Many know Jamie Lee Curtis, 64, from her iconic role as Laurie Strode in the hit movie franchise Halloween, in which she has starred since 1978. Some of her other famous projects include 1994’s True Lies, 2003’s Freaky Friday (in which she played Tess Coleman, who was the mom of Lindsay Lohan‘s character), 2004’s Christmas with the Kranks, and many more. In 2023, Jamie won her first Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role as Deirdre Beaubeirdre in Everything Everywhere All at Once. She took the moment to thank everyone who has supported her career, including her fans who have watched her movies for decades past.
“I know it looks like I’m standing up here by myself, but I’m not, I am hundreds of people,” she said as tears welled up in her eyes. “We just won an Oscar together!” Someone who has supported her throughout her career is her husband, Christopher Guest, to whom she had been married for nearly 40 years! Here is everything to know about him, their marriage, and their family.
Who Is Christopher Guest?
Christopher Haden-Guest, 74=5, was born on February 5, 1948 to parents Jean Pauline Hindes and Peter Haden-Guest. The actor, writer, director, and musician was born into British nobility, as the 5th Baron Haden-Guest. But he no longer carries the title due to “the House of Lords Act of 1999 which removed the right of most hereditary seats,” according to The US Sun.
He starred in the 1984 film, This Is Spinal Tap, alongside actors Rob Reiner, Michael McKean, and Fran Drescher. Some of the other movies he worked on include Best in Show, A Mighty Wind, For Your Consideration, and more. He also worked with some other Hollywood legends including Eugene Levy, Jennifer Coolidge, Catherine O’Hara, and others.
How Long Have They Been Married?
Their relationship began when Jamie reportedly saw Christopher in Rolling Stone magazine, according to The US Sun. It was then that she told her pal, Debra Hill that she was “going to marry that man.” Debra had contact with Christopher’s agent and attempted to link up the two, but sadly Chris never called. Later Jamie bumped into Chris a restaurant in West Hollywood, and he called her the next day. Two months later the couple was engaged, and eventually got married in 1984.
In 2018, the beauty told Good Housekeeping the secret to her long marriage. “Don’t leave. There’s a recovery phrase that says, ‘Stay on the bus…the scenery will change.’ You think you’re having a bad week, but stay on the bus, because one of these days you’ll look out the window and it’ll be beautiful. I think it can apply to almost anything where you feel unhappy in that moment. I’m not a wild romantic. I’m a realist. I respect him. And I just don’t leave.”
Do Jamie & Chris Have Kids?
After two years of marriage, Jamie and Christopher decided to expand their family. Born in Dec. 1986, Annie Guest, 36, is the eldest daughter of the celebrity duo. Although Annie is also an actress, she only has one credit on her IMDb page, which is for the movie For Your Consideration.
Their second child, Ruby Guest, 26, was born a decade later in March 1996. And in July 2021 the 63-year-old told AARP that Ruby had come out as transgender. She said that both she and Christopher “have watched in wonder and pride as our son became our daughter Ruby. And she and her fiancé will get married next year at a wedding that I will officiate.” Ruby does not work in Hollywood, but rather is a computer gaming editor. Although is not a grandma yet, Jamie is positive that one day she will be. “Not yet, but I do hope to,” she told the outlet at the time.
