Jamie Lee Curtis Says Plastic Surgery Made Her Feel Worse
Horror icon Jamie Lee Curtis spoke out against the current obsession with plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures.
Jamie Lee Curtis, the original scream queen, is set to star in Halloween Kills, the 2nd movie in the critically acclaimed Halloween reboot. At 62, Curtis is still stunning and stands out in Hollywood for her natural looks and graceful aging. The famously outspoken star aimed her ax at one of Hollywood’s greatest monsters, plastic surgery.
Curtis discussed her plastic surgery regret and her belief that cosmetic surgeries are “destroying” beauty:
I tried plastic surgery and it didn’t work. It got me addicted to Vicodin. I’m 22 years sober now. 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.

Curtis is right on the mark with this one.
Plastic surgery is frequently a “fix” that simply creates more problems. Compounded with the Zoom/Instagram obsession with being filtered and perfect, plastic surgery makes dangerous beauty standards.

Not just with her looks but with her feminine confidence and straightforward attitude. Jamie Lee seems like she is who she is.
She isn’t concerned with going after every part and bending herself to fit.

The Trap Of “Likeability”
I live in Hollywood and used to work in the cosmetics industry, so I see what too much plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures can do to someone’s natural beauty.
Giant lips, frozen faces, and unnatural pear-shapes are all the rage here. Not just with women, but men as well.
And you don’t need a trained eye to see it. Your brain knows to see faces, and so it noticew when someone’s look seems off.
I applaud Curtis (not that she needs nor wants my praise) for embracing her age and living in her skin.
Our culture encourages body dysmorphia, subtly telling you are just one procedure or injection away from your perfect face.
Modern life tells you to be concerned with yourself and how you look towards others. This perverse narcissism encourages selfishness, but only as a means to please others.
It doesn’t matter if you’re happy with yourself, just as long as other people like you. Or how you look.
The obsession with “likeability” is dangerous.
We have stripped away authenticity and self-worth and replaced those valuable traits with performing the self for others.
This trend affects not only how you look but how you speak and think.
Just look at online cancel culture.
It isn’t important what’s in your heart, just what comes out of your mouth. You can see and do all the “right” things for the wrong reasons, and society will still praise you.
This is especially bad in Hollywood, and it is nice to see an icon like Jamie Lee Curtis stand against the shallowness of fame.
