    After a dreary, Joy Behar-free week on The View, Jamie Lee Curtis brought the show back to life Monday morning with a 20-minute interview that saw her jokingly discover Ana Navarro's "porn pics" and pitch a Freaky Friday reboot to Disney.

    Curtis' interview opened with a reflection on the timeliness of Halloween Ends, the third and final film in the franchise's recent revival. "This last movie, written before today — two years ago – filmed a year ago, is about how we as a society can be monsters," she said, adding that "it's through these portals" on social media that women experience the bulk of this harassment.

    To emphasize her point, Curtis reached for Navarro's phone and displayed it for the audience. "Leave me alone," replied Navarro. "I don't want my porn pics to be on TV."

    A comedian at heart, the Halloween Ends star leaned into the bit. She reached for Navarro's phone again and pretended to scroll through it. "Mamí!" she said, her face in mock shock. "You are flexible!"

    "It's more likely to be pictures of my poodle," said Navarro with a laugh.

    "Is that a euphemism?" replied Curtis.

    The good vibes continued after the commercial break, when Sara Haines asked if Curtis would ever reunite with Lindsay Lohan for a Freaky Friday sequel. Not only is Curtis game for a revival; she even has the entire idea sketched out.

    "I've already written to Disney," said the actress. "I'm wide open. Creatively, I'm wide open. So, you know, Lindsay Lohan and me back in a Freaky Friday? ... It's all good. Bring it!"

    "Let me be the grandma. Let me be the old grandma who has to take care..." she said. "So then Lindsey gets to be the sexy grandma who's still happy with Mark Harmon [Curtis' on-screen husband in the film] in all the ways you would be happy with Mark Harmon — whose wife I know very well. Pam, you know what I mean. Not like that."

    With Lohan as the "hot grandma," Curtis would be free to step into the role of a new mother. "I would like to see me try to deal with toddlers, today," she said. "I want to be a helicopter parent in today's world, as an old lady."

    Someone at Disney better be taking notes.
