The Freaky Friday star believes the obsession with plastic surgery has only got worse, especially in the younger generations.
‘The current trend of fillers and procedures, and this obsession with filtering, and the things that we do to adjust our appearance on Zoom are wiping out generations of beauty, she said.
‘I use social media to sell things and amplify things I care about. Period. The rest is cancer. I never read one comment.’
She went on to add: ‘It’s also very dangerous. It’s like giving a chainsaw to a toddler. We just don’t know the longitudinal effect, mentally, spiritually and physically, on a generation of young people who are in agony because of social media, because of the comparisons to others.
‘All of us who are old enough know that it’s all a lie. It’s a real danger to young people.’

Jamie previously spoke about how one bad experience on set prompted her to alter her looks.
Explaining the situation in a chat with Variety in 2019, she said: ‘I naturally had puffy eyes. If you see photographs of me as a child, I look like I haven’t slept. I’ve just always been that person…
‘We were shooting a scene in a courtroom with that kind of high, nasty fluorescent light, and it came around to my coverage in the scene, and [the cameraman] said, “I’m not shooting her today. Her eyes are too puffy!”

‘I was so mortified and so embarrassed and had just so much shame about it that after that movie, I went and had routine plastic surgery to remove the puffiness!’
Jamie will reprise her iconic role of Final Girl Laurie Strode in Halloween Kills, which is the follow-up to 2018’s Halloween.
She soared to fame in the original slasher of the same name, which was released in 1978, and appeared in sequels Halloween II, Halloween H20 and Halloween: Resurrection.
The 2018 sequel was a direct follow-up to Halloween 1978, retconning the events of the other sequels Laurie Strode appeared in (the character was murdered in 2002’s Halloween: Resurrection).
