Jamie Lee Curtis Attended EVO Disguised As Vega From Street Fighter

EVO 2015 is happening this weekend, and its getting some unexpected celebrity guests it didn't even know were there.

Jamie Lee Curtis, known predominantly for her roles in the original Halloween films, attended the show with her son dressed up as Vega in order to stay incognito. Her husband, Christopher Guest (Spinal Tap, Waiting for Guffman) was also in attendance cosplaying as Doctor Bosconovitch from Tekken.

In a recent interview promoting the film Spare Parts, Curtis teased her attendance and said she plays as Cammy when asked whether she preferred Ryu or Ken. You can see that interview here.

E3 is no stranger to celebrity appearances, but that show takes place in Los Angeles and accounts for all things video games. Publishers also spend a lot of money in order to make visiting the event an attractive proposition. EVO is a hyper-specific subset of video game culture devoted fanatically to one genre, so it's interesting and exciting to see someone like Jamie Lee Curtis in attendance enjoying the show and the experience with with her son.
