Jamie Lee Curtis wields firearms in new 'Halloween' movie despite advocating for gun control
Fox News ^ | October 10, 2018 | Louis Casiano

Jamie's got a gun in the latest "Halloween" reboot.

In the 11th installment of the horror film series, Jamie Lee Curtis's character, Laurie Strode, is seen wielding firearms in her quest to kill the film's legendary villain, Michael Myers.

At one point, she shoots him as he's standing in front of a window.

But Curtis’s on-screen actions stand in contrast to her real-life persona as an advocate for gun control -- one of several Hollywood actors who use firearms in their films while preaching against them away from the set.

In light of several high-profile mass shootings, Curtis has voiced her support for gun reform legislation. But she's also appeared in films such as "True Lies," "Virus," "Halloween II" and "Blue Steel" where she uses firearms multiple times.

Funny how so many of the most vocal gun control advocates in Hollywood use firearms in movies and TV shows. And also attend events heavily guarded by armed security.

The same was true with Sigourney Weaver.
“I’m against guns, unless there’s a paycheck involved.”
The technical terms for this is, “Sell out,” and, “Hypocrite.”

We know their positions as anti-gun hypocrites.

Don't go to their movies, buy their dvd’s or watch them on streaming services that you have to pay for.

Take money away from them.

Hollywood is nothing if not the epitome of hypocrisy.

Jamie (show us your ta tas) Lee Curtis. It’s the only reason she had a career is from flashing her boobs and/or ending up in her underwear in most every movie.

I think it’s hysterically funny that the freaks in Hollywood told the rest of us to shut up when we were complaining about the immoral sexual content of movies, and the over-the-top violence. We were called names and made fun of for being concerned about such garbage.

Now these same people are the MeToo, puritan little flowers, with their revealing clothes and their silicone body parts, recoiling at the thought of a gun. What a farce.

That’s more talent than most of them. Love her breasts in trading places.

This makes me wonder how many of those big stars that now accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual abuse from years ago were willing to tolerate that abuse to obtain the star status they enjoy now.

You say that like it's a bad thing.

It follows that-if you make your livelihood being what you are not then the real you is fake as well. How can a professional fake be trusted in anything?

Oh I was in love with them when I(and she) was younger. She’s 6-7 years older than me which means she was hitting the scene when I was a teenager.

Of course, how else do you think actors become such renowned experts on firearms and gun regulations but through these rolesl

The world needs to be reminded of their hypocrisy daily.

All dumb@ss Jamie can do anymore is appear in cheap B rate horror movies and take her top off. Now that she’s an old woman, I would not count the latter as one of her “talents” anymore.

TRUE LIES is one of my all time favorite movies.

Still waiting for it to be released in high definition Blu-ray or Ultra High Definition 4K Blu-ray.

But given the fact the film accurately portrays Muslim terrorists, and Janes Cameron is afraid to offend the Muzzies, I doubt it will ever happen. Wichita is too bad because the film is a classic and would sell like hot cakes and make Cameron a ton of money to dump into his new anti-capitalism Avatar rant fiasco.
