Jamie Lee Curtis in John Carpenter's Halloween. Curtis kicked off the popular archetype of the Final Girl in horror movies, who isn't totally feminine and is usually more cautious than other women in the film. This is in stark contrast to her mother, Janet Leigh's role in Psycho, in which her character is killed off in the film's first act.
In 2008, Jamie confiding, "I think I have finally found what I hope beauty is, or at least, beauty as it applies to me." That beauty: comfortable self-acceptance. She told CBSNews in 2003, "To me, perfection is being happy with who you are. Look at me, I’m happy.”
