Actress Jamie Lee Curtis reflects on her sobriety journey!

In an interview with Hoda Kotb on Today, Curtis opened up about the lessons she learnt.

“I've been sober for a long time, a long time, almost 25 years. The True Lies star further added, “The best thing I learned last year in recovery was people aren’t pleased when you stop people-pleasing.”

Curtis then continued, “So I’m trying to own it. Isn’t that what life is supposed to be? We grow up, we learn, we do all these things. Now we have to own it. We have to own who we are, be who we are, and be in full acceptance of who we are and what we’re not. And I think that’s the beauty of me right now, owning it.”

“I was ahead of the curve of the opiate epidemic. I had a 10-year run, stealing, conniving. No one knew. No one.”

“Sixty-five is a moment of reflection and excitement. So, for me, I feel more excited, more turned on creatively. I have a new book. I’m heading to go make a movie. I got to be in a TV show. I’m having a creative time,” Curtis continued.

“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. You own what you think and feel. I say what I mean. I mean what I say. I try not to say it means anything. And that’s away then to grow into my old age.”

“You’re thinking about new shoes, new clothes, dentists, schools, things. Everything is the future. And when you’re my age, that isn’t, you’re not thinking about the future because the future means you’re going to be dead."
