Jamie Lee Curtis has made fairly the identify for herself over her decades-long profession, however there’s one other identify she is going to generally hear in any respect the mistaken moments.
On Monday, Oct. 4, the 62-year-old Halloween Kills actress visited The Late Late Present, the place she advised host James Corden and band chief Reggie Watts that she used to go by “Jamie Curtis” earlier than launching her profession, and that she did not embrace her center identify till it got here to pursue her craft.
After Watts requested is she ever went with out the “Lee,” the star replied, “Oh, sure—many, many, many, many occasions. That was who I used to be till I grew to become an actor. I might by no means have referred to as myself a three-name individual. That felt somewhat pretentious.”
Curtis, whose mother and father are late Hollywood stars Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh, defined that she did not initially just like the identify “Jamie” as a result of children would tease her about it sounding like a boy’s identify.
