Experienced actress Jamie Lee Curtis wants to encourage younger generations to forget about their obsession with plastic surgery and embrace their natural beauty.
During a recent interview with Fast Company, the "Total Recall" star revealed she is truly worried about today's society and how it is addicted to the world of cosmetic procedures.
According to the 62-year-old, she tried plastic surgery before and it didn't work. Not only that, she developed a very serious opioid addiction because of it.
A SHAPE-SHIFTING SOCIETY
Curtis, who has been sober for the past 22 years, criticized not only plastic surgery but also people's obsession over altering their appearance in general, to the point of adding filters to every photo and video.
Bill Burr mocked plastic surgery, questioning why people subject themselves to it when it hasn't been perfected yet.
The actress claimed this is "wiping out generations of beauty," and that "once you mess with your face, you can't get it back." She even witnessed the effects of cosmetic surgery on her own parents:
"I watched my parents get facelifts and neck lifts. I watched their work diminish, I watched their fame not diminish. And the contradiction of a lot of fame, but not a lot of work, is really hard to navigate for people."
Curtis said it is very hard for someone to be famous and not be able to do what made them famous in the first place, which causes them to chase the attention they had a long time ago.
SOCIAL MEDIA TOXICITY
The "Halloween" alum also reflected on the impact social media has on mental health and how it contributes to this unhealthy societal obsession, saying that "it's like giving a toddler a chainsaw." She added:
"We just don't know the longitudinal effect, mentally, spiritually, and physically, on a generation of young people who are in agony because of social media..."
A LOT OF REGRETS
Other celebrities, who like Curtis have gotten plastic surgery, such as Jessica Simpson, Melissa Gilbert, and Chrissy Teigen, have expressed their regret and spoken against image-altering procedures.
Even comedian Bill Burr, in his special, "You People Are All The Same," mocked plastic surgery, questioning why people subject themselves to it when it hasn't been perfected yet.
During the show, Burr said, "You don't [expletive] with your face. I understand liposuction, they screw that up, you can put on a shirt, right? There's no shirt for your face!"
