The 63-year-old shares daughters Ruby and Annie with husband and screenwriter Christopher Guest.
Jamie Lee Curtis attended the October 11 premiere of Halloween Ends along with her daughters. The 63-year-old shares daughters Ruby and Annie with husband and screenwriter, Christopher Guest, reports HuffPost. The original Scream Queen posed for photos wearing a blood-colored off-the-shoulder, floor-length gown and held both of her daughters’ hands for the pictures. She shared one on Instagram, captioning it: My family. Proudest mother. Loving support.
The actress has been playing the character of Laurie Strode from 1978's Halloween to the new Halloween Ends. Curtis pointed out that the theme of family runs through the popular horror franchise. “My family is here. I have a family. Laurie had a family,” she told Fab TV at the premiere. “These movies are about families. Families have shared them from years and years. People who were teenagers are now showing their teenagers. It’s a beautiful linkage for me in every possible way.”

In an essay written exclusively for PEOPLE, she admitted that she was going to miss her character, Laurie Strode. She shared: For 44 years, I have tried to figure out why and how the confluence of a young girl (Laurie Strode) and a monster (Michael Myers) came together in the 13 films titled Halloween. And this month, as I play Laurie for the last time, in Halloween Ends, the final installment of the franchise, I am trying to figure out how to say goodbye to Laurie, who has taught me the meaning of the words "resilience," "loyalty," "perseverance" and "COURAGE." She added that despite life being so scary her character "taught me that life can also be beautiful, filled with love and art and life!"
The True Lies star goes on to say that being in the film franchise not only helped her advance her career but was also one of the reasons she ended up finding the love of her life. "Everything good in my life can be traced back to Laurie. I was with the writer of the original Halloween when I saw my husband of 37 years for the first time. Debra Hill and I were on my couch in West Hollywood in 1984. I opened up an issue of Rolling Stone, saw Christopher Guest in a Spinal Tap story, and said, 'I'm gonna marry that guy.' (I did, six months later.)" she explained, adding, "As I write this, I keep connecting the dots. If I hadn't been in Halloween, I wouldn't have met John Landis, the director who put me in Trading Places and showed the world I can be funny. That got me A Fish Called Wanda. That led to True Lies, which led to Freaky Friday. Dot connected, dot connected."
