Was Janet Leigh devastated by Jamie Lee Curtis's being born a hermaphrodite?
Janet seemed so proper and cordial (at least as played by Scarjo in that Hitchcock movie.)
I have known Jamie Lee for many years. I knew her mother quite well. This is a bogus Hollywood urban myth. She was not born a hermaphrodite. Sorry to shit on your parade, but that story is just fucking wrong. Jamie Lee is one of the sweetest, kindest people I have ever met. She's generous and would do anything for a person in need. Like I said, sorry to spoil your fun.
That's all I have to say about this matter!
It seems as if you're saying that hermaphrodites couldn't possibly be sweet, kind and generous. That would be bigoted.
Janet Leigh was always the poor man's Grace Kelly.
R4 This is R1. I was going to leave my statement as it was, but I am responding to you because I did not intend it to sound bigoted. It was not intended that way. I do not know any hermaphrodites (to my knowledge), but I'm sure that many are sweet, kind and generous. However, I don't think it's fair to Ms. Curtis to have to be subjected to this rumor that is absolutely not true. If it were, so be it. That would be fine. But, she is not, nor has she ever been, male.
R1 A. Friend
Don't most people know this is an 80s era rumor? Like the Richard Gere gerbil story or the Rod Stewart stomach full of semen or the affair between the female costars of the Accused? Oh wait...
Janet Leigh was in the hospital for a long time after Jamie was born.
This is one of the stupidest DL 'memes" ever. She's not a hermaphrodite, and anyone with half a brain knows that.
Obviously, that wouldn't include OP, since he is clearly brainless.
Has anyone seen the "Murder, She Wrote" episode with Janet Leigh?
JLC was definitely born a hermaphrodite. That's a fact. But there's nothing wrong with that, it's not so uncommon, and by the way, R1, I know several people who've worked with her and they all says she/he is a total bitch/bastard.
What about her sister Jennifer Jason Leigh
R11, you're full of lies.
Where is your proof that she's a hermaphrodite? You have none. Just "that's a fact." Facts are provable - yours isn't.
And you're also lying about knowing several people who say she is a total bitch, because she's not. She's well-known, and well-loved, as one of the most gracious people in Hollywood.
What kind of damage do you have to make up such lies, fuckhead?
where did this rumor about her originate from?
R11, is the shit that comes out of your fetid prolapsed asshole as awful as the shit that comes poring out of your ignorant mouth?
i am loving this thread... claws out bitches!
Genuinely curious, but does anyone know the origins of Jamie Lee Curtis being a hermaphrodite? I never heard this until reading it on DL.
[quote] know several people who've worked with her and they all says she/he is a total bitch/bastard.
LMAO @ bitch/bastard..
R17, her birth certificate says "Girl-Boy"
You know that "intersexed" is different from "hermaphrodite," right?
I heard that she was born with androgen insensitivity syndrome, not a hermaphrodite. Meaning that genetically she is male, which is why she has no kids because she's sterile, but she developed as a female as all fetuses do if not exposed to androgen or insensitive to it. Just a rumor though, no idea if it is true.
Snopes says they don't know if she's intersexed or not.
ScarJo plays her a bit coy and ambitious- she seemed eager to please and a bit of a brown noser.
This isn't gossip, this is mean.
She has an extra chromosome. That's why she couldn't conceive. She's not a hermaphrodite.
I read a Medical Mysteries column in Discover Magazine 15 years ago on androgen sensitivity syndrome.
It was directly in a thinly veiled way about Jaime Lee.
I don't know if the rumor is true, but it pre-dates DL.
R17 this is in reply to you.
She is barren....had to adopt children.
It didn't help that her husband is gay.
S/he is one of the sweetest, kindest freaks of nature alive.
a little off topic, but I think she had a brother who lived on Cape Cod. I always find it interesting how the brothers/sisters manager with a famous sibling. I remember reading that Meg Ryan had a sister that worked at a Stop and Shop in Hyannis, MA.
