Actor Jamie Lee Curtis has gotten lots of praise for the latest installment in the beloved Halloween film series, Halloween Ends, but one person's kudos have stood above all the rest: LA Lakers player LeBron James.
Halloween Ends, the final chapter in the long-running horror series, came out last weekend, and among those who raced to the cineplex to see it was apparently James.
He tweeted his praise of the movie as well as a shout-out to Curtis.
"Halloween Ends was so GOOD!!!! @jamieleecurtis you're such a LEGEND & BADA**"
The tweet quickly went viral, racking up more than 23,000 likes and well over 3,000 retweets--enough to land it in Curtis' feed, who posted a screenshot to her Instagram account along with her own effusive praise of James.
Curtis captioned her post:
"My King! @kingjames You flatter me but the Queen LIKES IT!"
Curtis was similarly effusive on Twitter.
Curtis has good reason to be flattered--James is apparently such a huge fan of the film franchise that he dressed up as the series' sadistic villain Michael Meyers for Halloween back in 2013.
Curtis has been playing the lead role of Laurie Strode since the first Halloween in 1978, in which Strode is terrorized by Myers while babysitting neighbor girl Lindsey Wallace, played by a young Kyle Richards of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, who was just nine at the time.
The film quickly went from a low-budget slasher flick to a cult classic considered one of the most iconic horror films of all time and beloved by fans of the genre.
Curtis reprised the role in 1981's Halloween II, 1998's Halloween H20: 20 Years Later, and 2002's Halloween: Resurrection and last year's Halloween Kills. She also lent her voice to 1982's Halloween III: Season of the Witch.
As its title suggests, Halloween Ends marks the end of the series and like Halloween Kills reunites Curtis and Richards for one final bout against Myers.
On Twitter, people loved how excited Curtis was about James' kudos, and many fans shared James' enthusiasm for the film.
Halloween Ends had a $41 million opening weekend despite also premiering on Peacock at the same time. James is definitely not alone in his Halloween and Jamie Lee Curtis love!
