JAMIE LEE CURTIS SHOWS SOME SKIN ON RETIREMENT MAGAZINE: GOOD OR BAD IDEA?

EMBRACING HER AGE AND WEIGHT!

Jamie Lee Curtis went shirtless to pose for AARP The Magazine. Curtis is shown sporting gray hair and wading in water up to her chest on the cover of the magazine’s May/June issue, which will be available Monday. The star of “True Lies,” “A Fish Called Wanda” and other films becomes eligible for membership in AARP, the nonprofit organization for people 50 and over, when she celebrates her birthday Nov. 22. “I want to be older,” she tells the magazine. “I actually think there’s an incredible amount of self-knowledge that comes with getting older. I feel way better now than I did when I was 20. I’m stronger, I’m smarter in every way, I’m so much less crazy than I was then.” 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.

Note: Curtis is better known by the Insite in her long list of horror movies like Prom Night, Halloween, The Fog, and Virus!
