Why Jamie Lee Curtis Is Against Plastic Surgery: “Once You Mess With Your Face, You Can’t Get It Back”

Jamie Lee Curtist

Plastic surgery is a common thing in Hollywood, and is supported by many for that youthful, vibrant appearance. Actor Jamie Lee Curtis(62 years old) who has had her share in search for that youthful look is discouraging anyone who is thinking to get the procedure done or considering do more. Lee who appears to now appreciate the natural progression of beauty said:

“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 continues:

“I naturally had puffy eyes. If you see photographs of me as a child, I look like I haven’t slept. I’ve just always been that person, and we were shooting a scene in a courtroom with that kind of high, nasty fluorescent light, and it came around to my coverage in the scene, and [the cameraman] said, “I’m not shooting her today.”

Her eyes are too puffy. I was so mortified and so embarrassed and had just so much shame about it that after that movie, I went and had routine plastic surgery to remove the puffiness. They gave me Vicodin as a painkiller for something that wasn’t really painful.”

Lee’s experience is a continued reminder how someone’s words can go on to affect what another person later does with their life to negative affect. Lee says that she went on to fighting an addiction to Vicodin. Now in a better place in being comfortable with her beauty and overcoming her addiction to the painkiller, Lee had this to say of the pressure social media also adds to one’s life:

“I use social media to sell things and amplify things I care about. Period. The rest is cancer. I never read one comment. It’s also very dangerous. It’s like giving a chainsaw to a toddler. 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. All of us who are old enough know that it’s all a lie. It’s a real danger to young people.”
