Jamie Lee Curtis Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Jamie Lee Curtis was born on 22 November 1958, in Santa Monica, California USA of Hungarian-Jewish (father) and Danish (mother) descent, and is an actress, writer, voice actor and author also known as Lady Haden-Guest.  Jamie Lee is the daughter of famous film stars Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh, but has made herself known without help through her performances in several notable movies during a career spread over almost 40 years.

So how rich is Jamie Lee Curtis? Jamie Lee’s net worth is estimated by sources to be $35 million, most of her wealth having been accumulated through her acting career, and as an author.

Jamie Lee Curtis Net Worth $35 Million

Jamie Lee actually studied at the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California majoring in social work, but dropped out to pursue her dream of becoming an actress, unsurprising given her parentage. Jamie Lee Curtis has proved to herself and the world’s film industry, that success she achieved, has not been because was is a daughter of film stars, but because she is good actress. When she started to appear in movies, Curtis became known as the “scream queen”, because of her roles in several horror movies like “Halloween”(1978), “The Fog”, “Prom Night”, and “Terror Train”(all 1980), in some of them she was acting with her mother, Janet Leigh.

However, The Queen of Screams eventually achieved her fame and wealth because of acting through different styles roles and movies, and besides that she has been a very active person. Jamie Lee has quite a long list of starring movies, which have helped her to gain various BAFTA and Golden Globe awards. Her most successful roles have been in “Trading Places” (1983), also a comic appearance in “A Fish Called Wanda”(1988), the romantic comedy “My Girl”(1991), “True Lies”(1994) in which she is playing the wife of secret agent Arnold Schwarzenegger, also a strong character in “Blue Steel”(1990). Jamie Lee’s most recent films have been Veronica Mars(2014) and Spare Parts(2015): all her roles have added steadily to her net worth, as have her appearances in over 20 TV films and shows.

Jamie Lee Curtis is the author of children`s books too, and in 1988 Jamie Lee`s book “Today I Feel Silly, and Other Moods That Make My Day”, made the best seller list in The New York Times. Some books Curtis co-authored with Laura Cornell, and all have contributed to her net worth.

Additionally, from time-to-time Jamie Lee has appeared in cosmetic advertisements, and currently Curtis is a blogger for the online newspaper, The Huffington Post. In 1987 she was the inventor of a diaper with special moisture poof pockets, which she categorically refused to market until companies started to sell biodegradable diapers. Again, both projects have benefited Jamie Lee Curtis’ net worth.

In her personal life, Jamie Lee married actor Christopher Guest in 1984, and the couple adopted two children Annie and Thomas. After Christopher`s father died, he became Baron Haden-Guest, which automatically elevated Jamie to the title of Lady Haden-Guest. The couple lives in a big house valued over $4 million!

For the moment Jamie Lee Curtis has taken a break from her acting career, and is concentrating more on her charity work. The actress has made a successful career, with ups and downs of course, but therefore she has stayed honest to herself all the time, and hasn’t worried too much about going out without make up!

