Jamie Lee Curtis and Arnold Schwarzenegger, co-stars from the 1994 blockbuster film “True Lies,” reunited over the weekend for a charity event, almost 30 years after the movie’s premiere. Curtis, 64, shared delightful photos of their reunion on her Instagram to commemorate the occasion.
The Oscar-winning actress and former California governor, now 76, spent time together at a charity event organized by the nonprofit After-School All-Stars, which assists low-income children.
Curtis wore a German dirndl dress and a flower crown, while Schwarzenegger sported a black T-shirt and high socks in the photos they posted. The duo also posed with chef Hans Rockenwagner, who joined the apparent theme.
Curtis expressed her admiration for Schwarzenegger’s commitment to causes he cares about, including After-School All-Stars. She posted, “‘Ya, my name is Ingeborg, I’m from Stuttgart.’ I LOVE the way my friends suit up and show up for the causes that move their souls and hearts. @schwarzenegger LOVES @afterschoolallstars, and I LOVE ARNOLD! THE GOAT! ”
This charitable event marked their public reunion, almost a year after their previous encounter in October 2022 when Curtis was honored with a hand-and-footprint ceremony at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. During the event, Schwarzenegger praised Curtis as the “most extraordinary actress” and applauded her performance in “True Lies,” where she played the female lead opposite him.
The two even shared a friendly kiss during the ceremony. Schwarzenegger emphasized that Curtis was not a supporting actress in “True Lies” but the female lead and star alongside him.
Curtis, in an interview with Entertainment Tonight after receiving her honor, expressed her desire to work with Schwarzenegger again, stating, “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 Jim today,” referring to filmmaker James Cameron.
“True Lies” was a major success, grossing over $146 million worldwide, with more than $25 million in its opening weekend in 1994. The film also earned an Oscar nomination for Best Visual Effects and a Golden Globe Award for Curtis as Best Actress.
