So Jamie Lee Curtis is on the cover of AARP magazine sometime soon, and in reading an article about it, I uncovered this terrifying bit:
Curtis, who is married to Christopher Guest and the mother of two children, says she reached a turning point two years ago when a tabloid published a photo of her and gave her weight as 161 pounds.
“I was like, `How dare you — I’m not 161 pounds!’ I was indignant. I got home and I went on a scale and I was 161 pounds. I was in denial about it,” she says.
“So I started a really healthy way of eating, just avoiding things that I had been shoving in my mouth. Over the course of a year, I dropped about 20 pounds,” Curtis says.
161 pounds on a tall woman is not what you’d call unattractive. It’s sort of what you’d call, you know, healthy.
Because, let’s face it, there’s nothing sexier to me than a woman who can help me move the furniture, dammit, and someone whom I won’t accidentally break.
Bonus note: If Jamie Lee Curtis shilling for the senior citizens’ magazine isn’t enough to make you feel acutely old, how about the fact that the movie Halloween: H20 is available in 10th anniversary edition DVDs?