#Quote
1 Halloween: Resurrection (2002) was a joke.
2 [on The Fog (1980)] I am surprised that it has such popularity because I just don't think it's that good a film.
3 [giving the commencement address to graduating students of New York Film Academy's Los Angeles campus on June 8, 2013] This isn't about a show. It's about truth and integrity and honesty and communication, bravery and risk, and adjectives that should make you get out bed in the morning, excited to be what it is you choose to be.
4 Everything good in my life has happened when I wasn't expecting it.
5 I'm not sure what fame is for if it isn't to focus on charitable work.
6 For me, I just show up and do what I do. And for me it has to be real -- anything I do, I don't care what it is. On Halloween (1978), I can remember, John Carpenter's first and only real direction to me was, "I want people to believe this is a real person." All I care about is trying to make anything real -- and then because I'm brave I'll try anything.
7 [on her father Tony Curtis] He was not a father; he was not interested in being a father - and this is not a slam against him - he did what he had to do from a financial standpoint, which was honorable of him to do, but he wasn't an involved father. Therefore, I look at him much more from the perspective of being a fan of him. I was more of a fan of his work, of his spirit, of his joie de vivre (joy of living)... My mother was never a diva, my father was bigger than life, who lived in Vegas! There was no bond, not at all. Except for the fact that I inherited genetically a part of him.
8 [on Tony Curtis] I'm proud to be his daughter.
9 [Speaking at the funeral of her father Tony Curtis] All of us got something from him. I, of course, got his desperate need for attention.
10 [on the paparazzi] It's part of my job, but it's one thing if you take a picture of me head to toe, it's another thing when they focus in on your nose or something and that's all they're shooting because they're doing a story about nose jobs. Then you go, 'why did I allow that to be a part of my life?'
11 [on the death of Michael Jackson] The pain he suffered was from his birth, from his being and becoming the commodity that then made him the King of Pop, he was in the spotlight since childhood.
12 [on Eddie Murphy] Despite all his success, Eddie acts like he's 22 years old. His life is cars and girls, girls and cars. More cars. More girls.
13 [on Tony Curtis] Because I didn't really have a relationship with him, he couldn't let me down. I just happened to be one of the last people who hadn't been disappointed too many times. For years, I didn't know who Tony Curtis was as much as other people told me who he was.
14 I don't expect to hear from him on my birthday or Christmas. I see him when I see him. He's like a ghost - on her father, Tony Curtis.
15 I'm not an actor anymore. I really don't imagine I'll do that again. I'm just focused on my family and just can't imagine anything that's going to pull me away from them right now.
16 About Madonna: "Holiday" came on the radio the other day and I remember where I was the first time I heard it: in West L.A. on my way to aerobics class. (In Style magazine, September 2006).
17 The more I like me, the less I want to pretend to be other people. Family Circle, 4-18-06.
18 My life is so filled that for me to accept acting work now means that I have to basically let somebody else do the job that I want to do, which is raise my children. It's not that I'm retired, it's just that I no longer accept acting work.
19 In some circles, my Caesar salad is more famous than my body.
20 Believe me, none of it works. - on cosmetic surgery.
21 When asked if she regretted making any films - Easy. There's a piece of shit called Virus (1999) which I made because another movie that I was supposed to do fell through. It was a bad choice and the movie is a piece of shit. The runner up is a movie called Grandview, U.S.A. (1984), which is this benign but still bad coming of age movie, which is just bad. I will never, ever see those films again. They are laughable, ludicrous movies and I'm bad in them. They're nasty.
22 When I did Sesame Street (1969), Elmo was not the worldwide phenomenon he is now. I understood Elmo was special, and I said that the only way I would do Sesame Street was with Elmo. Kevin Clash, the young man who did the voice for him, was a very sweet guy and I predicted Elmo's meteoric rise to fame way in advance. I am a trendsetter without knowing it. Two years later the Elmo craze began, but I was ahead of the curve.
23 I'm Laurie Strode's guardian angel.
24 I thought, while they're up and firm [her breasts], why not shoot them once or twice. - on screen nudity.
25 "I believe people are entitled to a private life. I'm not sure where it's written that because you're in the public eye you are required to expose your private business, with anybody. It is nobody's business, and it's interesting because obviously in today's marketplace people don't abide by that. There are no boundaries that people won't cross... We're in a bit of a "Wild West" thing with media, and, I think, it's just kind of like no holds barred - the Internet. You know, there are no criteria on the Internet... I've chosen a public life to express myself, not to tell what I do with my husband in bed, not to do, to talk about my parents and my family life. And I just think it's wrong, and obviously it's an insatiable appetite that people have for gossip and innuendo and things that are nobody's business. And there's a term that they use in this called "legitimate public concern". What is legitimate public concern? If an elected official has an illness, that's legitimate public concern because they're our president or elected official. We, we, we need to know that they're healthy because we want them to live a long life and protect, you know, the Constitution... but in the marketplace, in the world, I don't believe it's anybody's concern. And that's what I think." --comments made on The View, September 19, 2000.
