Way to support Mom! Jamie Lee Curtis’s stunning daughter Annie Guest sported matching gray hair with her mom at the 2016 Golden Globes. Rocking tousled waves, Guest could revive the “granny hair” trend that was a favorite with millennials last year. Arm in arm, Curtis said how much she loved bringing her daughter with writer-actor-director Christopher Guest. “It’s really nice, you are [going] with a girlfriend rather than a child,” said Curtis. Guest said she was having a blast as well. “I’m having a lot of fun, just really happy to be here supporting my mom.”
Curtis, a Lead Actress nominee for Scream Queens, made a conscious point of going gray almost a decade ago. She told AARP magazine that it was an experience at the Golden Globes that inspired her to stop coloring her hair. “Years ago, my husband and I were at the Golden Globes. I was wearing some borrowed dress that wasn’t me, my hair was done in a way that I never wear my hair, and I had earrings on. And my husband said, ‘You know who is the most beautiful woman in the room?’ And I was hoping he was going to say me. And he pointed across the room at Jessica Tandy,” Curtis told the magazine. “She was sitting at a table wearing a cream-colored silk shantung pantsuit. Single strand of pearls, short white hair, a little lipstick — nothing else. And I thought, ‘He’s totally right.’ There was none of the pretense, none of the trying so hard.”
Curtis played with her style for years, and told the magazine that going with her natural hair color and a more laid-back look has made her life that much easier. “I’ve etched out who I am through myriad haircut attempts, outfit attempts, beauty attempts, diet attempts. It’s been an evolution. I’ve let my hair go gray. I wear only black and white. Every year I buy three or four black dresses that I just keep in rotation.”
When Curtis chose to go gray, it was a bold move that made her stand out in youth-obsessed Hollywood. At the time, Curtis may never have expected that in in her 20s, her daughter would choose to copy her look. But given that her mother exudes confidence and looks stunning, it’s no surprise that Guest would love to adopt it and make it her own.
