Jamie Lee Curtis Says Getting Plastic Surgery 'Made Me Feel Worse'

Jamie Lee Curtis has railed against beauty standards for women and the plastic surgery industry in a reflection on her own experience with cosmetic procedures.

The iconic actress, who is 62 and an advocate for aging naturally, even admitted that she felt humiliated by getting surgery.

"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," Curtis said in an interview on U.K. breakfast show, Lorraine, this week.

"I did plastic surgery—it didn't work. I hated it. It made me feel worse," she said.

The Freaky Friday star went on to talk about her famous cropped hairdo, saying she tried everything before getting comfortable with her signature style.

"I tried to do everything you can do to your hair. Personally, I felt it was humiliating. I would go into a hair salon, the smell of the chemicals, the feeling of that color on my hair, sitting under the hairdryer—it was like, for what?" she said.

"So very early on in my career, I had a perm and then had to dye my hair for a movie, and it burned my hair off my head!

"And the first time I cut my hair short I went, 'Oh! Oh my god. Oh wow! I look like me!' Since then I stopped dyeing it, and then I've been an advocate for not f***ing with your face."

As an advocate for aging naturally, Curtis condemned the use of the phrase "anti-aging."

She said: "And the term, anti-aging... what? What are you talking about? We're all going to f**king age! 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."

The actress made headlines Wednesday after she honored her late mother, Janet Leigh, for Halloween.

The actress portrayed her late mother's most iconic role as Marion Crane from the movie Psycho at the Tuesday premiere of her latest film, Halloween Kills.

Wearing a wig, and a pale blue Hitchcockian dress, Curtis completed her costume with a bloody shower curtain.

"I am honoring my beautiful late mama, Janet Leigh, but... it's a little more meta than that," Curtis told Entertainment Tonight on the red carpet.

"I am actually going as Scarlett Johansson as Janet Leigh in the movie Hitchcock. So it's meta because we never knew what color Janet Leigh's dress was because it was a black-and-white movie."
