"Jamie Lee Curtis reveals history of opioid addiction: 'Stealing, conniving. No one knew'"

LAT:

The 59-year-old actress opened up to the magazine about her history of opioid addiction, which began after a minor plastic surgery procedure on her eyes in 1989.

She went on to share that she had stolen drugs from family and friends, even her sister Kelly, who was the first person to discover the actress’ addiction in 1998.

In February 1999, Curtis began attending recovery meetings and told her longtime husband, director Christopher Guest, of her dependency. Nearly 20 years later, she continues to attend meetings and offer support to those who are struggling.
