Jamie Lee Curtis | Daughter of Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh

Being born to actress Janet Leigh and actor Tony Leigh meant that to a degree, Jamie Lee Curtis would also become an actress. However, that is not necessarily true, but that was the case for the young Jamie, including her sisters and half-siblings, who also became celebrities. As a result, Jamie dropped out of college to pursue her acting career, which turned out to be for the better.

The siblings were born to privilege because they had wealthy parents who could afford to try out acting and face its many challenges. It is a known fact that actors struggle financially first before they make a break if they ever do. What is good is that Jamie started from a position of advantage, both financially and in terms of skills. Her role in Trading Places, for example, earned her a BAFTA, which showed just how versatile the actress is.
