Interestingly, it sounds as if the movie wouldn't have happened without her.

Curtis will use a gun in this film as her character tries to survive Michael Myers' latest murder spree, and for some reason, Fox apparently chose to use this as an opportunity to call her a hypocrite because of Curtis' real-life support for gun control.

Ms. Curtis said she's vocal about advocating for "common-sense" gun laws, like a ban on so-called "assault" weapons and a ban on bump stocks, but that she firmly believes in the right for Americans to own guns.

In light of several high-profile mass shootings, Curtis has voiced her support for gun reform legislation.

But she said she fully supports the Second Amendment and has "absolutely no problem with people owning firearms if they have been trained, licensed, a background check has been conducted, a pause button has been pushed to give time for that process to take place". Using new technology, we just brought them back to life - we put new life into it, really.

Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.

Beyond the central point of gun control, which is a debate still raging in pop culture and in all culture, Curtis also further drove home the point that she's playing a character, and characters exist in stories that are driven by conflict.

As for Curtis, she was a little more direct.

"I'm an actress who's in slasher movies", she told the publisher. But I am an actor for hire.

Debuting on October 19, the latest Halloween is directed by David Gordon Green from a script written with Danny McBride and Jeff Fradley. She added: "If I had made my career as a pacifist actor, I would never have worked, ever".
