Jamie Lee Curtis: 'I Did 'Halloween H20' for the Money'

Jamie Lee Curtis only agreed to be part of 1998 horror movie Halloween H20 for the paycheck.

The actress will reprise her Laurie Strode character in one more Halloween movie this year and she insists she really wanted to be a part of this project, unlike the last time she signed on for a return. 

Four decades after she first played Strode in the original Halloween, Curtis tells Variety, "H20 started out with best intentions, but it ended up being a money gig. The film had some good things about it. It talked about alcoholism and trauma, but I ended up really doing it for the paycheck." 

Her final outing as Strode will hit theaters in October.
