Jamie Lee Curtis is not among the dozen stars who will be waltzing toward the Mirrorball Trophy on the buzzed-about 11th season of Dancing With The Stars — but not for lack of trying on ABC’s part.

The Halloween actress — who will next appear in the ensemble comedy You Again — says she was courted to join the upcoming edition of the ballroom reality show, but turned her nose up at the offer after finding that the show’s infamous grueling rehearsal schedule would leave her with little time to spend with her family. After all, Jamie Lee is the Queen of the Castle at home, where she shares her life with actor husband Christopher Guest and their two children.

“They’ve knocked,” Curtis, 51, admits. “No one was home. I just don’t have the family time for that amount of work.”

Although we won’t get to see Jamie Lee swap her duties as the face (and bowels) of Activa, the actress shows off some pretty serious dance moves in the Disney movie, which opens Sept. 24.

Dancing With the Stars – singer-actress Brandy and former NBA star-turned-actor Rick Fox — featuring premieres on Monday, Sept. 20 @ 8 PM.
