Actor

Few baronesses can be called classic scream queens, but Curtis — daughter of Oscar nominees Janet Leigh and Tony Curtis — fits the bill nicely. Married into British royalty via husband Christopher Guest, the 60-year-old triumphed at the box office in 2018, breaking records with a reboot of her now classic debut film, “Halloween,” produced by Jason Blum. While the original took in $47 million in 1978, the revamp saw $255 million in worldwide receipts, proving Curtis can be both wickedly funny and fiercely durable. Continuing her streak in 2018, the author of over 12 YA books published “Me, Myselfie & I: A Cautionary Tale.” Next, she’ll play herself in the web series “Guest Grumps,” return as Laurie Strode in two “Halloween” sequels, and star in upcoming comedy feature “Senior Entourage,” following her role in the well-received 2019  Rian Johnson whodunnit, “Knives Out.”
