There is a longstanding, oft repeated urban myth that Jamie Lee Curtis was born a hermaphrodite (or 'intersexual' as the condition is known today).
This hybrid form has left her to live as an outcast, unwelcome in villages and befriended by few.
As a response to the harassment she received in her childhood for being an hermaphrodite, she took a liking to clothes that emphasize feminine characteristics.
That is, she had both boys bits and girls bits when she was born at Cedars Sinai Hospital in Hollywood and her parents chose to raise her as a girl.
