Another year has gone by and the post about cult siren Jamie Lee Curtis is still not in the Top Ten so here is another re - post on her 58th birthday.
I have already done a number of posts on ultimate cult siren JaMILF Lee Curtis a.k.a. Freezeframe a.k.a. The Body : the original post which mostly contains pictures with links to animated GIFs , one post with all the pictures I could find and a re - posted version with a few GIFs added.
The last few years I have re - posted the same post again and again and I always said that I might post more animated GIFs in the future. Well, that future is NOW because I have found a lot of high quality animated GIFs from Jamie Lee Curtis´ spectacular strip on TRUE LIES - and some other choice scenes - in the last months. In fact there are over 80 new GIFs I found and since I can´t possibly fir them all into one post I will start with the best. Which means the ones that have the widest pictures and I may put the ones which are cut into next year´s post. I will of course try to put the entire striptease in this post which might mean including a few cropped GIFs. Anyway, we´ll see how far we can get with that. Enjoy !
At the beginning of her career the daughter of Janet Leigh and Tony Curtis was known for her impressive set of lungs, as one of the best known Scream Queens and her appearances in various horror movies like PROM NIGHT or HALLOWEEN. Another John Carpenter thriller, 1980's THE FOG also featured Jamie Lee and to this day it´s one of the classic horror movies of all time. She
reprised her starring role in Halloween II in 1981, a franchise to which she would return in HALLOWEEN H20 - TWENTY YEARS LATER ( 1998 ) and HALLOWEEN RESURRECTION ( 2002 ) .
But Jamie Lee Curtis wanted something more out of life than to star in horror movies ( not that there´s something wrong with that ) and to be more than just an actress known for her screaming techniques. Later on she was still known for her impressive set of lungs .... but in a different context. To be precise : in a 34C - 22 - 34 measurements context. When she finally did lose her " Scream Queen " title, it was in exchange for the name " The Body " ( which is also Elle MacPherson's nickname ) thanks to Jamie Lee´s revealing roles in TRADING PLACES and 1985's PERFECT.
After a string of made - for - TV movies in the early '80s, she turned heads as a prostitute in the Eddie Murphy comedy, 1983's TRADING PLACES ( Soldiers of Fortune in german " DIE GLÜCKSRITTER " - don't ask me why ) , for which she won the BAFTA Award for Best Supporting Actress. When she went topless she cemented herself a fan base that would last for years. Not only because she decided to disrobe, but because she had a fantastic body, that she was often referred to as " Freeze Frame " ( a nod to all the VCR users' use of the pause button on certain scenes ).
Jamie Lee proved her comedic ability with her starring role in 1988's A FISH CALLED WANDA with John Cleese ( where she proved she still got it ! ) and both worked together again on FIERCE CREATURES in 1997.
She continued on the comedy path co - starring with Richard Lewis in the sitcom ANYTHING BUT LOVE, until 1992 and her role garnered her a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Series. The rest of the '90s were marked by a slew of movie roles, most notably in 1990's BLUE STEEL, 1991's MY GIRL, 1994's TRUE LIES - which reminded viewers yet again how magnificent her body is when she stripped like a pro for Arnold and garnered her a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Motion Picture and an American Comedy Award for Funniest Actress in a Motion Picture - and 1999's VIRUS based on the comic series by DARK HORSE. It is a pretty decent movie and at least the Germans didn´t cut out 10 minutes from the opening scene like in the other DARK HORSE movie BARB WIRE.
In 2001 Jamie starred in THE TAILOR OF PANAMA alongside Pierce Brosnan, who was the lucky guy who got to fondle her breasts and I´m not sure if that was in the original script. You know which scene I´m talking about.
What is really remarkable about Jamie is that she did her best striptease very late in her career in the Schwarzenegger flick TRUE LIES and you can say what you want about the Governator but his taste in women is truly impeccable. Ann Margret, Brigitte Nielsen, Sharon Stone, Vanessa Williams, Gina Gershon, Rae Dawn Chong, Alyssa Milano, Olivia D´Abo, Kelly Preston, Robin Tunney, Uma Thurman, Jamie Lee Curtis, Tia Carrere - the list of his female co - stars is like a WHO`S WHO of hot actresses.
Speaking about exotic sexbomb Tia Carrere : do you remember those tight tight riding pants she used to wear like a second skin on RELIC HUNTER ?
I never understood why the series was not more successful since Tia wore sexy outfits, took off her clothes a few times and showed lots of skin.
But I guess it was because the scripts were not that good. Well, that and her assistant / girlie man Nigel, the americans always have an inferiority complex when it comes to people from Britain and the writers are no exception. So they didn´t have the cojones to make an english man cool.
Some of her best scenes are in the comedy HIGH SCHOOL HIGH opposite Jon Lovitz and really, Tia Carrere is the only reason to watch that flick.
Back to Jamie Lee Curtis, she even won a poll for best striptease in 2007.
Jamie Lee Curtis’ striptease in ‘True Lies’ polled best ever
The ’scream queen’ was followed by Oscar winner Kim Basinger for her ‘ tremendous sex appeal ’ in ‘91 / 2 Weeks’. Spanish star Salma Hayek ( From Dusk Till Dawn ) and Elisha Cuthbert ( The Girl Next Door ) secured 3rd and 4th places respectively, reports Contactmusic. Natalie Portman rounded of the top five, at the fifth spot for role in ‘ Closer ’.
