"Curtis's on-screen actions stand in contrast to her real-life persona as an advocate for gun control - one of several Hollywood actors who use firearms in their films while preaching against them away from the set", the Fox News article states. 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.

Fox News probably wasn't expecting the blowback it's getting in a thread on Twitter after it called attention in a tweet to the fact that Jamie Lee Curtis is seen brandishing weapons in her latest film, "Halloween", even though she is an advocate for gun control.

Curtis told USA Today that the story, which came out Wednesday afternoon, was nonsense, adding, "They were trying to make a point without ever asking me what I really think".

Yeah, so to break that down, Fox News was claiming that because Curtis' character Laurie Strode uses guns in a horror movie, that Curtis' own personal views on guns were hypocritical. "For instance, I fully support an assault weapon ban, I fully support a bump stock ban. And they have to renew their license just like we do with automobiles - which are weapons also".

But Curtis' personal views on guns are exactly that - hers. Not that of her character. Because she's clearly not acting in a movie.
