Jamie Lee Curtis calls herself a ‘dot connector’ as she glues her handprints

Jamie Lee Curtis reflected on how “so many beautiful dots have connected” in her life, as she laid her handprints on the cement at the TCL Chinese Theatre.

The 63-year-old actress became emotional as she thanked her family and friends and said how “proud” she was to be a part of their lives.

Curtis, whose career spans nearly five decades, is known for her roles in Hollywood horror films and is widely regarded as the “priceless queen”.

Wednesday’s handprint ceremony comes before her latest horror film, Halloween Ends, hits theaters on Friday.

In the film, she took on the role of Laurie Strode, after first playing the role in 1978 at the age of 20.

The character Laurie, created and written by John Carpenter and Debra Hill, became a defining role in Curtis’ extended career.

She was joined at the event by actors Melanie Griffith and Arnold Schwarzenegger, who said “millions of people” would be inspired by her achievements.

In his own speech, Curtis boasted of being a “dot connector” and a “weapon of mass promotion”.

“Life is good. I have friends. I feel important in their lives,” she said.

“I am connecting the dots from personal, professional and charitable, starting to speak, starting to say what I think.”

She added: “Say what you mean, what you say. Don’t talk nonsense, but make sense.”

Talking about her horror career, she said: “Halloween (the movie) changed my life. It gave me a career.

“Obviously I watched a few horror movies and managed to get away with a lot of those beautiful dots that connect.

“(But) it also gives me a creative life that I have wanted since I was a young girl.

“If I had a camera here and I had taken all of these, all those dots would add up to this moment here.”

She added: “I am proud to be the daughter of Janet Lee and Tony Curtis. I am proud to be Christopher’s wife (and) I am very proud to be Annie and Ruby’s parents.

“And I’m really proud to be a friend of so many people who share everything with me.

“Good, bad, hard, soft, playful, tragic. Because it’s a beautiful part of life. We are here together, we must help each other.

“Never mind. God bless you all.”
