Jamie Lee Curtis says that winning an Oscar has completely transformed her career.

The 65-year-old actress – known for roles in movies including 'Halloween' and 'Freaky Friday' – took home the Best Supporting Actress prize at last year's ceremony for her part in 'Everything Everywhere All at Once' and says that it has given her opportunities that she never thought possible.

Asked by Variety on the red carpet at Sunday's (10.03.24) Academy Awards about how the award win has changed her career, Jamie said: "In really incalculable ways. I’m making a movie with James L. Brooks right now! I’ve been asked to work with people that I never thought I’d get asked to work with. James L. Brooks being one of them…it’s hard to put into words. But the good feeling that I’ve had from all over the world has changed me."

Despite spending decades in Hollywood, Jamie has been struck by how 'Everything Everywhere All at Once' has changed the perception of her as an actress and thinks it is a testament to the "impact" a picture can have.

The 'True Lies' star said: "I’ve been around a long time. That movie changed people. That movie had an impact. That’s what movies do. That’s the beauty of movies, they have an impact and they change the way we think and the way we feel and shift us. I’ve had that shift. The unexpected moment last year has just kept growing and rolling and it’s been beautiful."

Jamie - who presented the Best Supporting Actress gong at this year's Oscars - previously explained how she takes a philosophical approach to winning awards and is simply grateful to be "celebrating the arts" after the coronavirus crisis put the industry at risk.

She said: "Life is short and precious and we're in a profession that celebrates art, a time when we're out of COVID and we're back together and if we're not celebrating this moment right now, what are we doing?

"It's out of your control … At the end, win or lose, it doesn't matter. We're here celebrating the arts."
