Jamie Lee Curtis' home avoided by trick-or-treaters on Halloween

Jamie Lee Curtis' home avoided by trick-or-treaters on Halloween”

She was "one of several Hollywood actors who use firearms in their films while preaching against them away from the set", it added. The outlet argues that this is a glaring testament to her blatant hypocrisy.

Check out the entirety of SYFY FANGRRLS' interview with Curtis below, in which she touches on what fans find appealing about Laurie, the relationship between scream queens and feminism, the changes that have taken place in the movie industry since she first started her career in acting, and the rise of Laurie Strode among the return of other older heroines like Sarah Connor and General Leia Organa.

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.

Amazing, isn't it, that actors can play characters that don't represent their real-world ideals and opinions?

Halloween star Jamie Lee Curtis has become quite the controversial figure as she makes the rounds promoting Halloween. Further, she suggested, "What I think might surprise them". The original article calls Curtis' Laurie Strode character out for "wielding firearms" to protect herself from the murderous Michael Myers. Curtis shared an anecdote from the last day of filming, in which she was required to act alone, sans dialogue, as Laurie waits for Michael Myers outside the mental hospital in which he has been imprisoned. "It's a ten-second business conversation, and the answer is, 'you can't, '" he said. "And they have to renew their license just like we do with automobiles - which are weapons also".

"I am vocal about common-sense gun safety and gun laws. I was very clear with the filmmakers that she used the weapons (that) were intended for self-defense for her and her family".

Twitter users by the thousands are pointing out that playing a fictional character with morals that may differ from her own is Curtis's job as an actress. "I have to be responsible for my own personal choices in my own personal life".
