In 1994, Hollywood was rocked by the dynamic duo of Jamie Lee Curtis and Arnold Schwarzenegger in the action-packed comedy, “True Lies,” directed by James Cameron. Nearly three decades on, these iconic stars have come together once again, this time for a charitable cause. Curtis commemorated the reunion by sharing a delightful glimpse of their encounter on Instagram.
The actors gathered at a fundraiser supporting the nonprofit organization, After-School All-Stars, dedicated to assisting underprivileged children. Curtis, renowned for her wholehearted commitment, dressed in perfect harmony with the event’s Alps-themed ambiance. In the snapshots, she exuded charm in a traditional German dirndl dress paired with a lovely flower crown. Playfully, she quipped, “‘Ya, my name is Ingeborg, I’m from Stuttgart.'”
Curtis also extended a warm acknowledgment to her co-star, who brought his own flair to the occasion with knee-high socks and a classic black t-shirt. She expressed her admiration for the way her friends wholeheartedly support causes that resonate with their souls. She added, “I adore Arnold, and @schwarzenegger LOVES @afterschoolallstars!” “THE GOAT!”
The duo also struck a pose alongside the esteemed chef, Hans Rockenwagner. Their last public encounter was at Curtis’ hand-and-footprint ceremony at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, back in October 2022. On that occasion, the former California governor paid a touching tribute to Curtis, hailing her as “the most extraordinary actress” and fondly recalling their collaboration on “True Lies.” “When you go online and check out Jamie Lee Curtis, you can see all the wonderful things they’re saying about her,” asserted Schwarzenegger strongly. However, there is one thing that always truly irritates me, and that is when it is said that she is a supporting actor in the film “True Lies.” Because she was the female lead and not a supporting role. The focus was on her. She and I were acting together.
“True Lies” earned Curtis a well-deserved Best Actress Golden Globe Award and also secured an Oscar for Best Visual Effects. Reflecting on that pivotal time in her career, Curtis expressed a desire to once again share the screen with Schwarzenegger. She enthusiastically stated, “It made me want to do another one with him. I walked up to him and I was like, ‘Dude, why aren’t we doing another movie?’ I’m gonna call [James Cameron] today.”
