Guest, according to the rules of British peerage. She rejects the idea of using this title, saying, “It has nothing to do with me”.
Curtis was born in Santa Monica, California, to actor Tony Curtis and actress Janet Leigh. Her father was Jewish, the son of Hungarian-Jewish immigrants. Two of her maternal great-grandparents were Danish, while the rest of her mother’s ancestry is German and Scots-Irish. Curtis has an older sister, Kelly Curtis, who is also an actress, and several half-siblings (all from her father’s remarriages): Alexandra, actress Allegra Curtis, Benjamin, and Nicholas Curtis (who died in 1994 of a drug overdose). Curtis’s parents divorced in 1962. After the divorce, she stated her father was “not around” and that he was “not interested in being a father.”
Beginning in 1990, Curtis and her father, Tony, took a renewed interest in their family’s Hungarian Jewish heritage, and helped finance the rebuilding of the “Great Synagogue” in Budapest, Hungary. The largest synagogue in Europe today, it was originally built in 1859 and suffered damage during World War II.
Curtis received a Golden Globe and a People’s Choice Award for her portrayal of Hannah Miller on the ABC sitcom Anything But Love (1989–1992). She earned a Primetime Emmy Award nomination for her work in the television film Nicholas’ Gift (1998). She also starred as Cathy Munsch on the Fox horror comedy series Scream Queens (2015–2016), for which she earned her seventh Golden Globe nomination.
Curtis married Christopher Guest on December 18, 1984. She saw a picture of him from the movie This Is Spinal Tap in Rolling Stone and told her friend Debra Hill, “Oh, I’m going to marry that guy”, actually marrying him five months later. The couple have two adopted children (Annie, b. 1986; Thomas b. 1996). Curtis is actor Jake Gyllenhaal’s godmother.
Curtis’ film work spans many genres, including the cult comedies Trading Places (1983), for which she received a BAFTA for Best Supporting Actress, and A Fish Called Wanda (1988), for which she earned a BAFTA nomination for Best Actress. She won a Golden Globe, an American Comedy Award, and a Saturn Award for playing the starring role of Helen Tasker in James Cameron’s action comedy film True Lies (1994). Curtis’ other major films include Blue Steel (1990), My Girl (1991), Forever Young (1992), The Tailor of Panama (2001), Freaky Friday (2003), Beverly Hills Chihuahua (2008), You Again (2010), Veronica Mars (2014), and Knives Out (2019).
Her role in 1983’s Trading Places helped Curtis shed her horror queen image, and garnered her a BAFTA award as best supporting actress. 1988’s A Fish Called Wanda achieved near cult status while showcasing her as a comedic actress; she was nominated for a BAFTA as best leading actress. She won a Golden Globe for her work in 1994’s True Lies. Her film roles also include Disney’s Freaky Friday (2003), opposite Lindsay Lohan, filmed at Palisades High School in Pacific Palisades, California, near where Curtis and Guest live with their children. She was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy for this film.
She starred in the 1981 TV film Death of a Centerfold: The Dorothy Stratten Story, playing the eponymous doomed Playmate. She earned a Golden Globe nomination for her work in TNT’s adaptation of the Wendy Wasserstein play The Heidi Chronicles. Her first starring TV role was opposite Richard Lewis in the situation comedy Anything But Love, which ran for four seasons from 1989 through 1992. Her performance as Hannah Miller received both a Golden Globe and People’s Choice Award. More recently, Curtis starred in the CBS television movie Nicholas’ Gift, for which she received an Emmy nomination. Curtis also appeared in an early episode of The Drew Carey Show.
Her next film was The Fog, which was helmed by Halloween director John Carpenter. The horror film opened in February 1980 to mixed reviews but strong box office, starting Curtis as a horror film starlet. Her next film, Prom Night, was a low-budget Canadian slasher film released in July 1980. The film, for which she earned a Genie Award nomination for Best Performance by a Foreign Actress, was similar in style to Halloween, yet received negative reviews which marked it as a disposable entry in the then-popular slasher genre. That year, Curtis also starred in Terror Train, which opened in October and met with negative reviews akin to Prom Night. Both films performed moderately well at the box office.
Curtis’s film debut occurred in the 1978 horror film Halloween, in which she played the role of Laurie Strode. The film was a major success and was considered the highest-grossing independent film of its time, earning accolades as a classic horror film. Curtis was subsequently cast in several horror films, garnering her the title “scream queen”.
Curtis made her television debut in an episode of Columbo, and guest-starred on several shows, including Charlie’s Angels and the science fiction series Buck Rogers in the 25th Century She appeared as nurse Lt. Duran in the short-lived TV series Operation Petticoat (1977), based on the 1959 film that starred her father, Tony Curtis.

Returning to California in 1976, she attended her mother’s alma mater, the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California, and studied law. She dropped out after one semester to pursue an acting career.
