Basically the thread title. In an interview to promote her new movie "Spare Parts", Jamie Lee Curtis mentioned that her son is a hardcore gamer and she is taking him to a "fighting game convention" (clearly Evo) as a high school graduation present. She plays a lot of Street Fighter and of course she mains Cammy. Can't linky properly because I'm on my phone, but here it is: http://www.myfoxdc.com/clip/11047065/fox-beat-jamie-lee-curtis-stars-in-new-film-spare-parts

I'll be curious to see if this brings any more mainstream media attention to the event. How sick would it be if she appeared with her son in one of the interview/hype videos?

Interesting, time to watch True Lies again I suppose. Is she still more ripped than Cammy is?

My eyes got wider and wider reading this thread headline.

What? What!? WHAT!?

Edit Post Having Seen Video In Question

It's really weird listening to people who aren't, you know, like us, talk about games. Makes me shiver a little.

The way Jamie looks at the interviewer like he is a complete tool when he asks if she is a Ryu or Ken person is awesome. I been maining Cammy since you were suckin on your mama's teet boy!

Fuckin Jamie Lee Curtis is and always has been cool. Cammy is and always has been cool. This is two great tastes finally together!

Now let me correct you on a couple of things, OK? Aristotle was not Belgian. The central message of Buddhism is not "Every man for himself." And the London Underground is not a political movement. Those are all mistakes, Otto. I looked them up.

Will 2015 finally be the year @jeff attends EVO? He's got an extra reason to do so this time!

Better yet, have @unastrike tag along as well and shoot some material. Hang out with @da5id and everything.

Jaime Lee Curtis aside, that's pretty damn cool that she plays with her son and also supports his interests (takes him to EVO as a Grad gift).

Did you know that Jamie Lee Curtis has rockin' tits in Trading Places? Is that trivia? I'd like to think so.

Also Trading Places is a pretty good movie.

@lukeweizer: I think her, her son and her husband all play WoW together too. If I'm remembering it right, they all turn up at the end of the 10 year special documentary they put out late last year.

Was Jamie Lee Curtis in the Substitute? If so, then probably.

Also I thoroughly enjoyed screwing with people in SSFIV with Cammy. Her cannon drill thingy can be EX'd from a backwards jump which is a whole ton of fun, and there were somewhat weird hitboxes going on with her cannon spike. Also, also the half circle full screen jump thing is so much fun to annoy people with. Also also also she has the worst British accent.

@bisonhero: In my defense, I saw it spelled that way somewhere else while making this thread and thought to myself, "huh, never knew she spelled it that way, weird."

NM, my actions are indefensible. I'm sorry!

Now to be honest, I hope to God that she manages to attend EVO incognito. Or at least people don't swarm her. It sounds like a great opportunity for a celebrity to experience the greatest fighting game tournament in the world, have a positive reaction to it, and potentially speak well of it to others.

What we don't need is a bunch of idiot fans constantly trying to talk to her, get her autograph, or otherwise annoy her, we want the event to be fun for everyone.

I really hope this ends up with a story on the front page of SRK about how Jamie Lee Curtis rolled a bunch of fools in ultra sf4 money matches at EVO.
