Jamie Lee Curtis Hates Surgery 'Conspiracy'

Jamie Lee Curtis believes there is a "conspiracy" in Hollywood to make actresses have cosmetic surgery.

The 51-year-old star thinks it's wrong that so many older actresses feel under pressure to change their appearance to try and keep working in the movie business.

Jamie said: "Everybody is saying that to get jobs you have to dye your hair and get injectables. It's a conspiracy, a complete catastrophe, a surgical industrial complex. Somehow we are being fed this belief that to continue on we have to do this. Yet people are being disfigured. It's shocking what people are doing to their faces."

The 'Freaky Friday' actress is adamant she will never go under the knife and plans to quit acting in the next few years before she stops being considered for roles.

She added in an interview in the new edition of AARP The Magazine: "I'm getting my a*s out of this business in a few years because genetically it's not going to work for me.

"There are people who, when you see them on the screen, there's an audible gasp of, 'Oh my God. They look terrible.' Or they've done something to themselves and now look like freaks. There is only one Meryl Streep and one Sigourney Weaver. But I could name 30 other actresses in their (age) groups who aren't working today."

Despite her concerns over her advancing years, Jamie insists she has never felt healthier or more energetic.

She revealed: "I'm blessed with good health and have more energy than a 14 year old. But I'm just now starting to feel my age and the beginning of my limitations. It's not a big deal, but it's an adjustment."
