Curtis may give up career for children

She's adding "The Tailor of Panama" to her list of film credits, but Jamie Lee Curtis is thinking about giving up her work on the silver screen to spend more time with her children.

Curtis, daughter of actor Tony Curtis ("Some Like it Hot") and actress Janet Leigh ("Psycho"), has starred in "True Lies," "A Fish Called Wanda," "Trading Places" and three "Halloween" films.

She's married to Christopher Guest, and they are the parents of Annie, 14, and Tom, 5.

"We are raising generations of motherless children," she says in More magazine, making it clear that she means upper middle-class mothers "who have chosen careers that demand they hand over the child-rearing to other people."
