Personal Quote:

[on the paparazzi] It's part of my job, but it's one thing if you take a picture of me head to toe, it's another thing when they focus in on your nose or something and that's all they're shooting because they're doing a story about nose jobs. Then you go, 'why did I allow that to be a part of my life?' See more »

Trivia:

Curtis, along with her son, is an avid fan of the Warcraft series of video games, especially "World of Warcraft". She and her son often participate in gaming conventions, as well as performing cosplay (dressing in full costume as a character from the series, complete with makeup/prosthetics and props), including a memorable turnout as green-skinned orcs at the US premiere of the "Warcraft" movie.
