R.I.P. Janet Leigh  
Janet Leigh, the wholesome beauty whose shocking murder in the classic Alfred Hitchcock thriller "Psycho" was credited with making generations of film fans think twice about stepping into a motel room shower, has died. She was 77.

"She died peacefully at home," Heidi Schaeffer, a spokeswoman for Jamie Lee Curtis, told The Associated Press on Monday. Leigh had suffered from vasculitis, an inflammation of the blood vessels, for the past year.

The stunning blonde enjoyed a long and distinguished career, appearing in such films as the 1962 political thriller "The Manchurian Candidate" and in Orson Welles' 1958 film noir classic "Touch of Evil."

*pouts* So sad to hear. And apparently I need to update myself on actors/actresses backgrounds, cause I didn't even know that was Jamie Lee Curtis's mom o.o;;

Well at least I've seen one movie of hers (or rather theirs), "Trading Places".
Thank you though :)
