WATCH: '3rd Rock' Star, Jane Curtin: "My New Years Resolution is to Make Sure Republican Party Dies"
On CNN's New Year's Eve coverage Monday night, when former “Saturday Night Live” star Jane Curtin, 71, was asked what her New Year's resolution was, she had a succinct and brutal response: “My New Year's resolution is to make sure that the Republican Party dies.”
t’s unclear exactly how the former star will accomplish her goal; she didn’t elaborate on the power she wields in order to guarantee that the GOP vanishes.
Curtin came to fame on “Saturday Night Live” in 1975, segueing to a role on the show “Kate and Allie,” for which she won back-to-back Emmy Awards in the 1980’s. She later starred in “3rd Rock from the Sun” between 1996–2001.
In November 2017, Curtin joined 35 other women affiliated with "Saturday Night Live" to sign a letter countering sexual harassment allegations against former senator Al Franken (D-MN), who had performed on SNL. The letter stated:
We feel compelled to stand up for Al Franken, whom we have all had the pleasure of working with over the years on Saturday Night Live (SNL). What Al did was stupid and foolish, and we think it was appropriate for him to apologize to Ms Tweeden, and to the public. In our experience, we know Al as a devoted and dedicated family man, a wonderful comedic performer, and an honorable public servant. That is why we are moved to quickly and directly affirm that after years of working with him, we would like to acknowledge that not one of us ever experienced any inappropriate behavior; and mention our sincere appreciation that he treated each of us with the utmost respect and regard.
