Jamie Lee Curtis speaks out against plastic surgery and urges people not to go under the knife

Jamie Lee Curtis has urged others not to go under the knife and to embrace their natural beauty.
The Halloween star has previously had work done but that is now a thing of the past, she told US morning show TODAY.
"Does Botox make the big wrinkle go away? Yes. But then you look like a plastic figurine," Curtis told TODAY host Hoda Kotb.
"Walk a mile in my shoes. I have done it. It did not work.
"And all I see is people now focusing their life on that."
She revealed that she's passed those kernels of wisdom down to her two daughters Annie, 35, and Ruby, 26.
"Don't mess with your face," the 63-year-old revealed she told her kids.
This isn't the first time that the Everything Everywhere All at Once star has commented on warped beauty standards and anti-aging.
Back in 2021, Curtis sat down with Fast Company to talk about society's beauty obsession.
"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," she said.
"Once you mess with your face, you can't get it back."
Curtis has openly admitted top having work done in the past.
Back in 1989, Curtis had fat taken from underneath her eyes after she said a cameraman made comments about them being 'puffy' on the set of the 1985 film Perfect.
The procedure then triggered an addiction to Vicodin, a prescription medication that helps relieve severe pain.
"I tried plastic surgery and it didn't work. It got me addicted to Vicodin. I'm 22 years sober now," she told Fast Company.
Curtis also revealed back in 2002 that she has previously undergone Botox and liposuction treatments.
"I've had a little lipo. I've had a little Botox. And you know what? None of it works. None of it," she said, as per E! News.
She added: "It's such a fraud. And I'm the one perpetuating it."
"Nobody tells you if you take fat from your body in one place, it comes back in another place."
In another 2002 interview with The Telegraph, Curtis added: "All of these 'bettering' experiences are not without risk. And there is this illusion that once you do it, then you'll be fine. And that's just horses**t. I looked worse."
