Jamie Lee Curtis has shared that she wishes more concerts would take place in the afternoon rather than late at night, because “mommy goes to bed early.”
Now, Curtis is famously known for her debut role in the 1978’s horror cult classic Halloween.
Soon after, the actress went on to star in a slew of additional horror movies such as The Fog and Prom Night, giving her the Hollywood title the “Scream Queen.”
She has also had a whole host of other fabulous movie roles, such as 2003’s Freaky Friday, which she starred in alongside Lindsay Lohan, and is nothing short of iconic!
Curtis is a hugely celebrated actress across the board, including having a Golden Globe, a People’s Choice Award, and an Emmy to her name.
And that’s not all…
Curtis has also written numerous children’s books, and even made the NYT bestsellers list!
She has also achieved personal, as well as professional, success. Curtis married screenwriter Christopher Guest in 1984 — and when she did, she became an official British baroness!
Oh, and let’s not forget she’s an absolute meme queen. The snaps of her having an argument with a dining companion never fail to make us laugh.
But recently, it’s her physical appearance that has received the most attention, particularly on the topic of aging. In an interview at the Radically Reframing Aging Summit, the sixty-three-year-old shared with host Maria Shriver that she’s had enough of the phrase “anti-aging.”
“This word ‘anti-aging’ has to be struck,” she said.
“I am pro-aging. I want to age with intelligence, and grace, and dignity, and verve, and energy.
“I don’t want to hide from it,” Curtis added. “I don’t want to hide from [my age] it as if it’s a bad thing. We’re all learning that people are on fire from it,” she said.
And on the topic of aging, it seems that Curtis just can’t deal with late-night concerts anymore, sharing that she wants musicians to start performing matinees so she can go to bed at a reasonable time.
Talking about the issue on the Today show, Curtis said: “I’m challenging musicians to do concerts during the day.
“Why are there no matinees? For instance, I love Coldplay, I would love to go see Coldplay. I would love it, but the problem is I am not going to see Coldplay if they start their show at nine and there is an opening act.
“I want to hear Coldplay at 1 pm.
“I think if we filled a stadium of people who want to see a matinee of Coldplay. I think we’re going to start a trend.”
And it seems people agree with her, as one fan on Twitter said: “I genuinely agree with her lmao the main thing that stops me from going to more shows is that they go past midnight most of the time.”
A second added: “I’m not sure why I’ve never questioned this myself. Why can’t I see a concert during the day?”
A third wrote: “She’s on to something. Give me a nice 3 pm, show. I’ll be home before 8.”
“I’m with her. I work at 6am and it’s not as much fun going to a show that doesn’t end til 11 or midnight. Home an hour late,” another echoed.
