Plastic Surgery ‘Wiping Out Generations Of Beauty’, Actress, Jamie Lee Curtis Cries Out
Hollywood actress, Jamie Lee Curtis has raised an alarm of the damage plastic surgery can do and is hoping people will start thinking twice before tweaking their appearance just to suit the current aesthetic fads.
When asked about her industry’s beauty standards in an interview with Fast Company, the actress revealed that she once tried out tried plastic surgery and while it didn’t work, it got her addicted to Vicodin.
Curtis stated that the trend of fillers and obsession with filtering, adjusts our appearance and is also wiping out generations of beauty.
She said; “I tried plastic surgery and it didn’t work. It got me addicted to Vicodin. I’m 22 years sober now.
“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. Once you mess with your face, you can’t get it back.”
Curtis also said the influence social media has on our self-perception and comparisons to others certainly doesn’t help. She stated that while they play a helpful role in activism, platforms like Instagram, TikTok and Twitter can be “very dangerous” for youths in particular.
She added; “It’s like giving a chainsaw 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. All of us who are old enough know that it’s all a lie. It’s a real danger to young people.
“I use social media to sell things and amplify things I care about. Period. The rest is cancer. I never read one comment.”
Curtis has opened up about her past cosmetic procedures before, telling the Telegraph in 2002, “I’ve had a little lipo. I’ve had a little Botox. And you know what? None of it works. None of it.”
She’s long strived to keep it real in the face of Hollywood’s unattainable beauty standards, famously posing for More magazine in 2002 in just a sports bra and skivvies, sans makeup or retouching.

How I Turned Down Mouth-Watering Offer To Star In Sex Movie, Actress Angela Eguavoen Opens Up
Nigerian film actress, Angela Eguavoen, has revealed how she once turned down an offer to be cast in an x-rated movie, even after a mind-blowing amount was offered.
The thespian narrated how an international producer contacted her and said she has the type of body that would be perfect for an adult film, but she declined because it is against her principles to take up such roles.
Angela Eguavoen said the filmmaker tried to persuade her to accept the deal by disclosing that it is mouth-watering, but she blocked him. Her words;
“I have been approached to shoot an X-rated film before. One random producer sent me a message on social media. Funnily enough, he was not even a Nigerian.
“He said I had a great body, and that I would be good in that aspect. He added that the pay would be mind-blowing. I blocked him immediately after reading the message. I don’t think I will ever do that.”
The delectable actress who made the revelation during an interview also dismissed claims that she is stereotyped in the movie industry. She said;
“I don’t think I am being stereotyped. In the course of my career, I have played diverse roles. Nollywood has opportunities for everybody, women inclusive. With the advent of social media, there are so many opportunities for everybody. I don’t think women are sidelined.
I actually think women have a lot of opportunities, because there is no film that does not feature women. I feel a producer can comfortably make a film with an all-female cast, but they cannot do the same for men. If an entertainer is accepted by a community of women, their job is mostly done.”
