    Seems like a nice lady. She really calmed my nerves after the Star Wars mention, almost like she knew who I feel about it.

    Jamie Lee Curtis was how I learned that married people can remain faithful and still have a celebrity crush, because I remember my mother explaining to me how big of a crush my father had on her (and her amazing legs, the legs that ironically failed her at the very end ironically), and the funny part is that she seemed to approve of his taste.

    Why do people describe her as eccentric? I think she’s just awesome and real, and not boring. Honestly I can relate to her but she’s 10000x cooler 😂

  • Sarah Cline

    Halloween made her I think and what I respect about her is no matter how many times she was asked to be in a Halloween movie she was in it. I LOVE this woman she is super cool. Now she was known for her legs after true lies because she had beautiful legs but she should have been known for her personality. And knowing that Jamie Lee had everything to do with the Halloween H20 I have a total respect for it because she was an actress but SHE did what she did it was great for an actress and the latest Halloween that came out in 2018 I LOVED it very much not sure if I like they are doing yet another one after 2018 I just hope it doesn't bomb because I think it would make Jamie sad.
