Actress Jamie Lee Claims She’s Not A Hollywood Hypocrite on Guns

Jamie Lee Curtis is not happy with Fox News.

Why? Because the right-leaning news network called out the 59-year-old actress Wednesday for being a Hollywood hypocrite when it comes to the Second Amendment.

Curtis is “one of several Hollywood actors who use firearms in their films while preaching against them away from the set,” observed Fox News.

In an interview with USA Today, Curtis called the Fox report “nonsense.”

“That’s a bunch of nonsense,” she said Wednesday evening after reviewing the article. “It was just silly, because they were trying to make a point without ever asking me what I really think. And what I think might surprise them.”

Curtis went on to clarify her stance.

“I fully support the Bill of Rights. And fully support the Second Amendment. And have absolutely no problem with people owning firearms if they have been trained, licensed, a background check has been conducted, a pause button has been pushed to give time for that process to take place. And they have to renew their license just like we do with automobiles – which are weapons also,” she explained.

Okay.  Not bad, right?  For a Tinseltown thespian that’s pretty pro-gun, especially compared to someone like Liam Nesson, who once called U.S. gun ownership an [Expletive] disgrace.

If that was all she said then one could argue that the Fox News report was indeed “nonsense” or maybe, at the very least, a little heavy-handed in its characterization of Curtis as someone who isn’t pro-gun.  But Curtis also had more to say on the matter.

“I am vocal about common-sense gun safety and gun laws,” Curtis said. “For instance, I fully support an assault weapon ban, I fully support a bump stock ban.”

Ugh. Well, there goes her credibility.

It makes one wonder if she knows what a so-called “assault weapon” really is.  She probably does not.  Because when shooting her latest slasher film “Halloween” she told producers that she wanted her character, Laurie Strode, to use guns that were “intended for self-defense,” which apparently meant no black rifles.

“They knew that Laurie was going to be someone who used firearms,” said Curtis. “And I think there were myriad types of firearms that could have been used in the movie. I was very clear with the filmmakers that she used the weapons (that) were intended for self-defense for her and her family.”

The AR-15 platform is an optimal choice for defending the homestead, (particularly if one is hellbent on fending off a violent cretin like Michael Myers).  Curtis is assuming that firearms designated “assault weapons” by ignorant and hoplophobic politicians aren’t suited for self-defense situations. In doing so she’s displaying her ignorance on the issue.  Call it contempt prior to investigation (ironically the same thing she accused Fox News of doing with its report on her anti-gun position).  Ms. Curtis, there is a reason why ARs are the best selling rifles in America.  And it’s not just because they’re fun to shoot.

    I was just saying to my son as we watched the latest Halloween film why she didn’t have an AR or AK, I figured it was something like this. Why do people allow movie stars to try and sway their opinions on any subject. They are allowing themselves to listen to people that are not the people they portray in a movie. Chances are they are narcissistic and yes even hypocritical and do not represent regular folks and never will.

    Somewhere along the way, Hollywood actors/actresses have been mistaken for people of importance.

  • JJ Karn December 19, 2018, 1:14 pm

    Remember, actors are nothing more people who get paid to play “dress-up and pretend,” a pastime that most of us gave up when we stopped being children. As their job involves a willful divergence from reality, it should come as no surprise that their opinions on real-world issues demonstrate that same divergence.

  • Bobs your uncle October 16, 2018, 7:31 pm

    Whenever I have questions about firearms I try to get information from a Hollywood actor or politician, after all they know whats best for Americans because they pretend to be one in movies and on TV

  • paul howell October 15, 2018, 3:45 pm

    why you should see Jamie Lee handle this Winchester model 73, why it would make the Duke himself blush, Dar Har Dar Har, Pilgrim…

  • walter stephens October 13, 2018, 10:09 am

    I’d still ride bang her like a marching band drum.

  • FirstStateMark October 12, 2018, 9:55 pm

    Great body but nothing upstairs. Someone needs to ask her to define an assault weapon.

  • Hondo October 12, 2018, 6:46 pm

    I remember back in the day when Jamie was hot, now she’s just a liberal retard that can’t get by on her looks anymore and spews utter bullshit trying to somehow be relevant again.
    Go away honey because nobody gives a crap about you anymore,

    “I fully support the Bill of Rights. And fully support the First Amendment . And have absolutely no problem with people and freedom of speech if they have been trained, licensed, a background check has been conducted, a pause button has been pushed to give time for that process to take place. And they have to renew their license just like we do with automobiles – which are weapons also,” she explained.

