The Sci-Fi Horror Flop Jamie Lee Curtis Regrets Filming

As the daughter of legendary stars Janet Leigh and Tony Curtis, Jamie Lee Curtis never settled for being Hollywood royalty

The actress became a major horror Scream Queen in the 1970s and 1980s, making her film debut in nothing less than John Carpenter's seminal slasher "Halloween."

Curtis also did disco moves in "Prom Night," worked with Carpenter once again in "The Fog," then starred in "Terror Train" and the 1981 sequel "Halloween II."

Curtis then transitioned into roles in Hollywood studio projects, where her charm and intelligence made her perfect for comedies

She co-starred in "Trading Places," "Grandview, U.S.A.," and the title role of "A Fish Called Wanda" among other films.

The actress has always been a candid interview subject, even telling The New Yorker that she certainly wouldn't have been cast in "Halloween" if her mother hadn't been the star of "Psycho."

She admitted, "I'm never going to pretend that I just got that on my own, like I'm just a little girl from nowhere getting it. Clearly, I had a leg up."

Her brutal honesty is also why she acknowledged her regret for one particular box-office disaster.
