Her upcoming movie not withstanding, Jamie Lee Curtis thinks plastic surgery is actually one of the scarier things in the world.
"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 told Fast Company in a new interview. "Once you mess with your face, you can't get it back."
Jamie, 62, knows about going under the knife. Back in 1989 she had a minor plastic surgery operation on her eyes. The "Halloween Kills" star soon became addicted to opioids.
"I tried plastic surgery and it didn't work. It got me addicted to Vicodin. I'm 22 years sober now," the star said.
Social media, the actress believes, is a big culprit in desire to change appearances, insisting that Instagram, TikTok and Twitter can be "very dangerous" for youths.
"I use social media to sell things and amplify things I care about. Period. The rest is cancer. I never read one comment," she said. "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."
She added, "All of us who are old enough know that it's all a lie. It's a real danger to young people."
