"Does Botox make the big wrinkle go away? Yes. But then you look like a plastic figurine," she said.
The last installment of the classic horror movie, 'Halloween', is here. Actor Jamie Lee Curtis, 63, who plays the role of Laurie Strode, will be seen facing serial killer Michael Myers for the final time. The movie is called, 'Halloween Ends.' Speaking about the film, Jamie told TODAY, "They've come up with a very good way to end this 'thrillogy.' We've made three films, I think it completes the story in a sad, interesting way," she added. During promotion of the film, she spoke about young people getting plastic surgery done and urged people against the idea. She reflected on her personal journey and asked young people to "not mess" with their face.
The movie has many plot twists and references to the 1978 horror film. It also includes a tribute to star Kyle Richards, who had a small role in the first movie. "The Easter Eggs are pretty evident. It's like when you have 2-year-olds and you're doing an Easter Egg hunt and you literally put them next to the trash can. You're not hiding them," she said. Jamie had also worked as an executive producer on the movie, she values the friendships that she made on and off the set. "I am Laurie Strode," she said. "'Halloween' has given me millions of people who love Laurie Strode, therefore, they love me. And, I've had the privilege of working with thousands of people who've made these films and who I consider friends."
She has been an outspoken critic of the culture which promotes looking young at any cost. Her advice to her daughters Annie, 35, and Ruby, 26, has been: "Don't mess with your face." She shared that she herself had given in to the pressure and went through cosmetic procedures and they only made her feel worse. "I did plastic surgery," she said. "I put Botox in my head. Does Botox make the big wrinkle go away? Yes. But then you look like a plastic figurine," she added.
The cosmetic procedures didn't work for her. "Walk a mile in my shoes. I have done it. It did not work. And all I see is people now focusing their life on that," Curtis said. In the past, she has spoken about embracing natural beauty. "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.
Recently, Kanye West tweeted, "go death con 3 on JEWISH PEOPLE." He also he "can't be Anti Semitic" because "black people are actually Jew also." The post was later removed. Curtis said she was in tears after reading it. "It's bad enough that fascism is on the rise around the world. But on Twitter, on a portal, to pour that in? As if Jewish people haven't had it hard enough?" she said. She had also tweeted about it. "The holiest day in Judaism was last week. Words matter. A threat to Jewish people ended once in genocide. Your words hurt and incite violence. You are a father. Please stop," she wrote.

She shared with TODAY about the love that she has been getting for her role. "I'm getting a lot of attention. A lot of attention," she said. "And the attention is for Laurie Strode, who people love." When the host asked her what would she do if she crossed paths with Michael Myers in real life, "I think she'd walk right by him because I think she knows everything about him," Curtis said. "I don't even think he'd raise his knife. She'd walk right through him."
