Jamie Lee Curtis’s addiction has been in the headlines before, including when she spoke about it in an interview with Variety in 2019. She says a friend of hers once watched her take five Vicodin pills consecutively with a glass of wine.
Curtis went on to say that at that point in her life the ‘mold was up’ because someone knew how bad her addiction was. She added that it had been ten years to abuse Vicodin, and she knew it was time to move on and get better.
According to Curtis, she entered a recovery program a few months later and has been completely sober ever since. The last time we heard from Curtis was when she touched Chris Evans’ alleged nude photo leak.
Jamie said she was sure Chris had leaked the photos on purpose to draw attention to himself.
