Jamie Lee Curtis attends Evo 2015 disguised as Street Fighter's Vega

Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

Who is that cosplaying Vega at EVO 2015? Why, just Hollywood star Jamie Lee Curtis, taking her son to the fighting game tournament for his high school graduation present.

No, really. Curtis even mentioned this in an interview back in January for the release of her latest film, Spare Parts. That's the rest of the fam — including husband Christopher Guest as Tekken's Doctor Bosconovitch — on the scene, too.

Curtis, 56, became famous early in her career for her role as Laurie Strode in Halloween, then memorably starred in Trading Places, A Fish Called Wanda and True Lies. This is more than just being a cool mom — in the interview, she mentions she plays "more Street Fighter than you will ever know," favoring Cammy.
