In the new issue of AARP The Magazine, Jamie Lee Curtis discusses the tremendous pressure on older actresses to get plastic surgery, and she plans to quit acting rather than going under the knife.

Curtis says:

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... 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.

Curtis adds that while a few natural-looking women like Meryl Streep and Sigourney Weaver are still winning good roles, she can name "30 other actresses" in their age group who can't find work. As for Curtis, she refuses to submit to the "surgical industrial complex" and says, "I'm getting my ass out of this business in a few years because genetically it's not going to work for me."
