She began by elaborating on her own ideas about gun ownership.

“I fully support the Bill of Rights,” Curtis said. “And fully support the Second Amendment.”

She said she is in favor of allowing those who have been “trained, licensed” and properly vetted to purchase weapons for their own protection, indicating that she believes her character in the upcoming horror film behaved appropriately.

“I think there were myriad types of firearms that could have been used in the movie,” Curtis said. “I was very clear with the filmmakers that she used the weapons intended for self-defense for her and her family.”

On a more practical note, Curtis said that she does not have the luxury of injecting her own views into the scripts she accepts.

“I have to be responsible for my own personal choices in my own personal life,” she said. “But I am an actor for hire. And honestly, if I had made my career as a pacifist actor, I would never have worked, ever.”
