Acclaimed actress Jamie Lee Curtis recently reflected on Hollywood beauty standards and admitted she once tried plastic surgery. Scroll below to read about her experience.
Jamie Lee Curtis is one of the most acclaimed Hollywood stars in the past four decades. The award-winning actress earned a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame as early as 1998, two decades after making her film acting debut.
Like any Hollywood actor, Curtis is under pressure to look youthful. Now 62, the "Forever Young" actress has opened up about her experience with plastic surgery and shared her thoughts on the current beauty trends.
In an interview with Fast Company, Curtis said she was thrilled to still be busy with her career at her age. When asked about her previous statement about not wanting to get any more plastic surgery, the actress replied:
"I tried plastic surgery and it didn't work. It got me addicted to Vicodin."
The Golden Globe winner shared that she has been 22 years sober. She also pointed out the impact of the current obsession with fillers, procedures, and filtering, saying these "are wiping out generations of beauty."
Enhancing one's beauty by going under the knife is commonplace in the entertainment industry and Curtis is aware of the various cosmetic procedures her peers are getting.
These days, Curtis is not anymore bothered by the pressure to look youthful as she is now fully embracing the aging process.
The "Freaky Friday" actress comes from a talented and artistic family. Her late parents are cinema legends Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh, who also both suffered from the pressures of looking youthful on-screen.
Curtis shared that her parents underwent anti-aging surgeries such as neck and facelifts. Watching the complicated procedures prepared the "Scream Queens" actress for the harsh realities of fame.
These beauty procedures come with risks. Recently, supermodel Linda Evangelista made headlines after revealing that her face was "permanently deformed" due to a cosmetic treatment.
These days, Curtis is not anymore bothered by the pressure to look youthful as she is now fully embracing the aging process. Her authenticity, as she grows older, has led her to enjoy a timeless career.
Curtis, whose career spans more than four decades, was honored at the recent Venice Film Festival with a Lifetime Achievement Award. Reflecting on the recognition, she said she felt as alive as a teenager.
The veteran actress debuted her career in the 1978 horror film "Halloween" where she played Laurie Strode. She reprised her iconic role again in "Halloween Kills," released last month.
She considered the horror classic as the highest moment of her career. When asked about worst moments in her career, Curtis said there was none.
