Meet Tony Curtis' Four Daughters

CHAPTER 2

HIS PERSONAL LIFE

Tony first stepped into the sanctimony of marriage with Janet Leigh on June 4, 1951. The birth of their two daughters followed some years later with Kelly being his firstborn. While Janet gave birth to Kelly on June 17, 1956, in Santa Monica, California, Jamie Lee came into the world two years later on November 22, 1958, in Los Angeles, California.

As children, they “ran the gamut from tearing each other’s hair out,” and often ignored each other. However, their rift grew wider after their parents divorced on September 14, 1962. Kelly chose to live with their father, while Jamie Lee stayed with their mom. Having grown up since then, the two sisters mended their relationship.

“It wasn’t like we hated each other. There was always an underlying, basic sort of sisterly thing,”  Jamie Lee told PEOPLE. “We just never really were confidantes. And now we are.”
