Jamie Lee Curtis responds to Fox article about guns in 'Halloween' movie

Actor does job’ Fox News gun control hit piece on Jamie Lee Curtis backfires spectacularly

Fox News reported on Curtis' stance in favor of gun control stating, "But Curtis's on-screen actions stand in contrast to her real-life persona as an advocate for gun control - one of several Hollywood actors who use firearms in their films while preaching against them away from the set". Although some have expressed disappointment that Curtis didn't stick to her beliefs and turn down a role that depicted gun violence, others were quick to point out that Laurie Strode is likely to have the proper permits.

"On top of that, she urged the "Halloween" filmmakers to be cognizant of sensible gun ownership in developing her character for the upcoming film". The article went on to make the argument that actors who are gun control activists shouldn't be able to use guns in their films. "The support she never got, the mental health services she never got, the loving support of friends and family she never got, and here was a movie crew who were all wearing these name tags", Curtis shared.

"I'm an actress who's in slasher movies".

"I am vocal about common-sense gun safety and gun laws". But I fully support the Bill of Rights. And fully support the Second Amendment. "And they have to renew their licence just like we do with automobiles - which are weapons also".

Actress Jamie Lee Curtis used a promotional interview for the latest edition of the "Halloween" franchise to liken Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh to the movie's fictional killer Michael Myers. "She's the only Jamie Lee, so she's the only Laurie Strode". She has trained and armed herself over the years to prepare for the return of Michael Myers, probably making Sarah Connor from Terminator 2 proud.

"I think there were myriad types of firearms that could have been used in the movie", she said. "I have to be responsible for my own personal choices in my own personal life".

Before shooting the film, which premieres in theaters October 19, Ms. Curtis steered production away from her character stockpiling a cache of weapons, she told USA Today.
