Jamie Lee Curtis’ new movie “Halloween Kills” is coming out soon. While she promotes the latest Halloween installment, the actress took to discussing something she thinks very important to address.
The 62-year old told Fast Company what she thinks about Instagram/Snapchat filters as well as what she feels about plastic surgery. She went as far as to claim that plastic surgery is ‘wiping out generations of beauty.’
Lee Curtis warned the younger generation about messing with their faces through plastic surgery. It’s hard to gain back glow and natural beauty after going through plastic surgical procedures. She gave her own example, stating:
Once you mess with your face, you can’t get it back. I tried plastic surgery and it didn’t work. It got me addicted to Vicodin. I’m 22 years sober now.
Curtis has a serious problem with what people deem perfect in today’s society. She considers social media to be the biggest proponent in making people wanting to attain “perfection” by any means necessary, and she keeps her distance from it.
I use social media to sell things and amplify things I care about. Period. The rest is cancer. I never read one comment. It’s like giving a chain saw to a toddler. We just don’t know the longitudinal effect, mentally, spiritually, and physically, on a generation of young people who are in agony because of social media, because of the comparisons to others.
The actress has previously opened up about her dissatisfaction of Botox and plastic surgery procedures. She revealed to The Telegraph in 2002 that she has tried both, but thinks that absolutely none of that stuff works.
