With a career spanning five different decades, it is beyond doubt why Jamie Lee Curtis She was the recipient of the Venice Film Festival’s Lifetime Achievement Award this year, even though she couldn’t believe it. The actress doesn’t lack confidence in her acting ability, but more than that, she finds it strange to be honored in such a way when she still feels so young inside. The 62-year-old said, “I feel so alive, like I am this 14-year-old who is just starting my life. That’s how I wake up every day with that kind of joy and purpose.” Hollywood Reporter. However, when he feels that has been the highlight of his career, it all comes back to his most iconic role.
Jamie Lee Curtis couldn’t have had the worst moment of her career, commenting instead, “I don’t have one. Everyone has hard days at work. My worst day at work doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface.” That’s how hard other people actually work. That’s why I refuse to answer your question.” However, when asked what characterizes his career, he was surprisingly quick to extract a very recent memory from his final filming Halloween in 2018.
“When I was making 2018 Halloween, the last scene in the movie that I had to shoot was a moment when Laurie Strode was sitting alone in a pickup truck, watching Michael Myers drive to a Supermax prison where He’ll spend the rest of his life.. And she’s looking at this person who has overcome her 40 years of trauma. And the scene was just me in a truck. When we went to shoot it, it’s just my little truck There are about 14 cameras and cranes around it and lights and a crew. I was preparing for my work in my trailer, which was going to be emotional, cathartic. It was described as a moment where Laurie made the first move. Bar played again after 40 years. I’m someone who likes name tags because everyone knows my name, but often I don’t know anyone else’s. And so, whenever I start a project, I Ask everyone to wear a name tag. And that was the end of the movie now. This is me. I was shooting my last scene before going home to come back with my family. Near the set. When he arrived, the entire crew stood in silent solidarity with folded hands behind their backs. And everyone had put a name tag. And the name tag said, “We’re Laurie Strode.” What they were saying was, “We’re with you, Jamie, in this moment. And we know there’s nothing we can do to help you because you do this moment of work alone in a pickup truck. We believe in you, because we are you.” I must tell you, this could be the high point of my career.”
Jamie Lee Curtis is set to appear in the sequel to that film, Halloween Kills, which released this month. She isn’t stopping there either, as she also revealed that she is finally able to bring a decade-long pet project to the screen which she cited as her dream project. “I just found a project I’ve been working on for more than 10 years, which is the story of the birth of the high five, born to a closed, gay, young black baseball player named Glenn Burke, who lives in Los Angeles.” Played and invented for the Angeles Dodgers [that form of celebration] 2 October 1977 at Dodger Stadium. I have been trying to tell his story for a long time. I think we’re going to be able to do this right now at Netflix with Ryan Murphy Television.”
For someone who is now in her 60s, Curtis certainly has the longing for life she’s seen in her career so far, and receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award hasn’t slowed her down in any way. Going to do.
