Before shooting the latest installment, it was Curtis who steered production away from Strode stockpiling automated weapons, like machine guns."They knew that Laurie was going to be someone who used firearms", says Curtis. The outlet argues that this is a glaring testament to her blatant hypocrisy.
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.
Amazing, isn't it, that actors can play characters that don't represent their real-world ideals and opinions? Thankfully, that sort of thing doesn't happen very often outside of the fictional realm of movies. "And I think there were myriad types of firearms that could have been used in the movie. And they have to renew their licence just like we do with automobiles - which are weapons also". Curtis dismissed the article as "silly", and talked about her beliefs on the subject.
"I'm an actress who's in slasher movies", she said.
Novak Djokovic wins a record fourth Shanghai Masters title
Djokovic only lost nine points on serve over the course of the tournament in Shanghai on his way to a 32nd career Masters title. Djokovic , who has now won four titles this season, will move up one ranking spot to No. 2, pushing Roger Federer back to No. 3.
Curtis then went on the share that Laurie could have used a whole slew of weapons, but she wanted her character to only use weapons that are used for "self-defense".
"In that moment, I said, "Aha, ' I have to invent a diaper that has a wiper built into the diaper". "I have to be responsible for my own personal choices in my own personal life".
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.
It was that fear of potentially being pigeonholed as a scream queen that drove Curtis to seek out other genres upon which to build her career - but after several years in which she pursued other roles in Hollywood, including "selling yogurt that makes you poop", Curtis added that when it was time to come back to the Halloween franchise, she did so "with an open heart".
