The original “scream queen” Jamie Lee Curtis cracked a horror joke about the current state of American politics after her “Halloween” sequel debuted Saturday at the Toronto International Film Festival.

During a 2 a.m. Q&A that followed the film’s screening, Ms. Curtis was asked if she’s ever scared in real life.

“You know, life’s a little scary. I live in America,” she joked. “This [expletive’s] getting real, so I’m scared every day.”

Ms. Curtis has not made her disdain for President Trump a secret. In January, she called him an embarrassment to the country for alleged comments he made during a closed-door meeting with senators.

Ms. Curtis plays Laurie Strode, now a grandmother, in the 11th installment of the “Halloween” franchise, which takes place 40 years after the events of the original 1978 film.

The sequel, directed by David Gordon Green, premieres in theaters Oct. 19.
