I'm a 38 year old cinephile... and I'm just learning NOW that her father was Tony Curtis. Jesus, I'm an idiot. I always knew her mother was Janet Leigh and thought, yelp thats the end of that ::facepalm::

38 in two months, also a lifelong lover of movies, also knew her mom was Janet Leigh... also just learning Tony Curtis was her father. We are two very selectively oblivious people lmfao

WTH, I'm also 38, avid movie fan and I too didn't know this. So do we, like, start a club or something? How does this work?

"Jamie Lee CURTIS"

¯\_( ͡❛ ͜ʖ ͡❛)_/¯

She looks identical to her dad too. I’m one of those weirdos that has to Wikipedia all the actors/actresses in a movie while I’m watching, so I learned this a while ago. But pretty cool she doesn’t mention it. I like her. Halloween is one of my favorite films.

Just said something similar to my wife. One of my favorite movies, btw.

It's hilarious. I had watched it several times on TV and then got to see it on the big screen a couple of years back. The theater was packed -- literally no seats left.

I just saw this too and went. What?!? And now I feel dumb as hell. Sigh.

That might be due to the fact that Tony Curtis disappeared from her life after her parents divorced in 1962. Jamie Lee was raised by her mother and her stepfather, stockbroker Robert Brandt.

This is such a good movie. One of my all-time favourites. Marilyn was glorious in it.

One of my favorite TV moments. She got some award and took him as her +1. She thanked him during the speech and did an imitation of him in a big accent "I love you Spartacus, like a brotha!" And they showed his face doing all the emotions. So sweet!


lowercase_underscore t1_itpm3up wrote

That sounds adorable, any idea where to find it?


Columbus43219 t1_itpvapg wrote

I tried... no luck. He was still in good health, and she's gotten a lot of awards.


lowercase_underscore t1_itpztsv wrote

Thank you so much for trying, that was very nice of you!

She has gotten a lot of awards, and they had an interesting dynamic.

Have an lovely day, you're a great person so take care of you!

You mean the Baroness Haden-Guest on set visiting her father, I presume...

Also, I genuinely didn't know she was Tony Curtis's kid until a few moments ago.


Hopefulkitty t1_itqafdw wrote

Janet Leighs and Tony Curtis' daughter, married to Sir Christopher Guest, who she requested a date with through their managers because she thought he was funny. She's gotta have a million stories, and seems like a really nice lady.


Modus_Opp t1_itqkxyk wrote

I only know that she's a massive WOW fan I think and cos plays fairly often..

Honestly she's one of those celebs I'd be super happy to meet.

Thanks so much for share this as I have been looking for that movie title, ever since I watch a clip from it and noticed Tony was the guy from the clip.

She looked a bit mannish back then, IMHO


JCazzz t1_itppai3 wrote

She was boy at birth but it was changed to girl for some reason. I never learned why and she doesn’t discuss it. She’s still one of my favorites.


StartingToLoveIMSA t1_itpsz4a wrote

uh, what?


JCazzz t1_itptcbn wrote

Yes. Verified via birth records and the birth announcement from the papers. Hospital said they welcomed a son and newspaper posted article with then and their son. So many rumors why they changed it but it all worked out and she was able to marry a British Baron and adopt children and have successful career.

Wouldn't you, too, if you were hiding from the Chicago mob trying to kill you for being the only civilian eyewitnesses to the St. Valentine's Day massacre?

Does it get you going? Watch Tootsie if you like that kinda stuff.


Reatona t1_ito0k31 wrote

Tootsie is really a good comedy-drama, with a great cast. I don't know what "kinda stuff" you're thinking of, it's not a porn movie.
