Why's Jamie Lee Curtis sporting a Britney Spears wig?

ActressJa_Jeffr_16789072_600 At a glance, it looked like Jamie Lee Curtis was pulling a total Britney Spears at Saturday night's 3rd Annual "Noche De Ninos" Gala at The Beverly Hilton Hotel.

But really, she was showing her support for Katie Westbrook, a 15-year old girl who died of cancer. Say what?

Jamie Lee Curtis first met Katie Westbrook when she was just 11. "We were at a news conference, and [Katie Westbrook] pulled off this wig and on her head she had written 'Jamie Lee Curtis Rocks,'" Curtis told E!

"That night I borrowed her wig and went to this event, where we raised millions of dollars for Children's Hospital Pittsburgh. After she died, I asked her mother if I could have her wig to carry her message."

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger gave Curtis the Courage to Care Award at Saturday's event. Wonder if the two reminisced about their "True Lies" days. The Governator and Curtis played Harry and Helen Tasker in the 1994 romantic action flick.

Frankly, Jamie Lee looks great in pink hair. And carrying the photo of Katie is so sweet.  What a lovely thing to do. Bet Katie thinks it's cool, too.
