Jamie Lee Curtis, a precocious kid? The actress is honest about the benefits of being the daughter of famous parents
I’ve been a professional actress since I was 19, which makes me a novice Curtis Books. I never understood, and never will, the qualifications that led me to be hired that day, but from my first two lines at Quincy, when I was hired by Universal Studios, to my last amazing creative year some 44 years later, in my career there wasn’t a day I didn’t remember. That I am the daughter of movie stars. The sole purpose of the current discussion about newborns is to try to belittle, denigrate and harm children.
I note that for 44 years I have been managing the benefits that family ties and fame have given me. I do not claim that there have never been those trying to tell me that I have no worth. It’s interesting how quickly we start mocking people associated with successful artists, assuming they don’t have talent. I have come to the conclusion that this is not true. I have worked in different places with thousands of people and every day I try to bring professionalism, love, sense of belonging and art to my work.
I’m not alone. There are many of us. dedicated to our profession. Proud of our lineage. We strongly believe in our right to exist.
