Jamie Lee Curtis honored her late mother, Janet Leigh, at the costume party premiere for her film, Halloween Kills, held at TCL Chinese Theatre last night (Oct 12). Curtis arrived on the red carpet dressed as her mother's iconic character, Marion Crane from Psycho.
"I am honoring my beautiful late mama, Janet Leigh, but... it's a little more meta than that," Curtis told ET's Matt Cohen. "I am actually going as Scarlett Johansson as Janet Leigh in the movie Hitchcock. So it's meta because we never knew what color Janet Leigh's dress was because it was a black-and-white movie."
"But now because of the Hitchcock movie, we know it was pale blue," she continued, adding how she made sure to nail the costume. "And mommy did a little DIY art project the other day. I was worried you would see this and just think I looked like a '50s housewife. So I thought, you know, maybe I need a little bloody shower curtain."
