Curtis' "on-screen actions stand in contrast to her real-life persona as an advocate for gun control", Fox News wrote in the article 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. Although some have expressed disappointment that Curtis didn't stick to her beliefs and turn down a role that depicted gun violence, others were quick to point out that Laurie Strode is likely to have the proper permits. "For instance, I fully support an assault weapon ban, I fully support a bump stock ban".
Twitter users by the thousands are pointing out that playing a fictional character with morals that may differ from her own is Curtis's job as an actress. "And fully support the Second Amendment", she said. "I was very clear with the filmmakers that she used the weapons (that) were intended for self-defense for her and her family". Using new technology, we just brought them back to life - we put new life into it, really. The writer draws the conclusion that this shows Curtis "isn't entirely anti-gun". Not that of her character. Whether or not popular films are too violent is a decision each individual has to make for themselves, but as Curtis notes, if she only played nice, nonconfrontational characters in Hollywood, she probably wouldn't work very much.
The film will hit the theaters on October 19.
"The strategy of the soundtrack was I took my cues from the director, David Gordon Green, who in spotting sessions told me, "I want something here, I want something there, '" the filmmaker confirmed". She added: "If I had made my career as a pacifist actor, I would never have worked, ever".
