The 'Freaky Friday' star blasted the 'Family Guy' creator earlier this year after she was offended by his performance as host of the Academy Awards earlier this year.
Asked about her reaction to his "boobs song" skit - which recounted nude scenes by female actresses on screen - she stood by her opinion it was "inappropriate" for the occasion.
She told Entertainment Weekly: "As we are learning in everything, numbers are the only thing people care about, and maybe ever cared about. I mean, it's a business, I get that.

Jamie Lee Curtis, Jane Fonda Take Aim At Oscars 'We Saw Your Boobs' Song

Jamie Lee Curtis
It's no surprise that Seth MacFarlane offended some viewers while hosting the Academy Awards last month. The "Family Guy" creator is known for his crass humor.

Just days after the Parents Television Council called on Oscar bosses to make sure MacFarlane doesn't host again, Jamie Lee Curtis came forward to express her distaste for the funnyman's performance.

In particular, Curtis was offended by the "We Saw Your Boobs" segment in which MacFarlane poked fun at past and present Best Actress Oscar winners for baring their breasts on film.
Curtis wrote on the Huffington Post: "As an Academy ...

What Are The Top 14 Most Memorable Topless Scenes On Film?

October 10th, 2012 9:06pm EDT
Phoebe Catest Fast Times at Ridgemont High
There are dozens of actresses who have no problem taking off their tops for the sake of a movie role, and their choices can end up either hurting or helping their careers.

Some stars say they'd do it only if the "right role" came along; and others simply refuse to go topless for any reason. And sometimes an actress's decision to go topless for a role can overshadow the movie itself -- which can be good (Demi Moore in Striptease) or bad (Jessica Biel in Powder Blue).

With the advent of the internet, many of these scenes now live on forever, but with topless and nude scenes a-dime-a-dozen, ...

Most people in Hollywood don't like to reveal their true age, but there are exceptions. Helen Mirren, who fluxuates between white and white/blonde hair, proudly wears her true color on screen and off.

Last year the actress, 67, was named the best body in show business by members of British gym chain LA Fitness. Apparently, age (and hair color) doesn't matter.

Some younger stars are also embracing the white/grey trend. Singers P!nk, Adam Lambert and Ellie Goulding have all experimented with the pigment-free shade.

George Clooney is often spotted with whisps of grey unless a film role call...

52-Year-Old Jamie Lee Curtis Looks Amazing In A Short, Little Black Dress

Jamie Lee Curtis
Jamie Lee Curtis showed off her great legs in a little black dress yesterday. She attended the 3rd Annual Peer to Peer "The Art of Human Engagement Through Effective Storytelling" event in Los Angeles.

We have no problem understanding why the actress was once known as "The Body" (a title she shared with supermodel Elle MacPherson). Curtis cemented her sexy symbol status when she appeared topless in the 1983 film "Trading Places." She later appeared topless in 2001's "The Tailor Of Panama" at age 42.

Of course, we could never forget the "sexy" dance scene she did for Arnold Schwarzenegger ...

This weekend, Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds will add their names to the long and distinguished list of actors who have tackled the “body swap” movie. In “The Change-Up,” Bateman and Reynolds play friends with drastically different lifestyles: Bateman is the devoted husband and father, Reynolds is the philandering playboy. After a night of drinking, the two wake up in each other’s bodies, something neither of them really wanted.

Ricky Gervais received an extra-special gift to mark his 50th birthday - a guitar used in classic comedy This Is Spinal Tap.

The British funnyman is close pals with Christopher Guest, who played musician Nigel Tufnel in the 1984 mockumentary about a rock band, and they headed out for a meal to celebrate Gervais reaching the milestone on Saturday.

And when Guest and his wife Jamie Lee Curtis handed over a pile of gifts for The Office creator, he was stunned to unwrap a Fender guitar used by Guest in the spoof movie.

Tina Fey Seduces Arnold Schwarzenegger, 'True Lies' Style

Tina Fey
One of the best moments in Date Night is when Tina Fey and Steve Carell have to pole dance for a coked-up politician, in a friendly nod to the True Lies scene involving Jamie Lee Curtis and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Well, thanks to the internet, we now have a video of Tina Fey attempting to seduce the Governator.

Watch the Video Below:


Tina Fey has never played a character with smooth dance moves, so there isn't a lot to work with here. However, it is still amusing to watch Arnold's reactions to several of her Liz Lemon moves from 30 Rock.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Loves 'True Lies 2' Script

Now that California's been Governated, Arnold Schwarzenegger has a lot of time on his hands, and purportedly wants to get back to what he does best, i.e. snapping bad guy necks, using them as human shields, and making a barely discernible quip. Onscreen.

Many of the franchises he put on the map have found a way to carry on without him during his term in office, be it Predators, Terminators, Conans, Total Recalls, even Batmans. How the latter has managed to "kick some ice" without him we'll never know. It seemed very possible that another of his signature roles, superspy Harry Tasker in "Tr...

Sharon Stone's provocative leg-crossing scene in "Basic Instinct" has topped a new poll to find the most paused movie moments.

The actress reveals she isn't wearing any underwear beneath her short skirt as she uncrosses her legs while being interrogated by cops in the 1992 thriller - a scene which was frozen by more than a third of fans in a poll by Lovefilm.com.

The X-rated moment put Stone ahead of runner-up Jennifer Lopez, who bared her butt in 2010 comedy "The Back-Up Plan," while third place went to a blooper in 1977 hit "Star Wars," when a Stormtrooper hits his head on a ceiling.

Dana Delany Left With 'Droopy' Eye After Botox

"Desperate Housewives" star Dana Delany has warned women against face-freezing Botox injections because her own experience was so harrowing, it left her with a "droopy" eye.

The actress, 54, admits she tried the procedure in 2003 on the advice of her skin doctor - to help her stay wrinkle-free.

But the medic had had little practice in how to correctly inject the formula and one shot was enough to make Delany swear off Botox for life.

She tells Prevention magazine, "Seven years ago, I had never heard of Botox. My dermatologist was saying, 'You should try it.' He injected my forehead, hit ...

We don’t see Jamie Lee Curtis as much as we used to. She still acts and she’s still a huge star, but she’s also an author and she’s also a spokesperson for Activia Yogurt. Unless you’re a kids who reads books and sees movies and eats yogurt, it may seem like Curtis isn’t around as much.

She’s back on screen in You Again, a comedy about dealing with your high school nemesis. Her son is marrying the mean girl who tormented her daughter, but it turns out said fiance’s aunt is HER high school nemesis. Since it’s a comedy, nobody deals with it maturely.

Shinning Falling Star
Shining Star – Jamie Lee Curtis and Sigourney Weaver: This week two talented actresses get to bask in the glory of snagging the “Shining Star” title due to a perfectly planned fashion faux pas.

Jamie Lee Curtis and Sigourney Weaver have a sense of humor and know a good PR move when they see one because they both showed up in the same dress (gasp!) to the premiere of their new film, “You Again”.

The identical dress move was a play on a scene in the movie where both ladies wear the same gown to a wedding.

Jamie Lee Curtis & Sigourney Weaver had a bit of fun at the "You Again" premiere in Los Angeles yesterday by wearing the same dress - mimicking a scene from the film.

The actresses, who play former high school rivals in the film, thought it would be funny to wear the same David Meister dress to the Hollywood screening - and then pretended to be mad about each other's choice.

Weaver raged, "I am so furious... Heads are gonna roll."

And Curtis added, "I knew we were both going to wear David Meister... but he didn't tell me she was gonna do it."
