She was born in Santa Monica, California, the eldest child of actors Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh, and the sister of actress Jamie Lee Curtis. Her paternal grandparents were Hungarian Jewish immigrants[1] and two of her maternal great-grandparents were Danish.[2] Kelly's parents divorced in 1962, after which her mother married Robert Brandt.
