True Lies Reunion: Arnold Schwarzenegger comforts emotional Jamie Lee Curtis at hand and footprint ceremony
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: An overwhelmed Jamie Lee Curtis was honored on Wednesday, October 12 at her hand-and-footprint ceremony at TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, California, and her 'True Lies' co-star Arnold Schwarzenegger was there to cheer her up.
The 63-year-old Halloween franchise star got teary eyes at the event while sitting next to her husband Christopher Guest, 74. She was later comforted by Schwarzenegger who played her husband in James Cameron's iconic movie about 28 years ago. The two posed together and even shared a kiss.
For the honor ceremony, Curtis opted for a cream pantsuit over a white top, which she paired with stylish nude kitten heels. The cinema icon complemented the look with wire-rim eyeglasses as well as a classic silver watch. The 75-year-old action legend sported jeans, a dark blazer, and a black button-down shirt.
The TCL Chinese Theatre handprints-footprints tribute has been one of the most prestigious honor ceremonies in the Hollywood film fraternity for the past 95 years. The long list of honorees includes legendary names including Joan Crawford, Judy Garland, Bette Davis, Ava Gardner, Elizabeth Taylor, and Sophia Loren.
At the event, Curtis was accompanied by her husband who matched his wife’s classy look in a sporting navy suit and a pair of sunglasses. She was also cheered up by her gorgeous daughters Ruby, 26, and Annie, 35.
Curtis was so thrilled to reunite with her former co-star at the ceremony that she told Entertainment Tonight, she is open to portraying Helen in the sequel of the blockbuster spy flick and she will even ask Cameron to come on board to direct the movie. "It just shows that we love each other. Arnold couldn't have been sweeter," the actress told ET. "I walked up to him and said, 'Dude, why aren't we doing another movie?'"
Apart from her family and Arnold, the actor and activist were also supported by other A-list friends including her Halloween franchise co-star Kyle Richards, 53, who talked recently and spoke about what it's been like working with Curtis.
Earlier this week, Jamie discussed the honor ceremony while making a guest appearance on Tuesday's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live on ABC. "It's very exciting," she said. During the show, Jimmy asked her, if she has any plans to take off her shoes for the impression. Reacting to this, Curtis said, "They ask you to leave your shoes."
"The barefoot thing also is a little weird. Also, the concrete shrinks which is why all of us think that old-timey movie stars had really, really tiny feet," she said
