No, thank you: Jamie Lee Curtis is DONE 'sucking her stomach in'
Jamie Lee Curtis shared an eye-opening post on her Instagram where she spoke about how done she is “sucking her stomach in”. She is now set to release “every muscle I had that I used to clench to hide the reality.”
In her upcoming movie, 'Everthing Everywhere All at Once', she clearly refuses to conceal anything about her appearance. As captioned in her Instagram post, she says, "Concealers. Body-shapers. Fillers. Procedures. Clothing. Hair accessories. Hair products. Everything to conceal the reality of who we are."
This post shows an image of Curtis dressed as her character in the movie, Deirdre Beaubeirdra an IRS auditor. As revealed further in her caption, the 63-year old star explained one primary instruction she gave everyone. It was, "And my instruction to everybody was: I want there to be no concealing of anything." More on how she was pressurized by societal norms and expectations were expressed in the caption. She says, "I've been sucking my stomach in since I was 11, when you start being conscious of boys and bodies, and the jeans are super tight."
Shedding light on what it is like currently, the 'Halloween' star says, "I very specifically decided to relinquish and release every muscle I had that I used to clench to hide the reality. That was my goal. I have never felt more free creatively and physically.”
There are overwhelming comments left on her post. Wendi McLendon-Covey's comment read, "I can’t wait to see this!" while Patton Oswalt remarked, "I cannot WAIT to see this and I’m so jealous you got to hang out with Michelle Yeoh!"
Another jokingly said, "This photo is literally everyone returning to work post-pandemic. 😂" This user scrutinized the image and pointed out, "Those are some..uhm..interesting awards on your desk." Another similar observation said, "I think it’s the butt plug trophies that do it for me. 😂 I wish I could read the inscriptions, they have to be classic."
In an interview, earlier in 2022, Curtis said, "It was a powerful experience that nobody else could take credit for — it was just me, the music, three cameras, and approximately 100 dudes."
