Speaking candidly, she shared, “The best thing I learned last year in recovery was people aren’t pleased when you stop people-pleasing. It was as if the greatest sage arrived on me.” Curtis further talked about the importance of self-acceptance and owning one's identity.

What did Jamie Lee Curtis say about ageing?
Delving into the topic of ageing, Curtis, who recently turned 65, expressed her unique perspective. Rather than viewing it as a time of decline, she described it as a moment of "reflection and excitement." She explained that this phase of life brings a sense of acceptance and excitement for creative ventures that include a new book, upcoming movie projects, and participation in a TV show.
Reflecting on her current mindset, Curtis conveyed a shift towards being less critical of herself and embracing maturity. She said, "I'm much less hard on myself. I'm very much in acceptance of what I look like, and I own what I think and feel. And that, to me, is what maturity is.”

"When you're my age, you're not thinking about the future because the future means you're going to be dead," the Trading Places star humorously remarked. According to Curtis, being 65 means being more attuned to the present and finding happiness in the here and now.
