Jamie Lee Curtis Married, Lesbian, Children, Family

American actress Jamie Lee Curtis needs no introduction at all. Her notable role in the classic movie Halloween heavily contributed to her success, and she ended up receiving the informal title "Scream Queen."

If viewers dig a bit deeper into the personal life of the actress, it will mostly come as a surprise. And, the surprise is both pleasant and mysterious too. While you'll come across a long list of failed relationships in many celebrities' dating life, Jamie's love life is strange to all these nasty elements.

It appears that she has found a formula for a long-lived marriage. Let's take a look at the True Life star's married life along with her net worth and more.

Marriage, Husband, Children

Jamie is unlike anyone as she fell in love with a man and even to marry him after she first saw his picture. Back in May 1984, she was with her friend Debra Hill when she got the glimpse of singer Christopher Guest on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. In her own words, Jamie recalled the moment, 

"I looked at the man on the right, wearing a plaid shirt and a waggish smirk. I'd never seen him before, but I pointed at him. I'm going to marry that man,' I said to my friend."

But it wasn't that easy to get Christopher's attention. First, she gave him her number as he too worked under the same agency as Jamie. But, he didn't call her at all. Coincidentally, she met him again after a month, at the night of her breakup with then-boyfriend.

Thankfully, he called her the next day, and the two started dating. Likewise, everything happened as Jamie had wanted as their love became mutual. And, on 18th December 1984, the pair got married at director Rob Reiner's house.
