Jamie Lee Curtis Is Done With Plastic Surgery and Ready To Age Gracefully
Apparently Jamie Lee Curtis has sworn off Botox and plastic surgery, but we’re having a hard time believing her, since the 54-year-old actress already gave plastic surgery the boot once before, back in 2006, when she said the work she had done made her look “weird.” According to “then” Jamie, undergoing cosmetic surgery was the worst decision she had ever made – a “horrible experience” that made her much more insecure than she already was. If Jamie Lee really means it this time though, kudos to her. It’s never a bad idea for a grown woman to practice some self-acceptance.
Jamie Lee Curtis, like many other unfortunate actresses, got caught up in the plastic surgery game way back when and has undergone a number of cosmetic surgery procedures in the years since, including liposuction, blepharoplasty, breast implants, Botox and more. Unlike other plastic surgery-obsessed celebrities out there though, Jamie has the guts to tell it like it is. “I’ve had a little plastic surgery. I’ve had a little lipo. I’ve had a little Botox,” Jamie Lee says. “And you know what? None of it works. None of it.”
In addition to becoming a little obsessed with cosmetic surgery itself, Jamie Lee also developed an addiction to pain medication after undergoing bad plastic surgery, which she says made her feel unnatural. The first time she had painkillers was during a cosmetic procedure, and she became hooked on the pills after plastic surgery failed to improve her appearance, anesthetizing herself on a daily basis just to get by.
It’s refreshing to hear a little truth about the pitfalls of plastic surgery, especially from a successful actress who “actively participated in and, by the way, profited from” an image that was created at the hand of a plastic surgeon. “It’s such a fraud. And I’m the one perpetuating it,” Jamie once said about her altered appearance. Not anymore though; these days Jamie Lee Curtis has resigned herself to accept the way she was meant to look and age gracefully, which she has been doing with style, we must say. “I don’t have great thighs,” admits Jamie Lee. “I have very big breasts and a soft, fatty little tummy. And I’ve got back fat.” You have to admit though Jamie, that’s better than looking like a plastic surgery mutant!
