Jamie Lee Curtis has shared her regrets over having plastic surgery while launching into an impassioned speech encouraging everyone to celebrate their own natural beauty.
During Tuesday’s Lorraine, the Hollywood star spoke to the 61-year-old presenter about her current views on cosmetic surgery, after a ‘humiliating’ experience.
Jamie, 62, told the host: ‘I have been an advocate for natural beauty for a long time, mostly because I’ve had the trial and error of the other part. I did plastic surgery – it didn’t work. I hated it.
‘It made me feel worse. I tried to do everything you can do to your hair. Personally, I felt it was humiliating.’
She added: ‘I would go into a hair salon, the smell of the chemicals, the feeling of that colour on my hair, sitting under the hairdryer – it was like, for what? ‘
The award-winning actress, known for roles in iconic films such as Halloween, Trading Places and A Fish Called Wanda, also had some strong words to say for those afraid of ageing.
‘The term, anti-ageing… what? What are you talking about? We’re all going to f**king age,’ Jamie protested.
‘We’re all going to die. Why do you want to look 17 when you’re 70? I want to look 70 when I’m 70.’
Jamie’s heartfelt speech came after Lorraine revealed that Dawn French cited her as inspiration for her new short fully grey hair ‘do.
The acting legend previously revealed it was a cameraman’s comment about her puffy eyes that led to her looking into plastic surgery.
In an interview with More magazine, Jamie detailed the embarrassing moment that made her feel insecure.
‘Ten years ago, before anybody did that, I had fat taken from underneath my eyes because I was on a movie and I was puffy,’ she said.
‘I can remember the cameraman saying, I can’t shoot her. I remember being mortified.’
‘I’ve had a little lipo. I’ve had a little Botox. And you know what? None of it works. None of it. It’s such a fraud.
‘And I’m the one perpetuating it, she insisted.’
Lorraine airs weekdays at 9am on ITV