The top six list of best film striptease are as follows:
1. Jamie Lee Curtis ( True Lies )
2. Kim Basinger ( 9 1 / 2 Weeks )
3. Salma Hayek ( From Dusk Till Dawn )
4. Elisha Cuthbert ( The Girl Next Door )
5. Natalie Portman ( Closer )
6. Demi Moore ( Striptease )
Now I´m not so sure about that list since neither Natalie Portman nor Elisa Cuthbert are on my list ( haven´t seen their movies ) and I would even exclude Kim Basinger. If I had to do a top 10 strip list it would be :
1. Halle Berry ( Last Boy Scout )
2. Demi Moore ( Striptease )
3. Erika Eleniak ( Under Siege )
4. Jamie Lee Curtis ( True Lies )
5. Salma Hayek ( From Dusk Till Dawn )
6. Elizabeth Berkley ( Showgirls )
7. Claudia Christian ( The Hidden )
8. Pamela Anderson ( Barb Wire )
9. Kathleen Kinmont ( The Corporate Ladder )
10. Jessica Biel ( Powder Blue )
And one of my goals in life is to do posts on TALES FROM THE KRYPTONIAN on all of the sexy nominees on that best striptease list.
Now I would like to offer you an indepth analysis of TRUE LIES revealing the multiple layers of sociopolitical / cinematoanthropologic multidimensionality of the movie but as always, John Kenneth Muir has already done that more eloquently than I ever could :
TRUE LIES does feel very contemporary in the sense that it accurately forecasts the 21st century ascent of Middle - Eastern terrorism against the United States. And it certainly predicts a powerful, unaccountable bureaucracy in the U.S. Government as the response to such terrorist attacks. Here, that organization is " Omega Sector ", the " last line of defense ". Leading Omega Sector is none other than Charlton Heston as "Spencer Trilby", and once more, his right - wing reputation carries a brand of symbolic power and weight. ( He basically plays Nick Fury. )
Indeed, TRUE LIES works primarily as a kind of time capsule of 1994's cultural concerns, echoing the conservative tide that swept Newt Gingrich into power as Speaker of the House of Representatives.
You can read the full post right here and I´m going to end this post with one of my favorite parts of the movie right before the striptease. Jamie is on her way to the motel room to plant the microchip and seeing herself in the mirror she decides to sex up her outfit. Which she does by ripping off parts of her dress covering her chest and pouring water over her head.
Now stuff like this works only in movies and if you try to do this in the real world you would most definitely totally ruin that dress and I bet if you just pour some water over your head your hair will probably not look like you just came from the hairdresser. But that´s the suspension of disbelieve in movies and we wouldn´t have it any other way.
And before closing the post and letting you re - watch HALLOWEEN, THE FOG, TRUE LIES or any other cult movie starring Jamie Lee Curtis I wanted to mention she´s also a bestselling author of Children´s Books and invented a new kind of diaper. Yes, a woman of many talents.
"My breasts are beautiful, and I gotta tell you, they've gotten a lot of attention for what is relatively short screen time." - Jamie Lee Curtis
Yes, I know, these cult siren posts are not so popular as my more comic related posts but they show up more frequent on search engines and somehow I got to bring new readers to the blog. That´s my motto : come for the massitas, stay for the comics. So these are all the new GIFs I wanted to add this year and maybe I will post the rest next year. Usually I don´t cover the birthdays of the day on the Jamie Lee Curtis post but I do have videos for two of them. Maybe I can do the other ones in some future post but for now apologies to Mariel Hemingway ( 55 ), Victoria Paris ( 56 ), Terry Gilliam ( 76 ), Robert Vaughn and Rodney Dangerfield.
Fellow Avengers Scarlett Johansson and Mark Ruffalo both celebrate a birthday Today ( Scarlett her 32nd and Mark his 49th ) but I only have a video for Scarlett. I thought about posting the video of Team Iron Man on Jimmy Kimmel but since Mark Ruffalo is not part of that team it didn´t seem appropriate. And I don´t want to post just a random Hulk video.
Speaking about random, while Roy Thomas - who turns 76 - did write the X- Men he had nothing to do with The Dark Phoenix Saga. I just want to put Comicbookgirl19´s latest edition of the epic X - Men´s history on the blog as soon as possible. These videos are great - especially for all the people out there who only know Marvel´s merry mutants from the movies - and I want to see more of them. So my reason for pimping them is very selfish but if the intro doesn´t give you goosebumps you have no right to call yourself an X - Man fan. Heck, you can´t even call yourself a comic fan.
You never know if things like these are mere coincidence or if it was my subconsciousness at work but a few days ago I came across a documentary on John Carpenter who had a big influence on Jamie Lee Curtis´ career.
Judging from the comments these sexy banana public prank videos are quite popular but I can only post them in the riskier cult siren posts.
And since this post was mainly about Jamie Lee Curtis´striptease here is another video bei the best rumpshaker on the internet, Dajea Monroe or Twerk Monroe ( all I wanna do is zooma zoom zoom on her boom boom ) who could easily fill her boots without breaking a sweat. If Jamie wore boots. Too bad she has retired. In any case she really embodies the lyrics :
Go left, right, left, right, move that body from side to side
oh girl, don’t get nervous, shake that sh** like Jamie Lee Curtis
go left, right, left, right, move that body from side to side
oh girl, don’t be nervous
‘cause every single part of you to me is perfect

Everybody knows that I have very big breasts. Throughout my career I was very well known for my perfect body and for baring my breasts in films so I needed to keep that fantastic figure up for my work. I have to be careful before I become this caricature of a nymphomanic MILF with big knockers.
