Jamie Lee Curtis Recreates Her Mother’s Grisly ‘Psycho’ Shower Scene
In most households, "taking after your mother" might mean you and your parent have similarly bright eyes or an identical sense of humor. When it comes to Jamie Lee Curtis' family tree, it means you run the risk of being brutally murdered every time you step into the shower.
Yesterday (September 15), the actress, who's busy filming upcoming FOX horror-comedy show Scream Queens, shared an Instagram photo straight from set in which she's screaming in front of a tiled shower wall. The kicker? She's holding a picture of her mother, who did precisely the same in Alfred Hitchcock's iconic 1960 Psycho just before being stabbed to death to the famous sounds of screeching violins and cellos. Let's hope Curtis has got a more successful escape plan plotted out.
"Honoring the Royal legend that is/was/will always be, Janet Leigh," Curtis captioned the shot above, in which she and her mother are the spitting image of each other. "Thought all fans of the genre would love it! #honorthymother."
Leigh, who won the Golden Globe and earned an Oscar nomination for the role, also famously starred in The Manchurian Candidate and Bye Bye Birdie before her death in 2004. She and Curtis appeared together in 1980's The Fog and 1998's Halloween H20.
