“There’s not one piece that I didn’t go out and buy or that I can’t tell you a story about.”

Jamie Lee Curtis and her husband Christopher Guest are millionaires. But the well-known pair has chosen to live in the same gorgeous house for the last thirty years.

Jamie Lee Curtis and Christopher Guest commemorated their 38th wedding anniversary in December 2022. They have lived in the same house for the duration of their marriage. Their children, Annie and Ruby, were raised in the lovely home.

Jamie Lee Curtis is a member of Hollywood royalty, deriving from Janet Leigh and Tony Curtis. Following in their footsteps, she achieved success as an actress by starring in well-known movies such as “Halloween” and “Freaky Friday.”

Over her career, Curtis has been honored for her outstanding acting ability. She had received a previous Golden Globe nomination for the sitcom “Anything But Love.” She grew up in Los Angeles, first with her parents and then as an adult.

One of the few well-known authors who has gained the respect of book enthusiasts and reviewers in addition to her performing career is Curtis. She first gained recognition as a children’s book author in 1993 with the publication of “When I Was Little: A Four-Year-Old’s Memoir of Her Youth.”

Books that her children influenced

Curtis credits actor-filmmaker Christopher Guest with influencing her two kids. Her second book, “Tell Me Again About The Night I Was Born,” was published in 1996. It was inspired by their adoption of Annie, their eldest child.

Two years later, she co-wrote “Today I Feel Silly and Other Moods That Make My Day,” a New York Times best-selling book. In 2006, she penned “Is There Really a Human Race?” with inspiration from her adopted daughter Ruby.


Curtis and her husband have been married since 1984. She is pleased to be spending the rest of her life with the man, and she has told him how much she appreciates him. On their thirty-sixth wedding anniversary, she wrote:

“I’m holding his hand.” both at the time and currently. The links in our emotional chain that supported us in both success and failure were our friends, families, and children.

In the past, Curtis has been open about the moment she knew she would wed Guest. When the actress saw his picture in a Rolling Stone article in 1984, just before “This Is Spinal Tap” debuted, it became official.

According to the actress, she was pointing to an image of Guest wearing a plaid shirt. Despite the fact that she had never seen him before, she told her buddy that she would marry the man when she pointed at him.

The very next day, Curtis took a gamble and gave Guest’s agent a call. She gave Guest his number and encouraged him to call her if he was interested.

She went on with her life, dating other guys, and sadly, he never called. After their breakup, she took a car to Hugo’s restaurant in West Hollywood. Gazing upwards, she observed Guest positioned three tables distant.

When Guest had finished waving, she waved back. He got up to leave, raised his hand, and shrugged. They went on their first date a few days after he gave her a call the very next day.

A few months later, Guest flew to New York City to record a full year of “Saturday Night Live.” At the time, they were completely smitten with one another, and they haven’t looked back.

Her first home was the 1920s Spanish Colonial Revival house that Curtis moved into in 1992. The actress said that at the time she believed she could make any location beautiful when she commented about the interior decor of the house, saying, “There’s not one piece that I didn’t go out and buy or that I can’t tell you a story about.”

It was not, however, for Guest. Curtis said that when house hunting, he would often make contemptuous facial expressions. However, he was unique for this specific property.

He started looking at the terracotta roof tiles and the eucalyptus trees surrounding the house, finally deciding they should buy it. Later on, he would state that he was happy with the park-like setting of the home.

The house was completed in 1929, but when the previous owners moved in, it had not been altered. They therefore asked Jan McFarland Cox for help in revitalizing the house, which is now airy and light.

There are numerous reminders of Curtis’s two kids throughout the house. She blended elements of an old traditional Mediterranean home with those of a more contemporary Zen style.

The house reflects Curtis and Guest’s conviction that blending the old with the new is a fundamental aspect of who they are. The children’s book author draws inspiration for her artwork from her household.

Before moving in, the pair renovated the house and collaborated on landscape design with architect Michael B. Lehrer and his wife, Mia. They began adding bedrooms for their children before renovating the master bedroom and bathroom.

Lehrer created a family area by opening up the kitchen after renovating the basement level; Curtis describes this space as “the emotional center of the house.” She requested that Cox create interiors that emphasized the home’s Mediterranean heritage.

Curtis and Guest are certain that they have made the house happier. One of the guests once said, “I think it’s like anything: it’s a work in progress.” This house will stay in existence.

It’s true that Curtis employs kitchen towels with motivational sayings hung on them, wall art, and hanging fabric dividers to keep the house vibrant. Their home’s light and open atmosphere is well complemented with timeless hardwood furnishings that uphold the Mediterranean design.

In addition to raising a loving family, Curtis and Guest had a deep appreciation for what it meant to be “home” together. The actress once wrote a song for her hubby, “I feel protected when I pull up and see that you are home.”

Despite their simplicity, she believes the song’s lyrics effectively convey what it’s like to be in a long-term marriage. She enjoys having the assurance that her partner is at home and that she is not alone.

Curtis and Guest, who are now empty nesters, find comfort in their time together. Their oldest daughter Annie is now married, and their daughter Ruby renounced her previous identity as Thomas.

Ruby, the second of Curtis and Guest’s two children, decided to transition at the age of 25. Curtis is thrilled for her kids because Ruby has taught her to reject the idea that gender is fixed.

In 2022, Ruby tied the knot in the same way as Annie had. Curtis proudly declared that she officiated her daughter’s wedding.
