Even though nobody swung an ax in Terms of Endearment, the horror-movie princess calls it "the most completely satisfying movie I have seen." Throughout the film Jamie held hands with mom Janet Leigh. "We laughed and cried together," Curtis says. Her favorite book was Alice Walker's The Color Purple. At the top of her record heap is Proof Through the Night by T-Bone Burnett, and on the tube, she was glued to Masterpiece Theatre's series Pictures.
