Fifty-one-year-old Jamie Lee Curtis is saying bye-bye to Botox and raising quite a few eyebrows with her stand against cosmetic surgery.
"There are people who, when you see them on the screen, there’s an audible gasp of ‘Oh my God,'" Curtis, currently starring in the comedy "You Again" tells the October issue of AARP magazine. "They look terrible - or they’ve done something to themselves and now look like freaks."
Curtis speaks from experience.
In a 1992 More magazine interview, in which she posed makeup-free in her underwear, revealed that she had undergone every type of plastic surgery and that "none of it works. None of it."
Ultimately, she has said, "It made me look worse and feel worse." Since then, she has been on a mission to make women realize that nips-and-tucks aren't necessary.
Despite her stance, Curtis admits that as an actress, looking older means less work.
'"There is only one Meryl Streep and one Sigourney Weaver. But I could name 30 other actresses in their [age] groups who aren’t working today," she says. "Me, I’m getting my a– out of this business in a few years because genetically it’s not going to work for me.”
