Jamie Lee Curtis Still Lives in Sweet Home She Bought 29 Years Ago – inside Her Family Mansion.

The fortune of Jamie Lee Curtis and her husband Christopher Guest is estimated at several millions. Despite this, the couple have lived in the same house for 29 years.

Last December, the couple celebrated their 37th wedding anniversary. Much of their life together has been spent within the walls of this magnificent home. Their children, Annie and Tom, also grew up in the house.

Jamie Lee Curtis is the heiress to a famous Hollywood couple. Her parents were actors Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh. Jamie continued the creative path of her parents and managed to build a successful film career. Among the popular films with her participation are such movies as “Halloween” and “Freaky Friday”.

Jamie Lee Curtis has received many awards for her acting talent. One of the highest honors for her talent was the Golden Globe, which Curtis received for her comedy material “Anything But Love.” The entire life of the famous actress took place in Los Angeles, where Jamie lived first with her parents and then on her own.

In addition to becoming famous as an actress, Curtis became a popular author who managed to wow critics and book connoisseurs with her abilities. Today, the name Jamie Lee Curtis is associated not only with cinema. Curtis has become a well-known author of children’s books. Her first book “When I was Little: A Four-Year-Old’s Memoir of Her Youth” was published in 1993.

The actress credits her two children with the actor-filmmaker Christopher Guest as a source of inspiration. When the couple adopted their eldest child, Annie, in 1996, Curtis’ second book, Tell Me Again About the Night I Was Born, saw the world.

Two years after adopting her firstborn, Jamie co-authored a new work, I Feel Stupid Today and Other Moods That Make My Day. The New York Times called the book a bestseller. And 2006 saw the release of a new book, “Does the Human Race Really Exist?” Jamie was inspired to write this book by her adopted daughter, Ruby.

Jamie Curtis and Christopher Guest were married in 1984. The actress has noted many times that she is grateful to Christopher for everything and is happy to spend the rest of her life with him. On their 36th wedding anniversary, Jamie confessed that they passed all those years holding hands. Children, family and friends brought them together and they became inseparable one.

The actress once talked about the day she realized Guest would become her husband. In 1984, the movie This Is Spinal Tap was released, in which Christopher played one of the leading roles. Rolling Stone magazine put a picture of the actor in its pages. And when Jamie saw Guest in the picture wearing a plaid shirt, she told her friend that she would marry this man, although at that time she saw him for the first time.

The very next day Curtis took the first step she called Guest’s agent. Leaving him her phone number, Jamie asked that Guest call her if he showed interest. But Christopher didn’t call, and Curtis began arranging a personal life with another man. When that relationship ended, one evening Jamie went to Hugo’s, a restaurant located in West Hollywood. There she happened to see Guest sitting not far from her table.

The man waved at her and she waved him back. As she left, Guest waved at her again. The next day he dialed her number and asked her out.

A few months later, Guest arrived in New York City to participate in the filming of Saturday Night Live. In those days, Christopher and Jamie were crazy about each other and never looked back.

In 1992, the actress first crossed the threshold of the house built in the 1920s. The dwelling was designed in the Spanish Colonial Revival style. At the same time, Curtis was sure that any place she and Christopher would have ended up living in she would have found beautiful.

When they were choosing a house, Jamie could tell by the look on Christopher’s face whether her husband liked it or not. And when they entered this particular house, the expression on Christopher’s face changed. He began to study with interest the terracotta-colored shingles, the eucalyptus trees that surrounded the house. According to Guest, what impressed him most was the parking lot outside the house.

The house that the couple soon moved into had not been renovated in years. Then they invited designer Ian McFarland Cox, entrusting him to create the home’s furnishings.

The house is still filled with traces of Curtis’ two children. The dwelling combines an old, traditional Mediterranean style with a modern Zen aesthetic.

In the combination of old and new, Jamie and Christopher see part of their essence. In addition, Curtis, as an author of children’s books, has repeatedly drawn inspiration from her home.

Architect Michael B. Lehrer and his wife, Mia, were involved in renovating the star couple’s home, and they also landscaped the home. Curtis and Guest furnished the bedrooms for their children first, followed by the master bedroom and bathroom.

Next, the architect laid out the lower level of the house. The kitchen space included the family room, which Jamie called “the emotional center of the house.” Curtis’ main wish was for Ian Cox to create a setting that would accentuate the home’s Mediterranean history.

The star couple is confident they’ve succeeded in making the home a happy place. According to Guest, the work in the house doesn’t stop, and it will always live on.

Indeed, Curtis fills the home with life through kind words on kitchen towels, through fabric partitions and wall art. Thanks to the Mediterranean-inspired wooden pieces, the house has a spirit of lightness and spaciousness.

The couple say their home was made for love, and they understand the real meaning of “home” because of each other. Jamie even dedicated a song to her husband, in which she said she felt safe when she drove up to the house and saw her partner there.

The lyrics may sound corny, but to Jamie, they captured the essence of a long marriage. She is not afraid of anything when Guest is around.

Today, when the house is empty, the couple comforts each other in their time together. Their oldest daughter Annie is married and happy in her family, and their second daughter changed her name from Thomas to Ruby some time ago.

At the age of 25, Curtis and Guest’s second child decided to have a sex change. The actress is happy for her children, and believes that thanks to Ruby she was able to realize and accept the idea that gender is not fixed.

Just like her sister, Ruby plans to start a family with her fiancé soon. Jamie Curtis revealed that she will hold her daughter’s wedding ceremony this year.
