Jamie Lee Curtis, 63, declares himself “pro-aging” and speaks out against Botox

Jamie Lee Curtis speaks out against the use of Botox and cosmetic surgery and urges people to embrace the inevitability of aging.

Curtis – who has admittedly and regrettably undergone procedures in the past – shared TODAY the advice she has been giving to her daughters Annie, 35, and Ruby, 26.

“Don’t mess with your face,” insisted the 63-year-old star, who proudly declared himself “pro-aging” during Monday’s candid interview.

“I underwent plastic surgery. I put botox in my head. Does Botox make the big wrinkle go away? Yes. But then you look like a plastic figure,” Curtis explained.

Botox is an injectable that uses the toxin onobotulinumtoxinA to temporarily prevent muscle movement. It can soften moderate to severe wrinkles in areas like the forehead and around the eyes.

The Halloween franchise star called out to those who have made anti-aging a regular part of their daily lives.

“Walk a mile in my shoes. I did it. It did not work. And all I see is people focusing their lives on it now,” she concluded

Curtis previously noted how the anti-aging obsession has skewed beauty standards over time.

“The current trend of fillers and procedures and this obsession with filtering and the things we’re doing to customize our appearance on Zoom is wiping out generations of beauty,” she told Fast Company, adding, “Once you’re with your face.” mess around, you can’t get it back.’

In 1989, Curtis Fett was removed from under my eyes after a cameraman made comments about her “puffy eyes” on the set of Perfect in 1985.

Aside from disliking the outcome of the procedure, it also brought about her addiction to Vicodin, a prescription opioid meant to relieve severe pain.

“I tried cosmetic surgery and it didn’t work. It got me addicted to Vicodin. I’m 22 years sober now,” she told the outlet.

Curtis previously admitted to having had liposuction and botox once.

“I had a small lipo. I got a little botox. And you know what? None of this works. None of that. It’s such a scam. And I’m the one carrying it on,” she told More magazine in 2002.

Earlier this week, Curtis admitted it had taken her years to find her true self, with the star admitting she’d made many mistakes along the way.

She compared life to a process of exclusion and said she had to work on and improve the parts of herself she didn’t like in order to become more real.

When asked by DJ Jackie Brambles on Greatest Hits Radio on Monday how she learned to be comfortable with herself, the Hollywood star said: “It was hard earned, it took a while so if you look back, there was there some bad haircuts, some patterns I wish I hadn’t worn and some people I might wish I hadn’t slept with.

“There are mistakes, we make them and we learn. Life is like a Guess Who? Play and you drop the things you’ve tried that don’t work for you and suddenly who you are comes out.

“I’m the short haired woman who wears glasses and is black and white and I have a very clear idea of ​​who I am. I was trying to find my own sanity, and finding my own sanity took a while…

“I’m open, I’m curious and I’m not afraid to say I’m wrong.”

It comes after Jamie revealed she uses the name Marion Crane – her mother’s character in Psycho – as a pseudonym when staying in hotels.

The screen star – the daughter of movie stars Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh – said it kept her mother, who died in 2004 aged 77, “lived on”.

Janet Leigh’s biggest role was as fugitive con artist Marion Crane in the 1960 film Psycho, in which she is killed in the shower by Norman Bates, played by Anthony Perkins.

She won a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress as well as an Oscar nomination for her creepy role.
