Jamie Lee Curtis claps back at Fox News' misguided tweets on guns


To that, Nick Gillespie at Reason.com pointed out that Curtis's stand on the interpretation of just how infringed the Second Amendment can be and still be supported largely mirrors 1980s Republicans. That's one theory we can offer for why Jamie Lee Curtis of Halloween fame has said that she isn't a fan of scary flicks.

On Wednesday, Fox News generated a lot of unintended online hilarity with an article that tried to manufacture a political statement out of Jamie Lee Curtis' latest acting job.

"I was very clear with the filmmakers that she used the weapons [that] were intended for self-defence for her and her family". Curtis dismissed the article as "silly", and talked about her beliefs on the subject.

But her role includes the use of firearms for self-defense, which is odd considering Curtis's efforts to restrict Americans' right to possess the guns they need to defend themselves and their families. Curtis reportedly made sure automatic weapons were not part of Strode's strategy. Further, she suggested, "What I think might surprise them". "And it was from David Fear, Rolling Stone magazine, and I actually wrote the marketing team for Halloween and said, 'Ya know what guys?" Curtis is joined in the film by Judy Greer who plays Karen Strode, the daughter of Curtis' character, and Andi Matichak (Orange Is the New Black, Underground) who plays Allyson, the granddaughter of Laurie Strode. "I have to be responsible for my own personal choices in my own personal life". She added: "If I had made my career as a pacifist actor, I would never have worked, ever". "I mean, you could make a cast list, but you'd just roll your eyes at it".

Notably, Curtis herself reportedly consulted on the types of weapons her character would use in the film, to defend herself against Halloween's villain and Strode's own personal boogeyman, Michael Myers.
