LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Jamie Lee Curtis took a trip down memory lane on Saturday when she dressed up as a cheerleader to host the Children Affected By AIDS Foundation’s 17th Annual Dream Halloween Event.
“I was [a cheerleader],” Jamie Lee told Access Hollywood of the costume inspired by her former pastime. “Oh — I’ve got the moves! I’m just not gonna throw them all down here because that would be frightening.”
Jamie Lee seemingly knows how to keep her relationship fresh – the 51-year-old star has been married to actor Christopher Guest for nearly 26 years. However, the animated actress was quick to squelch the notion that her husband would enjoy her cheerleading getup after the event.
“Oh please. This is hardly hot,” she told Access of her costume. “I was Josie and the Pussycats once and that looked hot. There [were] some heels with that and a little tail!
“This [costume] is a little staid if you will. And it’s also polyester,” Jamie Lee laughed. “With all due respect to cheerleaders across the world, this stuff is thick and not particularly tactilely pleasant!”
Although she may dislike wearing polyester costumes, the “You Again” star certainly enjoys watching them waltz across the dance floor – the actress has become a staple at the “Dancing with the Stars” stage.
“I’m so into [‘Dancing with the Stars’],” Jamie Lee raved. “It’s crazy town! I’m completely into it. I’m completely into it!”
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Jamie Lee got hooked on the ABC dancing competition while showing support for her friend, actress and Season 11 “Dancing” contender, Jennifer Grey.
“The idea of a couple of my friends sitting there with me every week would make me feel a lot better,” Jamie Lee told Access. “I’m happy to be able to be [Jennifer’s] support.”
Jennifer, 50, has hovered near the top of the leaderboard since the competition began in September, but received a rather harsh critique from the show’s judges on Monday following her shaky Paso Doble performance with professional partner Derek Hough.
“I felt the [judges’] comments were a little pointed, if you will,” Jamie Lee told Access. “I joined the chorus of booing [in the audience], but I also understand that that’s a little bit the nature of the beast.
“Jennifer weathered [the criticism] beautifully and she is going to be fantastic,” she added. “She is representing women over 50 and killing it and I’m just so proud of her. Thrilled for her!”