    There I fixed it. Now how crazy does it sound?

    • DocLoch October 12, 2018, 10:20 pm

      You have the right idea here, except that unlike ALL of the other 10 amendments in the Bill of Rights, the 2nd is the only one that says: “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED!” Look up that last word “infringed.” Either the founding fathers who were stupid, or the modern day USSA comrade is. Even the supposedly intelligent Justice Scalia FAILED when he said in Heller vs. DC that the 2nd amendment is “subject to reasonable restriction.” Intent and meaning are clear in this very unique amendment, and Curtis reveals her total idiocy by her statement. She is not a hypocrite, she is a fool. Fools should stay home and be taken care of by their families and not allowed out without escort!

  • Martingard October 12, 2018, 3:24 pm

    She’s getting kind of old and needs to keep her name in the news so that she might be recognized in her next “B” movie. Look at me, look at me, don’t you remember me?

  • T October 12, 2018, 3:02 pm

    This is bubble life at it’s finest.

    Didn’t see anything in the bill of right’s about operating trains, planes, or automobiles all which are a privilege , not a right.
    Self protection…that’s a different story.

  • MJ October 12, 2018, 1:59 pm

    Entertainers and celebrities please stay out of politics, you didn’t get famous because of your political views. Otherwise you’ll be another hack that thinks of what they say they matters. Celebrities opinions are just like lines in a script, chose your next role carefully. Your business is an optional pastime. The “do not watch” list is real.

  • Peter Brown October 12, 2018, 1:08 pm

    It’s no breakfast for this man after seeing wayyy too many photos of that……, yeah.
    Whatever else it is, it is a hypocrite and far-left extremist. And, it is as truthful as your average yellow Dog democrap. The way I view such trash is that if it’s out of the bowels of hokeywood, it should be trusted as far as one would enjoy throwing it.

    • Justista October 12, 2018, 4:57 pm

      What ever it is is right. She was born a hermaphrodite. Fully equipped for what ever came her way.
      That’s not a joke. It’s a fact.

  • Robert Blalock October 12, 2018, 12:14 pm

    You know she belongs with Rosie odumbutt and crew. It’s ok to have armed guard’s but us average person can’t have a permit it’s all the same thing

  • ro October 12, 2018, 11:19 am

    perhaps when we billet troops in her house she will be a supporter of the 3rd amendment as well….

    come on….let’s train and license everyone for all our rights before they are allowed to be used

  • archangel October 12, 2018, 10:59 am

    It’s just another Uneducated ( AKA stupid) Hollywood slacker helping push an agenda where they only offer a portion of the information needed to make an informed decision.
    An AR-15 is no more an “assault weapon” than any other firearm is.
    We need to rename the AR-15 into the HD-15 for “Home Defense” or “Heavy Duty”

    • Robert Blalock October 12, 2018, 12:16 pm

      Archangel you. Are right hd 15 sounds nice

  • SuperG October 12, 2018, 10:30 am

    Hypocrisy and Socialism, the only two planks in the Democrat stage.

  • Dr Motown October 12, 2018, 8:32 am

    Another loon….I saw a clip from her on “The View” where she was trying to equate her recent slasher movie to the Kavanaugh case, even though the script was written long ago

  • TexDad October 12, 2018, 8:05 am

    I’m not sure she understands the meaning of the term “fully support”.

  • Jay October 12, 2018, 7:37 am

    Every time I have doubts that aliens have visited this Earth. An idiot in Hollywood opens their mouth and removes any doubt!

  • Nick M October 12, 2018, 5:26 am

    ” if they have been trained, licensed, a background check has been conducted ”

    So she is opposed to the second amendment. This is a privilege she speaks of, not a right.

  • Gregory D Smith October 12, 2018, 3:57 am

    Just another lying skank-just one more part of the 98% of hollyweird loons…

    • MB October 12, 2018, 7:04 am

      Bingo…. nailed it.

  • Martin B October 11, 2018, 4:37 pm

    “Common sense” is Hollywood code for “I’m a star and I have armed security protecting me everywhere I go. but you little people can go fuck yourselves.” Just another way to qualify for a Bloomberg paycheck while still trying to keep some dumb fans onside. Not a friend.
