Jamie Lee Curtis and Christopher Guest have been married for 38 years and it is rather fascinating to know that it all started with the actress one day flipping through Rolling Stone magazine and finding Guest's picture. She told her friend, "I'm going to marry that man," according to Oprah.com. Curtis's friend responded to her by saying that it was a picture of "Chris Guest." She added that "he's in a very funny new movie called This is Spinal Tap. I know his agent." The next day, Curtis called the agent and gave her number, and told him to have Chris call her if he was interested. She waited but he never called.

Curtis moved on in life and dated another man but that also didn't work out. After dropping him to the airport which she knew was the final goodbye, she went straight to a restaurant called Hugo's in West Hollywood to have dinner with her friends. To her surprise, Guest was sitting just three tables away. He waved to her which meant, "I'm the guy you called." She waved back and a few minutes later, he left. The next day, her phone rang and it was Guest. They had their first date just four days later on July 2, 1984.
