Curtis, 62, opened up during a recent appearance on "The Kingcast" podcast hosted by Scott Wampler.

"Do you understand how … cool you are? Like, do you know that?" Wampler asked. "Do you ever think about the movies you’ve made … you have done the coolest s--- with the coolest people."

The "Halloween Kills" actor explained that she’s grateful "beyond measure" for her career, which has spanned more than four decades. But Curtis said she struggled with being away from her husband, screenwriter Christopher Guest, and their daughters Ruby, 25, and Annie, 24.

"It’s the reason that I sold yogurt that makes you s--- for seven years," Curtis revealed. "Part of the reason why I’ve done commercials … I’ve been doing commercials for a very, very, very long time partially so I can ameliorate all of that distance from my family. It allowed me to earn money and stay home."

Curtis noted that the time she spent away from her family when she was on a movie sets "really took a toll" on her emotionally.

"I was trying to reconcile at all of those times, 'How do you do this?'" Curtis said. "How do you be a mom, how do you be a wife, how do you have a career, how do you have to go away from home, how do you do it?"

While filming the 1988 comedy "A Fish Call Wanda," Curtis recalled "crying on the way to work and the way back from work." At the time, her children were babies and it was long before FaceTime and Skype.

"No matter what, I felt bad," she told Wampler.

Dannon, the company behind Activia, previously touted the product as "clinically" and "scientifically" proven to regulate digestion and boost immune systems. In 2009, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) challenged those claims. Dannon later created at $35 million fund to reimburse customers and made changes to the marketing of Activia products.

Jamie Lee Curtis, 62, Says Plastic Surgery Is ‘Wiping Out Generations of Beauty’

MedPage Today 07 October, 2021 - 09:57am

“Once you mess with your face, you can’t get it back.”

No matter the topic, Jamie Lee Curtis has always spoken her mind—and her latest comments are taking unrealistic beauty standards to task.

In a new interview with Fast Company, Curtis, 62, spoke out against plastic surgery and trendy cosmetic procedures: “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,” the Knives Out actress said. “Once you mess with your face, you can’t get it back.”

Curtis speaks from experience; she’s long been open about the fact that she’s dabbled with many different types of procedures. “I’ve had a little lipo. I’ve had a little Botox. And you know what? None of it works. None of it,” she told More in 2002. “It’s such a fraud. And I’m the one perpetuating it.”

In the two decades since the More interview, Curtis hasn’t changed her tune. “I tried plastic surgery and it didn’t work,” she continued in the Fast Company piece. She also mentioned that the procedures “got me addicted to Vicodin,” a fact she’s addressed in the past.

Curtis told Variety in 2019 that a cameraman’s comments about her “puffy eyes” led her to seek plastic surgery in her twenties, which kicked off a 10-year addiction to painkillers. She’s now over 20 years sober.

We definitely see you, Jamie!
