Many horror movie fans associate Jamie Lee Curtis with the Halloween franchise. Jamie has played Laurie Strode throughout the last four decades. As fans will know, Laurie is a woman who will save herself from Michael Myers’ wrath by any means. Nonetheless, the serial killer continues his quest to kill her every time she returns to Haddonfield.
In July 2022, the trailer for the latest Halloween film, Halloween Ends, circulated online. Jamie will reprise her role as Laurie in the movie and attempt to battle Michael one last time.
While the actress and her fans are sad to see her close a pivotal chapter, Jamie can surely afford to put her running shoes down for quite some time.
What is Jamie Lee Curtis’s net worth?
As of 2022, Jamie has a net worth of $60 million, most of which comes from her acting roles. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Jamie’s husband, Christopher Guest, also helped boost her fortune. In addition to being a notable screenwriter, musician, and actor, Christopher is the fifth Baron Haden-Guest, a hereditary British peerage. This makes Jamie a Baroness, though she reportedly doesn’t use the title.
Before she would become a top “scream queen,” Jamie was already accustomed to the entertainment industry. Her parents were actors, and her mother, Janet Leigh, played Marion Crane in Psycho.

What is Jamie Lee Curtis doing now?
Although Halloween Ends is Jamie’s last film as Laurie, the actress seemingly doesn’t plan on quitting acting anytime soon. In 2022, she starred in Everything Everywhere All At Once and Reno 911!.
Off-screen, Jamie is active on social media, where she shares moments with Christopher and their two kids — Annie and Ruby. Some Bravo fans may have also seen Jamie on Season 12 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. In one episode, the actress’s friend and Halloween co-star Kyle Richards invited her to a luncheon with the cast.
While the function was for Jamie’s company, My Hand in Yours, she became involved in a beauty faux pas with Sheree Zampino. Sheree attempted to glue her eyelashes back on and enlisted Sutton Stracke’s help. When Sutton couldn’t help on her own, Jamie stepped in unexpectedly.
“Jamie actually thought that that couldn’t be real that that would actually happen,” Kyle said of the Scream Queens alum’s reaction on the RHOBH aftershow.
