Some celebrities bring their significant others to the red carpet, but others prefer to keep it all in the family. One such family-oriented celeb is Jamie Lee Curtis, who has a long history of bringing her daughter as her date to many star-studded events, including the 2019 premiere of Knives Out and past award shows. If you’re curious about celebrity families, then you’re likely wondering who Jamie Lee Curtis’ daughter Annie Guest is.
Guest, who celebrated her 35th birthday in December 2021, is the eldest of Jamie Lee Curtis’ two kids. Curtis’ younger daughter, Ruby, is a computer gaming editor who publicly came out as transgender in 2021. The two adopted sisters, nine years apart in age, were raised by Curtis and her husband, screenwriter Christopher Guest. In October, Ruby opened up to People about what it was like coming out to her parents. “It was scary — just the sheer fact of telling them something about me they didn’t know,” she confessed. “It was intimidating — but I wasn’t worried. They had been so accepting of me my entire life.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Curtis said that her sole responsibility is to make sure both of her daughters feel loved and supported no matter what. “I am here to support Ruby,” she said. “That is my job. Just as it is to care and love and support her older sister Annie in her journeys.” Annie, however, likes to keep her life private and isn’t active on social media. But even though she keeps it low-key, her mother has shared multiple pictures of her daughter on Instagram (as moms do).
As for Curtis’ oldest daughter’s true passion, Guest is a professional dancer — and an incredibly accomplished one at that. Here are some more facts about Annie Guest.
