The actor described the online article, which said her "on-screen actions stand in contrast to her real-life persona as an advocate for gun control", as "just silly" in an interview with USA Today published Wednesday.

The new Halloween film, set 40 years after the original, features Curtis returning as Laurie Strode, who has spent the intervening decades constantly preparing for the day she will face Michael Myers again. Curtis is joined in the film by Judy Greer who plays Karen Strode, the daughter of Curtis' character, and Andi Matichak (Orange Is the New Black, Underground) who plays Allyson, the granddaughter of Laurie Strode.

Curtis acknowledged she wants assault weapons and bump stocks to be banned.

Jamie Lee Curtis has clapped back at Fox News for its misguided tweet about her views on gun control. Although if Jamie Lee Curtis is ever being stalked by a vicious serial killer in real life, she too, may opt to reach for a gun. And fully support the Second Amendment. Because she's clearly not acting in a movie. But she's also appeared in films such as "True Lies", "Virus", "Halloween II" and "Blue Steel" where she uses firearms multiple times.

But Curtis went on to say that she's not a supporter of banning guns altogether. "And they have to renew their license just like we do with automobiles - which are weapons also". Not that of her character.

While it might only utilize a handful of notes, the theme to Halloween is one of the most recognizable pieces of music from any movie, which was crafted by the original film's co-writer and director John Carpenter. "I'm an actress who's in slasher movies", she said plainly. She added: "If I had made my career as a pacifist actor, I would never have worked, ever".
