The two stars divorced in 1962, with Jamie having limited contact with her father from then on and mostly being raised by her mother and stepfather.

For those unaware, Janet was considered one of the original "scream queens," thanks to her legendary turn as Marion Crane in Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho (1960), which earned her a Golden Globe and an Oscar nod, foreshadowing her daughter's own scream queen status in the Halloween franchise.

She has also starred in several other big-budget projects such as The Manchurian Candidate and Bye Bye Birdie during the Golden Age of Hollywood, with others including Little Women and Holiday Affair.

Tony, on the other hand, was a leading dramatic actor during the period, earning his own Academy Award nomination for 1958's The Defiant Ones, while also giving a comedic tour-de-force in 1959's revered Some Like It Hot.

The actress was one of the big winners at the recent SAG Awards

In Vanity Fair's Little Gold Men podcast, Jamie stated: "[My parents'] fame and success was always – to me, their stardom at the time was so ginormous that even though I've had fantastic success, I never thought I would reach their level."
