New Respect for Jamie Lee Curtis

JLC isn’t someone who I usually find all that compelling, and honestly those yogurt commercials did very little to endear me to her more. But this is a very sweet gesture that says a lot about her character and why she must have endured in Hollywood all these years. I also have always liked that story about her taking over the role of the mother at the last minute in the Freaky Friday movie and just running with it without any prep and having a great time. And the striptease in True Lies is a classic in physical comedy, right up there with a Lucy routine. What praise do you have for the indomitable JLC?

This is really lovely. Thanks for sharing.

I worked at an art gallery in Venice, Ca back in the 90s. Jamie was good friends with the owner and came in a lot. We all loved her. She was down to earth, super-nice and knew everyone’s name. Just the best

Love her, OP. She seems to be honest and straightforward. In her case I think that it's "what you se is what you get."

Jamie’s Got A Gun

by Anonymousreply 411/20/2020

Jamie has always been cool. I assume she was raised well - a tough feat, considering her famous parents. I wish she got better roles. No one in Hollywood thinks outside the box.

She’s cool AF and tries to be of service to others.

Not a snobbish bone in her.

She's always seemed like someone who is "in on the joke" of Hollywood. She's a decent actress with a flair for comedy, but she knows she's not Meryl and that she's lucky not to be "working for a living".

She made the awful film PERFECT less awful. BLUE STEEL is one of my favorite cop movies because she’s in it.

Isn't this the bitch who ruined Christmas with her depressing album?

1/4 cup of ‘Just For Men’?

R9 She's never made any music as far as I know.

I have always been a fan of hers, though. She is intelligent, funny, and seems like she would be a great person to have as a friend. I also love all the movies I've seen her in and can think of nothing bad to say about her.

by Anonymousreply 1111/20/2020

Love her. Brilliant in a Fish Called Wanda. She's real. And I appreciate she lets herself age gracefully.

Stop with the tacky he-she rumors. Grow up or at least move past the 80s, dears.

That ‘growing olde naturally’ schtick is getting on my fucking nerves!

R11, that was actually a joke. I have a friend who thought Annie Lennox and Jamie Lee Curtis were the same person.

Her mom seemed like a really nice ‘take no bullshit’ kind of gal. Always liked her and always liked Jamie.

This is way too long with leading up and follow up scenes, but it contains the whole hallway transformation which is priceless. It’s funny reading the comments about how many guys supposedly wanked off to this scene. An interesting comparison to Demi’s whole striptease movie, which was better. Definitely the humor here wins it all.

She's hilarious, wonder why she never worked with her husband.

R17: They probably wanted to stay married. I have respect for her having boundaries.

by Anonymousreply 1811/20/2020

Love True Lies, A Fish Called Wanda - but REALLY love Blue Steel. That movie was made when NYC was still gritty and dangerous and director Kathryn Bigelow luxuriated in those qualities to create something truly menacing, fucked up and visually brilliant. And Jamie was perfect for it. Kinda butch yet vulnerable.

I read this story last week and it made me cry. It was a lovely thing to do. I have always thought Jamie Lee exuded a down-to-earth sensibility, which is odd for someone raised in show business. I suspect it has to do with the the fact that both her parents had rough upbringings and came from quite literally nothing--it seems they instilled humility in her.

by Anonymousreply 2011/20/2020

so sad, the guy was so young. Kudos to Jamie 🧡

by Anonymousreply 2111/20/2020

Remember when she showed up for the opening of Kyle Richards' tacky clothing store on RHOBH a few years back? She was very gracious to do that.

Kyle told some story about Jamie Lee picking her up in her arms after a long day on the Halloween set and taking her back to the hotel and putting her to bed. Jamie was looking at her like, "I don't remember this at all and I think you're making it up," but she politely played along.

by Anonymousreply 2211/20/2020

I think she had a different perspective on Hollywood with having BOTH parents being stars. She also knows a TON of people and has a ton of contacts through that when she was first starting out, and through working with so many different people in her career.

It's funny how often I forget that her career started in Halloween and it was very much stepping into her mom's shoes and fame from Psycho. Then she starred in Operation Petticoat on TV, that was based on one of her father's films.

She still gets roles - Knives Out last year. I feel like she would do well in a serious TV series, but maybe doesn't have the appetite for the work schedule.

And let's not forget - she's Baroness Jamie Haden-Guest, not that she gives two shits about that. She's a great woman and has had such a varying career - including writing several books and creating a patent for diapers (!).

by Anonymousreply 2311/20/2020

She seems like a very kind, gracious, down to earth person but I wish she would dye her hair back to it's natural brunette color. The natural grey/white makes her look older and I think she's lost roles because of it.

by Anonymousreply 2411/20/2020

I wonder if she ever goes out with a cucumber 🥒 down her pants, to fuck with people?!

by Anonymousreply 2511/20/2020

I think it was smart for her not to appear in Christopher Guest's movies. The actors in them are a sort of ensemble that changes a little bit from movie to movie, but has the same core group. And as much as some people lament her not having a bigger career, I think she was big enough that her introduction into that group would disrupt the dynamics. Of course, I am talking about the mocumentaries, not Spinal Tap.

R25 she doesn’t need to?

I don't think Jamie would mind since she did Scream Queens.
