“The most important part of my work is the people I get to come home from that work to.”
With the latest sequel to “Halloween” enjoying positive reviews from film critics, scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis has much to celebrate.
That’s why she was inspired to post a picture of her clan on the red carpet for the “Halloween” world premiere. Curtis, who is normally a private person, gave fans a behind-the-scenes look at her nearest and dearest by posting a sweet family shot on her Instagram page.
In the photo, the Hollywood icon posed with her husband Christopher Guest, and their children Annie and Tom. Guest is a British actor best known for his work on cult classics like “This Is Spinal Tap” and “Best in Show,” and the couple have been married since 1984.
Curtis wrote as a caption, “The most important part of my work is the people I get to come home from that work to.”
Curtis and Guest have had a long marriage, especially by Hollywood standards. So, what relationship advice does she offer other couples?
“Don’t get divorced,” the 59-year-old Golden Globe winner quipped. “It’s a fascinating thing. I could write a book on marriage called ‘Don’t Leave.’”
Guest and Curtis adopted their daughter in 1986, and then adopted their son 10 years later. She has been open about the at-times difficult process.
“Adoption is a very complicated road filled with incredibly emotional and challenging aspects,” Curtis told Parents in 2016. “It’s a complicated terrain but still a beautiful way to make a family. You have to just be really open to all sides of it.”
It seems that Curtis’ approach to motherhood has led to two happy kids. Her daughter Annie, 31, is a dance teacher who has a BFA in Dance from Kenyon College:

As for Tom, the 22-year-old has introduced his mom to the wonderful world of gaming, and she’s a great sport about it — going so far as to cosplay with him at the “Warcraft” premiere in 2016.
“We’re serious about our games,” she said. “The astonishing thing about being a parent is that your children bring things to you that you would never, ever, ever, ever know. And you hope that you bring a few things to them that are interesting.”
Something tells us that Curtis’s children definitely find their wildly talented and famous mama pretty interesting indeed!
