Jamie Lee Curtis, 63, says Botox can 'make the big wrinkle go away,' but 'then you look like a plastic figurine'

Jamie Lee Curtis never holds back when it comes to her views on aging.

The Halloween Ends star, 63, shared her thoughts about Botox, getting older and the wisdom she's gained since turning 60.

"I did plastic surgery. I put Botox in my head. Does Botox make the big wrinkle go away? Yes. But then you look like a plastic figurine," she told TODAY.

The advice Curtis gives her daughters Annie, 35, and Ruby, 26, is simple: "Don't mess with your face."

"Walk a mile in my shoes," said the actress, who's spoken candidly in the past about how plastic surgery may have contributed to an addiction to Vicodin (she's 23 years sober now). "I have done it. It did not work. And all I see is people now focusing their life on that."

Curtis has spoken in the past about how embracing natural beauty has always been a conscious choice. She's also routinely pointed out her distaste for the term "anti-aging."

"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," she told Irish broadcaster Lorraine Keane in October 2021.

"I've also been an advocate for not f***ing with your face," she added. "And the term 'anti-aging.' What? What are you talking about? We're all going to f****ing age. We're all gonna die. Why do you want to look 17 when you're 70? I want to look 70 when I'm 70!"

Curtis is also applying that perspective to her career.

"My motto is 'If not now, when? If not me, who?' and it really kicked in at 60," she told Today co-anchor Hoda Kotb. "Now I'm just getting the opportunity to be a maker. I'm a creator. I'm a producer. I'm a director — everything I've wanted to do since I was little."

Following the success of 2018's Halloween, Curtis says she gained a new "place to stand as a creative person" that inspired her to go after things she'd always wanted to do in life, explaining that for a long time, she worked to maintain a balance between her career and motherhood.

"For years I did commercials because it allowed me to basically be the mom I wanted to be. Now my kids are grown. Both are married… now I'm free to create, and I'm gonna do it until they kick me out," she said.
