Early life Curtis was born in Santa Monica, California, to actor Tony Curtis
Tony Curtis
and actress Janet Leigh. Her paternal grandparents were Hungarian Jewish immigrants.[1] Two of her maternal great-grandparents were Danish, while the rest of her mother's ancestry is German and Scots-Irish.[2] Curtis's parents divorced in 1962, after which her mother married Robert Brandt. Curtis has an older sister, Kelly Curtis, who is also an actress, and several half-siblings (all from her father's remarriages), Alexandra, Allegra, Benjamin, and Nicholas Curtis (who died in 1994 of a drug overdose).[3] Curtis attended Westlake School (now Harvard-Westlake School) in Los Angeles and Beverly Hills High School, and graduated from Choate Rosemary Hall. Returning to California in 1976, she attended the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California. She considered majoring in social work, but quit after one semester to pursue an acting career. Career Film 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". Her next film was the horror film The Fog, which was helmed by Halloween
Halloween
director John Carpenter. The film opened in February 1980 to mixed reviews but strong box office,[4] 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 film" genre. That year, Curtis also starred in Terror Train, which opened in October and was met with negative reviews akin to Prom Night. Both films performed moderately well at the box office.[5]

Emmy
Awards

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 had given negative reviews to all three of Curtis's 1980 films, said that Curtis "is to the current horror film glut what Christopher Lee
Christopher Lee
was to the last one-or Boris Karloff was in the 1930s".[6] Curtis later appeared in Halloween
Halloween
II, Halloween
Halloween
H20: 20 Years Later and Halloween: Resurrection, as well as giving an uncredited voice role in Halloween
Halloween
III: Season of the Witch. She has been confirmed to reprise her role as Laurie Strode
Laurie Strode
in Halloween. Her role in 1983's Trading Places
Trading Places
helped Curtis shed her horror queen image, and garnered her a BAFTA
BAFTA
award as best supporting actress.[7] 1988's A Fish Called Wanda
A Fish Called Wanda
achieved near cult status – while showcasing her as a comedic actress; she was nominated for a BAFTA
BAFTA
as best leading actress.[7] She won a Golden Globe
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
Golden Globe
Award for Best Actress - Motion Picture Musical or Comedy for this film.[8] In October 2006, Curtis told Access Hollywood
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
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
Kristen Bell
and Sigourney Weaver.[9] Television

Curtis made her television debut in an episode of Columbo, but 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. She appeared as nurse Lt. Duran in the short-lived TV series Operation Petticoat
Operation Petticoat
(1977), based on the 1959 film which starred her real-life father Tony Curtis. She starred in the 1981 TV film Death of a Centerfold: The Dorothy Stratten Story, playing the role of the eponymous doomed Playmate. She earned a Golden Globe
Golden Globe

During an interview, she openly said that if they could develop a story line, she would be more than happy to be on the show more.[10] 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.[11] Children's books Working with illustrator Laura Cornell, Curtis has written a number of children's books,[12] all published by HarperCollins

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.[15] Curtis refused to allow her invention to be marketed until companies started selling biodegradable diapers,[16] although the full statutory term of this patent expired February 20, 2007, and is now in the public domain.
