Jamie Lee Curtis slams Donald Trump for Lindsay Lohan comments
Jamie Lee Curtis called out Donald Trump on social media Friday in response to a resurfaced interview from 2004 in which the businessman-turned-politician made crude and misogynistic remarks about Lindsay Lohan.
In an appearance on Howard Stern’s radio show in December 2004, Trump, then 58, said 18-year-old Lohan was “probably deeply troubled and therefore great in bed.” He added, “How come the deeply troubled women, you know, deeply, deeply troubled, they’re always the best in bed?”
Curtis, who costarred with Lohan in the 2003 body-swapping comedy Freaky Friday, addressed Trump on Twitter and wrote, “How dare you. She needed help.” Curtis included a promotional photo of her and Lohan from the movie.
She used another Freaky Friday photo — depicting the pair with shocked expressions — in a prior tweet referencing Trump’s denial of an accusation that he kissed a People reporter without her consent during a 2005 interview. Trump’s denial was widely interpreted as suggesting that he would not have groped the reporter because she is unattractive.
A representative for Lohan told CNN in an email, “Right now, Lindsay is choosing to focus on the positive things happening in her life and has decided to disregard the comments made about her by presidential nominee Donald Trump. She is focusing on helping children around the world in need, and that’s where her passion is.”
A Trump spokesperson did not immediately reply to request for comment.
