Born in California, Curtis started her career from the age of three. She began modeling for print advertisements and television commercials. In 1968 she played a guest role on TV series "Guiding Light" and starred in the movie "Escape From Terror". Her breakthrough came in 1976 when she was cast opposite Kathleen Turner and Michael Douglas into the cult horror film Halloween directed by John Carpenter. The same year Jamie Lee Curtis also appeared as Laurie Strode in one more famous horror film - "Halloween II", which grossed over 46 million dollars at US Box Office after being released on October 30, 1981. Two years later Curtis got another important part of Kelly Capwell-Winchester from soap opera “Capitol” who became an American icon due to her long curly hair with bangs so much that it is known as “The Kelly Cut”. This hairstyle made its way into fashion industry, inspiring women to have their hair cut or curled similarly to match it up with this haircut that is open to imitation even today . While working on Capitol , Curtis decided not only to continue acting but also writing poetry and short stories under pen name Jamie O'Kelly Bensimon (her grandmother's maiden name). Later one collection of these works called “House Of Secrets” was published thanks to Michelle Pfeiffer who had read her poems while attending Yale Drama School together . After leaving Capitol , Jamie Lee Curtis turned down plenty of roles; however, since then she has appeared alongside Jennifer Love Hewitt (in 1998 thriller Cyberstalker), Bruce Willis (in action comedy Bandits) and Christopher Walken (in 2002 crime drama White Oleander).
