Jamie Lee Curtis has been a well-known leading woman in Hollywood ever since she made her debut in the horror picture “Halloween” in 1978. The film was her first role in the film industry. She is also a member of the royal family of Hollywood, since both of her parents, Janet Leigh and Tony Curtis, were prominent actors during the Golden Era of Hollywood. Throughout the course of her career, Curtis has been honored with a number of accolades, including a Golden Globe Award and a BAFTA, as well as a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Yet even apart from her successful professional career, she has also had good fortune in her personal life. The actress is married to the filmmaker Christopher Guest, and the couple has two adopted children together, both of whom have revealed that they identify as transgender: Annie and Ruby Guest. Curtis disclosed this information in the August/September 2021 edition of AARP Magazine, and she said that before to making the announcement, she had gotten permission from Ruby.

About thirty years ago, when Jamie Lee Curtis was just 25 years old, she was browsing through Rolling Stone magazine when she came upon a picture of Christopher Guest, which she subsequently wrote about in O magazine. This was the beginning of the couple’s relationship. Curtis informed her companion that she would marry that guy while pointing to his portrait in a feature article about his film “This Is Spinal Tap.” The article was about the actor’s career.

To tell you the truth, it wasn’t exactly a piece of cake. The actress initiated the conversation by calling Guest’s agency and leaving her information, but she did not get a response. She greeted me with Hi! In 2021:

“I believe that putting oneself in the path of love is quite important. Hey, I tried to get in touch with his representative. I left my number. I should mention that he did not call me.

Nevertheless, not long after that, they stumbled into one other at a restaurant in Los Angeles, and things began to move forward from that point on. In an article by O Magazine, Curtis stated:

“When I was taking a seat at Hugo’s, I happened to look up and saw that I was gazing directly at Chris, who was seated three tables away. He seemed to be indicating to me via his wave that “I’m the man you called.” I responded by waving and said, “I’m the lady who phoned you.” Once a few minutes had passed, he stood up and prepared to go. At a distance of twenty feet, he shrugged his shoulders and raised his hand as if to say, “I’ll see ya,” and then continued to stand there. When he was leaving, I glanced down at the food on my plate.

Luckily, Guest phoned her at that moment, and a few days later, the two of them went on their very first date together. They started dating the next month, and before the end of that month, he had popped the question. After going on their first date little over four months earlier, the pair tied the knot on December 18th, 1984. After over 39 years of being together, the Hollywood couple has managed to keep their love strong despite the ups and downs that come with being famous.

Curtis discussed her relationship with Guest, with whom she shares the motherhood of Ruby and Annie, in the August/September 2021 edition of the AARP profile magazine. The two of them are the parents of the couple’s two children. According to what she explained in an interview that took place in 2015, the pair were married exactly five months after she spotted a picture of Guest in a magazine.

After seeing Chris’s photo in Rolling Stone for five months, I decided to propose to him and get married. Curtis added, “I stated out loud to my friend, the late, great Debra Hill, ‘Oh, I’m going to marry that man.'”

She continued by saying, “But the fact of the issue is that my life depended on a few of seconds that I didn’t see coming.” Curtis carried on saying:

“There was a photograph of Chris hanging out with Michael McKean and Harry Shearer from ‘Spinal Tap,’ but they were just being themselves in the photo. Well, I know him, and he works for your agency, Debra said. “He’s a good guy.” I made many attempts to cast him in a film. So, I contacted the agent and left my number, but Chris did not call me back. And then I saw him at the restaurant,” she said.

She elaborated on the fact that her capacity for love has not diminished as she approaches her senior years in an interview she gave to AARP. Even further, she goes so far as to characterize herself as “a profound, serious romantic.”

And considering the fact that Curtis penned Guest a song for their 35th wedding anniversary with the endearing words “I feel comfortable when I pull up and see that you are home,” it seems as if these two are really in love with one another.

It demonstrates that Curtis and Guest have a unique and lovely relationship that is not something that can be seen very frequently in the Hollywood industry.

During an interview with Today in 2015, Curtis shared some wonderful advice on how to have a marriage that lasts a long time. She said:

“Don’t get divorced. It’s a really interesting topic to look into. If I were to write a book on marriage, the title would be “Don’t Leave.”

She later gave an additional interview to Today, in which she discussed the significance of putting oneself out there in the search for love and seizing chances when they are presented to one. In her words:

What we do in those few seconds will eventually decide the rest of our lives, therefore it’s important to make the most of them. Our lives do depend on a few of seconds that we don’t see coming.

She pondered, “So the reality of the matter is, life depended for me on a handful seconds that I didn’t see coming,” and then went on to explain her thought. The actress gave more insight into her words of wisdom in an interview with Good Housekeeping, in which she said:

“Don’t leave. There’s a saying that goes, “Stay on the bus; the landscape will change,” and it’s often used as a recovery slogan. Stay on the bus even if you believe you’re having a terrible week; one of these days, you’ll peek out the window, and it’ll be lovely… even though you think you’re having a dreadful week. I’m not a hopeless romantic by any means. I’m a realist. He has my respect. And I simply don’t leave.”

Curtis has said that he and Guest are “opposites” and that they both have different hobbies, but in the end, it has been their love for one another that has helped them get through this difficult time. She said to AARP,

“That’s the secret to a happy marriage. It’s the peace of mind that comes from realizing his vehicle is safely tucked away in the garage, that I’m not in this situation by myself, and that he’s present.

According to what Guest told The Guardian, the couple even has a nicely framed copy of the Rolling Stone image hanging in their home as a tribute to their early days together. In an article by O Magazine, Curtis stated:

“Chris and I have a fantastic life, but it’s also difficult and full of flaws. And a marriage that is extremely genuine. When I first saw his image, for some reason I had the impression that we could communicate well with one another. I believe there was a tiny something that only I know that was concealed in that smile.
