A touching moment went down at San Diego Comic-Con after Jamie Lee Curtis hugged a fan who claimed to be alive today because of her famous character in “Halloween.”
Curtis was speaking at a Q&A panel Friday night for the upcoming “Halloween” movie when a fan told a harrowing story about surviving a home invasion because of his inspiration for Curtis’ character, Laurie Strode, and said that when things were at their darkest, he thought about what the star would do in a similar situation.
Great moment at Comic-Con when a Jamie Lee Curtis fan tells how Laurie Strode's bravery on Halloween saved him from a real life attack.

Fighting back tears, the man said “To make a long story short, I’m here today because of the way that you portrayed Laurie Strode. I’m a victor today instead of a victim.”
Curtis left the podium and went into the crowd to embrace the man and kiss him on the cheek.
Try not to cry, go ahead.
