Jamie Lee Curtis reveals the critical change she made to Halloween Kills

Jamie Lee Curtis has revealed that she had an important influence on how her new horror movie, Halloween Kills, plays out. 

The actress, 62, who reprises her role as Laurie Strode in the slasher franchise, made sure her character ditched her hospital gown. 

‘I was involved in trying to figure out a way to get me out of a f***ing hospital gown because the way it was written, Laurie was in a hospital gown the whole movie,’ she told Sydney Confidential on Saturday.

‘I said to (director) David Green, I’ve been there, done that, I am not going to run around a hospital with my bare arse hanging out’. 

Jamie added that her character is a ‘wounded warrior’ and she didn’t want her to seem like a ‘wimp’.    

‘I said, if you put Arnold Schwarzenegger in a hospital gown, he looks like a wimp. If you put Vin Diesel in a hospital gown, he’s going to look like a wimp. If you put Angela Bassett in a hospital gown, she’s going to look wimpy.

'I said to (director) David Green, I've been there, done that, I am not going to run around a hospital with my bare arse hanging out,' Jamie explained. 'And I said, Laurie Strode cannot be wimpy this whole movie. That was my biggest contribution to the movie - the fact that I get back in my clothes'

Curtis first portrayed Laurie Strode in the initial Halloween movie, which was released in 1978 and served as her film debut.

The feature was centered around her character’s interaction with killer Michael Myers, who brutally terrorizes her and her friends on the holiday of the same name.

The John Carpenter-directed film received generally positive reviews upon its initial release and has come to be regarded as one of the most influential horror films ever made.

Curtis reprised her role as Strode in the film’s direct sequel, which made its debut in 1981.

She provided various voices for the 1982 flick Halloween III: Season of the Witch, which deviated from the story that was established by the first two movies.  

The actress took a break from the franchise before she portrayed Strode in 1998’s Halloween H20: 20 Years Later and its sequel Halloween: Resurrection, in which her character was killed off.

Scout Taylor-Compton took up the role in the 2007 remake of the original Halloween film and its 2009 sequel, both of which were directed by Rob Zombie. 

Curtis eventually returned to playing Strode in 2018’s Halloween, which ignored the events of all of the sequels in the film series.

The feature received mainly positive reviews, with many critics describing the project as a return to form.

Halloween Kills was made available to the public on Friday, and the performer’s work was praised by reviewers.
