1. What Is Jamie Lee Curtis’s Net Worth?

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Curtis is currently worth $60 million. FYI, this is the combined net worth of her and her husband, Christopher Guest.

2. How Much Did Curtis Earn from the Halloween Films?

Curtis has starred in seven of the Halloween movies as Laurie, including Halloween Kills, Halloween Resurrection and Halloween Ends. However, the actress wasn’t paid much for the first few movies. She told Variety, “The truth of the matter is, I didn’t really make much money off of the horror movies. We’re actors, so we already make more money based on the little work we do. It’s hard to ever say, ‘I didn’t make a lot of money.’ Tell that to a teacher or nurse. But as a young actress, I did not.”

She continued, “I did not have ownership in the movies. There was no profit participation. There was no back end… Obviously, someone was making a lot of money—it was not me. And it was only in the latter years—the H2O, the 2018 Halloween, which, by the way, we made for scale.” (FYI, working for scale = working for the minimum pay rate.)

Celebrity Net Worth reports that Curtis made $8,000 for Halloween, $100,000 for Halloween II and a whopping $3 million for Halloween: Resurrection, totaling $3.1 million for all three. So, it’s likely that she made even more for the final installment, Halloween Ends.

Curtis may be one of Hollywood’s favorite Scream Queens, but her status hasn’t stopped her from exploring other movie genres. She showcased her comedic chops in films like Knives Out, Christmas with the Kranks and Freaky Friday, in addition to romance movies like Forever Young and Love Letters. Her earnings for these films are unknown, but we’re certain that she earned a pretty penny for her more recent roles.
