Jamie Lee Curtis breaks down in tears after receiving amazing messages from Halloween fans

Jamie Lee Curtis has been moved to tears after Halloween fans thanked her for her legacy.


The iconic actor is finally saying farewell to Laurie Strode now that Halloween Ends has finally been released.

It was the role that made her a household name more than four decades ago and it' all coming to an end.


As the emotional press tour continues, the actor has had her fair share of tear-jerking moments, but her recent encounter with dedicated Halloween fans will have you blubbering like an infant.

Halloween shared a video to its Instagram, which showed the 63-year-old actor receiving video tributes from fans all over the country.

The actor started to break down in tears not far into the video tribute and was initially speechless.

However, the veteran actor finally mustered enough power to thank her fans for their touching worlds.


She said: "It's obviously hard, all of it is hard saying goodbye and nobody wants to say that. So, I won't say that. I am just going to say thank you." 

She continued. "It's a legacy that I'm very, very proud is attached to me and one that I treat with a lot of respect. So, Happy Halloween everybody, God bless you all.

"Thank you for everything."

While the actor has hit some impressive milestones in her career, her legacy was immortalised outside the famous TCL Chinese Theatre, with her hands and feet cemented into the ground.

Shortly after the ceremonious event, Curtis reflected on the franchise and the impact Laurie Strode has had on audiences.

Curtis told Variety: “The universal understanding of Laurie Strode is that as this original ‘final girl’ she never gave up, always pushing through no matter what. It is beyond comprehension that that is my legacy.”

Curtis also wrote an essay in PEOPLE noting that she will ‘miss’ Laurie.


She said: “I have tried over the years to inculcate those aspects of Laurie's character into my own, to carry that mantle and represent survivors of all types of unimaginable horror and trauma, pain and suffering, who stand up to tyranny and oppression — real and imagined.”

Curtis added: “Life is scary. But Laurie taught me that life can also be beautiful, filled with love and art and life! Thank you all for MINE!”
