Jamie Lee Curtis takes aim at Seth MacFarlane's 'boobs song'

Family Guy creator's Oscars skit failed to amuse many, including Trading Places star

Jamie Lee Curtis has written a stinging response to Seth MacFarlane's controversial song 'We Saw Your Boobs' which he performed while hosting the Oscars.

The song noted various instances of nudity by actresses in film, from Angelina Jolie to Kate Winslet.

But since its broadcast, the 'Family Guy' creator's skit has come under fire for mentioning instances where nudity was featured in film scenes depicting rape and sexual violence, including 'The Accused', 'Boys Don't Cry' and 'Monster'.

“I was offended last week. As an Academy member, as the child of former Academy members and as a woman, I expected more from the best that the movie business has to offer. The Oscars are about honoring art and artists. It is not supposed to be a cheesy vaudeville show,” writes Lee Curtis in the  seething article on the Huffington Post.

“The 'boob' song, as it will be known in perpetuity, may go down as the highest-rated Oscar number in history, but at what cost? I'm sure public executions would get big ratings too, but is that what the Oscars are truly about? Ratings? When did they turn into a 'roast'?

“I am an actress who has bared her breasts in films to satisfy the requirement of the role I was asked to do - lucky to do, for in my case, those films were significant in my career. I didn't like doing it. I didn't ask if I could do them topless. I did what was asked of me for the part I was playing. Mostly asked by men.

“I was offended by the Oscar show. I am sorry that this is what we are talking about and not 'Argo's lovely win or Jennifer's amazing performance or Daniel's eloquence and humor and grace or the fallout from the sequester.

“What we will be talking about is Seth's lack of class and a 14-year-old boy's derogatory word for one of the most beautiful, motherly and literally nurturing parts of the female form.”

Last week, the Anti-Defamation League also accused MacFarlane of perpetuating Jewish stereotypes with jokes about Jewish people running Hollywood.
