Jamie Lee Curtis booking

Category / genre:

Jamie Lee-Curtis is famous not just for her acting talents, but also as the daughter of screen legends
Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh. Having battled drink and drug demons and held the throne as queen of
horror films with ‘Halloween’, she has now established herself as a top-class comedy actress in films
like a ‘Fish Called Wanda’, action heroine and best-selling children’s author. The daughter of film stars
Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh, Jamie Lee Curtis launched her big screen career in ‘Halloween’ (1978), a
film inspired by her mother’s notorious hit ‘Psycho’ (1960). The film was a huge success and it
propelled Curtis into the limelight – for the first time out of her parent’s shadow. For the next few years,
she capitalised on the success of ‘Halloween’ and made more thrillers including ‘Terror Train’ (1980)
and cult-hit ‘Prom Night’ (1980). But despite the dollars rolling and acclaim escalating, Curtis was
aware that the scream queen tag couldn’t last forever and made the decision to break away from
blood-splattered horror films and began to accept roles in films which would challenge her acting
further. The risk worked, and critics showered applause for her part as 1983′s ‘Trading Places’, the
blockbuster comedy also starring Dan Aykroyd and Eddie Murphy.
As Curtis’s career soared, so did her private life, although well-publicised relationships with Adam Ant
and production designer J.Michael Riva, grandson of Marlene Dietrich, were long over before they
filled regular tabloid space. These relationship failures coincided with a spell of alcohol and cocaine
abuse, and it seemed Curtis may have been spiralling into meltdown. But light at the end of the tunnel
came when she met British actor Christopher Guest, who was filming the classic ‘mockumentary’, ‘This
is Spinal Tap’ (1983). Within four months, they were married and adopted two children, Annie and
Thomas. The marriage immediately spurred Curtis to clean up her act and she and her father – who
shared a cocaine addiction – were reunited after years of estrangement when they both weaned
themselves off their drug problems. Curtis went on to star in a string of successful films in the 1980s,
most notably in ‘A Fish Called Wanda’ and ‘My Girl’ (reuniting her with ‘Trading Places’ co-star,
Aykroyd), where she proved she was an actress of range and stature, and not just another “movie
star’s kid”. Taking a potentially humiliating role, as the unknowing wife of a secret agent, in the bigbudget Arnold Schwarzenegger adventure ‘True Lies’, Curtis delivered a sparkling performance, and,
in 1997, she was reunited with the cast of ‘A Fish Called Wanda’ for ‘Fierce Creatures’. And Curtis
received a surprising honour when Guest’s father died in 1996. He inherited a barony in the UK,
making her the Baroness, Lady Haden-Guest. With their time spent mostly in America, they couldn’t
take the role too seriously, but Curtis did accompany Guest when he first took his seat in the House Of
Lords. Now approaching 40, Curtis felt it was time to celebrate her landmark birthday by revisiting the
role that first propelled her to fame – Laurie Strode. Her plan was for a 20th anniversary Halloween
sequel and she contacted director Bob Weinstein, to bounce the idea off him. With his big-budget
fright-fest, ‘Scream’, about to be released, he was too busy so instead Curtis took the script to
Scream’s writer, Kevin Williamson. And so ‘Halloween H20: 20 Years later’ was released in 1998. With
Williamson able to incorporate some appropriately funny lines, Curtis even managed to persuade her
mother to appear as her secretary.
Directed by Steve Miner, who worked with Curtis on ‘Forever Young’ (1992), as well as the classic
‘House’ (1986) and a couple of ‘Friday The 13ths’, ‘H20′ was a huge smash and she had managed to
mirror the success of playing Laurie again, some 20 years later. Some may have thought they’d seen
the last of Halloween franchise but Curtis couldn’t resist the chance to say goodbye for the third time in
2002′s ‘Halloween: Resurrection’. Although she was was actually only contracted for a 30-second
cameo, she liked the screenplay so much that her part was radically extended, and she reportedly
received $3 million for her time – a far cry from the $8000 she’d earned in the 1978 original. The same
year as the film’s release, Curtis also made the headlines internationally when she appeared in More
magazine in her underwear, with no make-up or airbrushing. Her message was to make clear that the
seemingly perfect photos of models and actors projected in the media shouldn’t be idolised, and here
she was age 43, prepared to bare her imperfections – for which she was applauded.
