Jamie Lee Curtis Says She’s Been ‘Sucking My Stomach In’ Since She Was 11

If anyone can change the demands of the script, it is its own protagonist. Jamie Lee Curtis, tired of the industry always asking her to take care of her image, required that for her role in Everything Everywhere All At Once she was allowed honesty, bodily freedom, not having to shrink her gut every time the camera looked at her character. And he succeeded. The tax auditor she gives life to have transformed the image of Jamie Lee Curtis into a woman with a gray half mane with bangs who does not hide her gut. The characterization, without being exaggerated, has served the actress to launch a plea for the acceptance and normalization of a real female body.

“In the world, there is an industry — a billion-dollar, trillion-dollar industry — about hiding things. Concealment. Body modelers. Filled. Procedures. Clothes. Hair accessories. Hair products. All to hide the reality of who we are,” says Jamie Lee Curtis on his Instagram profile. Two years ago of the image that today will see the light on the billboard. The film by Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert opens this weekend and she wanted to take advantage of the moment to share a reflection on the damage that aesthetic stereotypes do to women.

His goal, in demanding that the film crew not put pressure on his physical form, was simply to free himself from the stigma of a normative body that has been suffering since adolescence. “I’ve been putting guts since I was 11 years old when you start to be aware of boys and bodies, and jeans are super tight,” he says in his post. “I decided very specifically to give up and release every muscle I had and that I used to squeeze to hide reality,” he adds, explaining his determination before the direction of the film. “I’ve never felt freer creatively and physically.”
