She has a sister named Kelly Curtis, who is also an actress. Jamie Lee Curtis has compiled a body of work which covers every type of genre, from comedy to drama to horror.

She married the actor Christopher Guest in 1984, and became known as Lady Haden-Guest when her husband inherited the title of Baron Haden-Guest in 1996. Curtis and Guest have two adopted children, Annie and Thomas.
