Janet Leigh & Jamie Lee Curtis It is not often that two generations of women become famous for the exact same thing, but about 15 years apart, both mother and daughter became reigning Scream Queens. From her iconic shower scene in Psycho, Janet Leigh became a household name and continued her trajectory to becoming a well-respected actress. In 1978, daughter Jamie Lee would have a similar burst of fame from her starring role in Halloween. Guess the apple doesn’t scream far from the tree.
