* AttentionWhore: Describes herself as such, claiming her mother was not much of a diva and that she got her desire for attention from her father.



* ContractualPurity: An odd example, given that her horror films were never aimed at the 'corruptible' market to begin with. But she had been typecast as the wholesome FinalGirl in all her horror movies (though her character in ''Film/TheFog'' does hop into bed with a man she's just met). So with ''Film/TradingPlaces'' when she played a prostitute who bared her breasts on-screen, and a few other sexpot roles, that broke her out of such purity.



* DisappearedDad: Referred to her father as someone she didn't expect to hear from on birthdays or Christmas and he was "like a ghost".



* IronyAsSheIsCast: Jamie admits to not being a fan of horror films overall, and confesses that she scares easily. However, she does appreciate movies like ''Film/{{Psycho}}'' and ''[[Film/{{Halloween1978}} Halloween]]'' for their artistic merits, and is grateful for what they did for she and her mother's careers.

Likewise she had been a cheerleader in high school and was more like Lynda in ''Halloween'' than the shy bookish Laurie.
* LyingCreator: The producers of ''Film/HalloweenResurrection'' sent out a lie about her asking to have a bigger role in the film because she liked the script so much - when in actuality she was forced to do the film by contract, and only did it so that she wouldn't have to appear in another.



* OldShame: How she feels about ''Film/{{Virus}}'' and ''Film/HalloweenResurrection''.

to:

* OldShame: How she feels about ''Film/{{Virus}}'' and ''Film/HalloweenResurrection''. Likewise she disowned a ComingOfAgeStory called ''Grandview USA''.


Added DiffLines:

* PlatonicLifePartners: With Dan Aykroyd, who she called the best on-screen kisser she'd worked with. They played lovers in two movies.


Added DiffLines:

* ThrowItIn: During her dance in ''True Lies'' she slips and falls, which was a genuine mistake. Arnold Schwarzenegger briefly jumps to see if she's alright. But they left it in, since the reaction would be in-character for both of them.

* TypeCasting: She was ''the'' go-to horror chick of the late 70s and early 80s, initially because her mother was a "scream queen" herself for starring in ''Psycho''. Even then, Jamie was known for playing virginal "good girls," and was usually the FinalGirl.
