Jamie Lee Curtis (born November 22, 1958) is an American actress and a writer of books for children. Although at the beginning of her career she was known as a "scream queen" because of her roles in many horror movies, Curtis has since worked in a lot of different movie genres. She has received an Emmy Award nomination and two Golden Globe Awards. Her 1998 book, Today I Feel Silly, and Other Moods That Make My Day, made the best-seller list in The New York Times.
Curtis is a daughter of actor Tony Curtis and actress Janet Leigh. Her paternal grandparents were from Hungary and were Jewish. She is married to actor Christopher Guest (Baron Haden-Guest) and, as the wife of a Baron, she has the title Baroness Haden-Guest and she could be called The Lady Haden-Guest, but she chooses not to use the title nor the style when in the United States.
