"I feel safe when I drive up and see that [he is] home," Curtis says of the writer and director. "That's the long marriage."

She added, "It's the safety of knowing his car is in the garage, that I'm not alone.”

The couple first married in 1984 and together have two children, Annie, 34, and Ruby, 25. Curtis shared that the couple has "watched in wonder and pride as our son became our daughter Ruby. And she and her fiancé will get married next year at a wedding that I will officiate."

In December, the “Halloween” star took to Instagram to share a rare black-and-white throwback photo of her and Guest.

“One of the longest relationships I’ve had seeking comfort and contact and connection is with Chris. Today marks the 36th anniversary of our wedding. My hand in his. Then and now,” the star shared in the caption.

Curtis added, “Connected through our children and family and friends it became the links in our human emotional chain that have seen each of us through triumph and tragedy.”

In June, the actress spoke about her childhood experience. Curtis, the daughter of Hollywood icons Tony Curtis ("Some Like It Hot") and Janet Leigh ("Psycho") recently admitted her parents’ decisions to nip and tuck made her mindful of ever going under the knife herself.

"I'm the child of movie stars. I watched my parents get face lifts and neck lifts," Curtis said.

"I watched their work diminish, I watched their fame not diminish. And the contradiction of a lot of fame, but not a lot of work, is really hard to navigate for people. Very hard to be famous but not be doing the thing that made you famous. And that for the rest of your life, you're famous for something you did a long time ago, and you chase that attention."

Curtis is set to star in the upcoming horror film, “Halloween Kills” premiering October 15.
