Halloween Star Jamie Lee Curtis Responds to Claims She's Anti-Gun

Jamie Lee Curtis on Wednesday fired back at a Fox News article that painted her as a hypocrite on guns because she pretends to use them in her movies but advocates for gun control in real life.

She was "one of several Hollywood actors who use firearms in their films while preaching against them away from the set", it added.

As Fox News pointed out, Curtis has previously used her social media platform to show support for gun law reform, like when she called for stricter laws following a school shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas in May that left 10 dead. Remember, the last four words of the Second Amendment: "Shall not be infringed".

In her defense, Curtis told USA Today that she, in fact, is a proponent of the right to keep and bear arms, although with a host of checks and regulations.

Unfortunately for the site, the story didn't just catch the attention of a few Halloween fans, it also caught the attention of Laurie Strode herself, Jamie Lee Curtis. Interestingly, it sounds as if the movie wouldn't have happened without her.

"I'm not a big review reader, though people have been calling me and saying, 'Whoa.' But then they sent me one that I did see and it was six words, and it says, 'You will freak the f-ck out, '" Curtis recalled. "It was the only time in my life I've ever made a conscious decision to do something creatively, and I said 'I'm not going to do any more horror movies.' Not because I didn't care about them, not because I felt that they were less than, not because of any other reason except I knew I would be limited". "I was very clear with the filmmakers that she used the weapons [that] were intended for self-defense for her and her family".

"In that moment, I said, "Aha, ' I have to invent a diaper that has a wiper built into the diaper". "And I think there were myriad types of firearms that could have been used in the movie". But I am an actor for hire.

When asked if it would have been possible to do a new Halloween without Curtis reprising her role, producer Bill Block is blunt.
