Biografie von Jamie Lee Curtis

Ihr Vater wurde an der Seite von Schauspiellegende berühmt, ihre Mutter ging als Mordopfer aus "Psycho" in die Filmgeschichte ein. Kein Wunder, dass bei diesen Genen ebenso eine berühmte und erfolgreiche Schauspielerin wurde.

Jamie Lee Curtis wird zur "Scream Queen"

Ihre Filmkarriere begann die kalifornische Schauspielerin mit Horrorstreifen. Den großen Durchbruch feierte Jamie Lee Curtis Ende der siebziger Jahre mit der Hauptrolle im Horrorfilm "Halloween – Die Nacht des Grauens", dem ersten Teil der erfolgreichen "Halloween"-Reihe. Spätestens nach "The Fog – Nebel des Grauens" hatte sie ihren Stempel als "Scream Queen" weg und wurde mit Vorliebe für Horrorfilme besetzt.

Jamie Lee Curtis erobert Hollywood

Doch in den achtziger Jahren schaffte es die talentierte Mimin, sich von diesem Genre zu befreien und bewies eindrucksvoll, dass sie ebenso im komödiantischen Metier glänzen kann. 1983 kam sie an der Seite von und mit der Komödie "Die Glücksritter" in die Kinos, gefolgt von dem Erfolgsfilm "Ein Fisch namens Wanda" mit und . Mitte der neunziger Jahre konnte Jamie Lee Curtis neben mit dem Actionfilm " - Wahre Lügen" große Erfolge verbuchen und gewann für ihre schauspielerischen Leistungen ihren ersten Golden Globe. Zwei Jahre später stand sie erneut mit John Cleese und Kevin Kline für die US-amerikanisch-britische Filmkomödie "Wilde Kreaturen" vor der Kamera. Der Streifen war gespickt mit Anspielungen auf "Ein Fisch namens Wanda", konnte zwar an dessen Erfolg nicht ganz anknüpfen, gilt aber heute ebenso als bedeutendes Werk von Jamie Lee Curtis' Filmografie. Nach den Fortsetzungen der "Halloween"-Reihe "Halloween H20" und "Halloween: Resurrection", in dem ihre Figur Laurie Strode von ihrem Bruder umgebracht wurde, folgte im neuen Jahrtausend wieder eine Komödie. Mit Teeniestar Lindsey Lohan spielte Jamie Lee Curtis in "Freaky Friday – Ein voll verrückter Freitag" und wurde für einen Saturn, Satellite und Golden Globe Award nominiert.

Sie hat schwere Zeiten hinter sich

Doch, auch wenn es zunächst so klingen mag, war das Leben für Jamie Lee Curtis nicht immer ein Zuckerschlecken. Jahrelang war die Schauspielerin alkoholabhängig, später wurde sie süchtig nach Schmerzmitteln. Die Rettung war ihre Tochter Annie. "Ich glaube, sie brauchte mich einfach. Es machte Klick - und ich machte mit den Drogen Schluss." Seit 1999 ist Jamie Lee nun trocken und clean. Sicherlich auch ein Grund, wieso sie sich immer mehr aus Hollywood zurückzieht, aber es gibt auch andere Gründe, wie sie erfrischend ehrlich in einem Interview gestand. "Hollywood ist die Kulisse meiner Familie, und ich weiß, dass das Filmgeschäft grausam ist, wenn man älter wird." Dafür dürfen wir Jamie Lee Curtis hin und wieder noch im Fernsehen bewundern. In jüngster Vergangenheit sehen wir die Darstellerin, der in den achtziger Jahren der Spitzname "The Body" verpasst wurde, in verschiedensten Serien, darunter "New Girl" und in einer der Hauptrollen in der Horror-Comedy-Fernsehserie "Scream Queens"

Superheroes Club. In this year of Wonder Woman comes a delightful book for children called Superheroes Club. The central message is that a superhero is not what they look like but what they do. A message of caring and sharing, much-needed in this time of division and hatred. A loving gift for a child in your life. #superheroesclub Jamie Lee Curtis

As we all are waking up to the brutality that Colin Kaepernick was bringing to our attention and the myriad ways Mother Nature is showing her displeasure with the way we are treating her, these children are struggling to stay alive, to reach an age where THEY can be change makers and advocates for the world. No amount is too small. Please join me in supporting them.

There are times when we all are one. Every time there is a catastrophe, we focus, often on a single image, and our human need to help and heal emerges. @strongerthefilm and the story of #jeffbauman and his family and girlfriend tells such a story. It LIFTS you UP and makes you realize that we all are STRONGER together. I urge you to go today, on the birth of this film and be transported and made better by it. #strongermovie #strengthdefinesus In Theaters September 22nd!

I met her Royal Highness, Princess Diana when I was shooting the sequel to A Fish Called Wanda. The truth is I didn't meet her. She was to visit our set deep in the gardens of Pinewood Studios with her children and we waited for her all morning and then when we took a break midday, I raced via golf cart to my dressing room to use the restroom. While I was in there someone came knocking on my door saying that Princess Diana and her children had arrived on set and as I raced back in the golf cart, they were already walking away. The next day I wrote her a note explaining my nature break and how disappointed I was not to tell her, in person, how much I admired her. A hand delivered letter from Kensington Palace, on her stationary, came the next day thanking me for mine and understanding completely the need for nature to take it's course. We exchanged a hope that we would get to meet in the future. Later that summer I heard about her shocking death. I remember turning off the television knowing what the media was going to do. I picked up a book on meditation which was next to my bed by Joseph Goldstein and Jack Kornfeld. In it it said that at the time of death, people who try to live mindfully, ask themselves only two questions. Did I learn to live wisely? Did I love well? I thought about her and her life and the choices she made and how brave she was, how she reached out to that young man with AIDS before anyone did, the mine fields, mental health and so much more and how much she loved her children, the image of them running into her outstretched arms after a long trip. It gave me comfort that although her life was short, it was complete. She was a great role model for me. An example to live by. I honor her this day.

This photo by @lynngoldsmith is early evidence of the grace and grit of Sam Shepard. Her early photos of Patti Smith and Robert Maplethorpe and Sam Shepard are reminders of time gone by and genius expressed! Too soon gone.
