Jamie Lee Curtis Gets Into Car Crash, Calls Jodie Foster
Jamie Lee Curtis called good friend and fellow actress Jodie Foster when she got into a car accident in Venice, Calif., on Thursday.
Curtis was a passenger in a black Yukon SUV when a BMW crashed into the vehicle at a busy intersection in the California beach town. Before she was rushed to the hospital, the True Lies actress called up Foster, who arrived at the scene before Curtis was loaded into the ambulance, reported TMZ.

Shortly after arriving at the hospital, Curtis was released with minor injuries. The driver, as of yet unidentified, reportedly suffered worse injuries than the actress.
Though Curtis and Foster have never appeared in a film together, they’ve both starred in versions of mother-daughter body switch classic Freaky Friday. Back in 1976, Jodie played teen Annabel Andrews in the movie's original version, which earned the young actress a Golden Globe nod. Curtis played the mother in the 2003 remake opposite Lindsay Lohan.

Curtis and Foster are also bonded by their mutual status of being legends of the horror genre. While Foster won an Academy Award for her turn as Clarice in the psycho-thriller Silence of the Lambs, Curtis became known as the "scream queen" after starring in horror films Halloween, The Fog, Prom Night, and Terror Train in the early part of her film career.
