Hor­ror leg­end Jamie hates scary movies

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

HOR­ROR babe Jamie Lee Cur­tis has re­vealed she hates scary movies – de­spite mak­ing her name in the clas­sic Hal­loween flick.

The 56-year-old ( above) also ap­peared in slasher flicks The Fog and Prom Night but has ad­mit­ted they’re not her cup of tea.

She said: “I have great re­spect for hor­ror films even though I don’t per­son­ally like them.

“I scare very eas­ily, and there’s noth­ing about that feel­ing that I like.

“It’s not some­thing I’d pay money for at the cin­ema.”

But Jamie – who is star­ring in E4’s new com­edy Scream Queens – ad­mit­ted she owes her suc­cess to her role in the 1978 hor­ror block­buster.

She said: “I wouldn’t be here now with­out Hal­loween. I owe every­thing to di­rec­tor John Car­pen­ter, who some­how saw some­thing in me.”
