Jamie Lee Curtis Thought She Was Going To Be Fired During The First HALLOWEEN
Jamie Lee Curtis is one of the most recognizable faces in the Halloween franchise, so it’s surprising to hear the actress thought she was going to be fired from the first film. Curtis shared with EW a funny story that turned out just to be her paranoia more than anything:
I remember the phone rang in my apartment and my roommate Tina said, ‘Jamie, John Carpenter’s on the phone. It scared me, because I didn’t know if he was going to fire me. Often I’d heard people got fired. He was on the other end of the phone and he said, ‘Hey darling, it’s John. I just want to tell you I thought today went great. I‘m so happy.'
What a relief it must’ve been to receive news the exact opposite of what she was expecting! It’s hard to believe Curtis had any real reason to expect she was losing her gig considering how great she was in the film. Hopefully she’s just as good in the new one! Halloween is in theaters October 19th.
