Jamie Lee Curtis Warns Plastic Surgery “Erases Generations of Beauty” | Culture & Leisure
Jamie Lee Curtis fears plastic surgery “wipes out generations of beauty.”
The 62-year-old star – who admitted her own experiences with cosmetic procedures had resulted in addiction to Vicodin, from which she had abstained for 22 years – criticized modern beauty standards and raised concerns about certain trends.
She told Fast Company: “I tried plastic surgery and it didn’t work. It got me addicted to Vicodin. I’ve been sober for 22 years now.
“The current trend of loads and procedures, and this obsession with filtering, and the things we do to adjust how we look on Zoom is erasing generations of beauty.
“Once you have fun with your face, you can’t get it back. “
The “Halloween Kills” star has also weighed in on the impact of social media on mental health, noting that she uses her own platforms to simply “sell things and amplify things” that are close to her heart, describing everything. remains like “cancer”.
She added, “It’s like giving a toddler a chainsaw.
“We just don’t know the longitudinal effect, mentally, spiritually and physically, on a generation of young people who suffer because of social media, because of the comparisons with others.
“All of us who are old enough know that this is all a lie. It is a real danger to young people.”
Jamie has already opened up about the pressures aging people feel in Hollywood, as her parents – Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh – have both gone under the knife.
Earlier this year, she said, “I watched my parents have their face and neck lifted. I saw their work diminish, I saw their fame not diminish.
“And the contradiction between a lot of celebrity, but not a lot of work, is really hard for people to navigate. Very hard to be famous but not do what made you famous.
“And that for the rest of your life, you’re famous for something you did a long time ago, and you chase that attention.”
