At 64 years old, Jamie Lee Curtis is feeling good. The actress chatted with Hoda Kotb about aging on a recent Today with Hoda & Jenna segment. She also shared the simple advice she's passing down to her daughters with Today digital.

When asked how it feels to be her age, Curtis had a simple answer. "Oh my God, like, the best thing you've ever worn," she told Kotb. "I think over the years of trial and error, a lot of therapy, a lot of sobriety, that now I am made for Jamie. I feel good in my skin, in my mind, in my body."

Some of that trial and error may refer to her experiences with cosmetic procedures. Curtis has been open in the past about getting plastic surgery — something that lead her to become addicted to Vicodin, she explained to Fast Company in 2021. Now, she loudly condemns these types of procedures and the phrase "anti-aging" in general.

"You know, we live in a fake society, Hoda, and I have waxed poetic and become a bit of a militant about the cosmeceutical industry that [is] feeding young people, unfortunately, that you can do something to change the way you look when you can't," she said during her recent interview with Kotb. "Now, the problem is technology. We can do it on our phones, we can wipe away our lives, and there are too many celebrities — I will not name you — who do it on the daily, who post these ridiculous images of themselves, as if they look like that," she continued.

Curtis is far more interested in appearing her age than pretending otherwise. "Maybe the more movies I get to make where people go, 'Oh, she looks like an old lady,' okay, it's all good," said the Halloween actress. "Aging is what happens. We're human."

As for Curtis' advice to her daughters? "Don't mess with your face," she told Today digital. "I did plastic surgery," she continued. "I put Botox in my head. Does Botox make the big wrinkle go away? Yes. But then you look like a plastic figurine."

She seems to hope her past experiences will help her kids make different decisions. "Walk a mile in my shoes," said Curtis. "I have done it. It did not work." (Next up: Why Tia Mowry Sees Her Gray Hair As a 'Blessing')
