Jamie Lee Curtis said his late mother Janet Leigh was “really upset” by the #MeToo movement that has swept Hollywood for the past four years.

The 62-year-old actress spoke to Interview magazine during a conversation with fellow actress Melanie Griffith about the entertainment industry and their family background.

The discussion on the topic took place as Curtis and Griffith spoke about their respective mothers, Leigh and Tippi Hedren, 91, and their work with the late Alfred Hitchcock.

Griffith, 64, told Curtis: “I don’t know how he was with your mother, but he apparently wasn’t very good with my mother,” about five years after Hedren said in his 2016 Tippi memoir that Hitchcock had sexually assaulted and harassed her in the 1960s.

Curtis said she didn’t think her mother “would ever have recognized if there had been bad behavior” in the entertainment industry because of her unrealistic optimism about her and the people who work there.

“She was, it’s a bad term, but kind of Pollyannaish about the industry,” Curtis said. “I think the #MeToo movement would have really upset her.

“It’s not fair to unbox this because she’s dead and I’m going to put words in her mouth, but knowing her I think she wouldn’t say he behaved in any way. it would be. But it is interesting that our mothers may have been in competition with each other.

Curtis said she doubted Leigh “would ever have recognized anything because from her point of view she was just grateful” because “it was totally her point of view.”

“I think she would have considered it like, ‘It was just like that,’ Curtis said.

Hitchcock was “very psychologically insane” with Hedren, Griffith said, illustrating the differences in the time frames involved.

“You know, she was part of the #MeToo movement, and that wasn’t accepted back then,” Griffith said. “She was avoided and he made sure she was. “

Curtis recently paid tribute to his late mother, who died in October 2004 at the age of 77 following a battle with vasculitis, by disguising himself as his character Psycho by Marion Crane for the premiere of Halloween Kills.

Curtis’ new film, Halloween Kills, can be seen in both theaters and on the Peacock Premium streaming service.
