Jamie Lee Curtis, who you might well remember for her roles in the Halloween franchise, spoke her mind about what she really thinks about the 'anti-aging' era and how she believes that plastic surgery is the worst you could do to yourself.
The American actress spoke recently on an episode of Lorraine and while there she admitted that once you do something to your face you just can't go back. “I have been an advocate for natural beauty for a long time, mostly because I’ve had the trial and error of the other part. I did plastic surgery. It didn’t work. I hated it,” she told Lorraine Kelly. “It made me feel worse.”
In the past, Jamie Lee Curtis revealed that a cameraman who mentioned her puffy eyes was the reason why she decided to go under the knife and since then, she has always regretted it and since then has been an advocate for “not f*cking with your face.”
Nowadays, the actress sports her gray hair proudly and very short. Despite she really looks incredible she also admits that when she was young she experimented and did everything you could name to her hair until she decided that enough was enough. 'I tried to do everything you can do to your hair. Personally, I felt it was humiliating. I would go into a hair salon, the smell of the chemicals, the feeling of that color on my hair, sitting under the hairdryer - it was like, for what?'”
But that was not all. After embracing her grey hair and accepting herself, Jamie Lee Curtis reflects on how the word -anti-aging- should stop being used around. “The term, anti-aging… what? What are you talking about? We’re all going to f—king age. We’re all going to die. Why do you want to look 17 when you’re 70? I want to look 70 when I’m 70.”
This is not the first time that Jamie Lee Curtis speaks against the beauty procedures that are so on-trend nowadays. “The current trend of fillers and procedures, and this obsession with filtering and the things that we do to adjust our appearance on Zoom are wiping out generations of beauty. Once you mess with your face, you can’t get it back,” she said in an interview with Fast Company explaining that she believes social media can have a negative effect on mental health because of beauty standards.
“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, because of the comparisons to others,” Curtis explained. “All of us who are old enough know that it’s all a lie. It’s a real danger to young people.
