Jamie Lee Curtis’s movie and TV careers are as illustrious as they come, but there’s one particular job she’ll never forget: Freaky Friday.
On Thursday in L.A., the 57-year-old star took the stage inside of the Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel multiple times as host for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s banquet, during which she hilariously introduced a parade of A-listers with witty one-liners. Not surprisingly, Curtis brought up Justin Timberlake, who was there to accept a grant on behalf of FilmAid International, in an unforgettable manner.
The actress tapped into a beloved memory as the recollection served to bring Timberlake into the spotlight. “I made the movie Freaky Friday and young Lindsay Lohan and I were in a car. I was pretending to be young, she was pretending to be old … I think it’s sort of still happening,” she begun. “Our next presenter’s song was on the radio and the song was called ‘Like I Love You,’ and in the middle of this fabulous song that Lindsay and I were listening to, there is a rap by an artist named Clipse in the middle of this song, and Lindsay Lohan and I sat in a car for five hours writing these lyrics, then playing the song back and trying to lip-sync.”
Some bonds and memories will always stand the test of time.
