July 29, 2021 – While in conversation with AARP The Magazine, the Freaky Friday actor spoke about her journey towards sobriety which took her 22 years to reach.

“I’ve been sober 22 years, off of an alcohol and pain pill addiction,” she said, adding that the “process of being a sober person puts you in the one day at a time mentality.”

“Try to stay out of the future and try to forget the past, because it’s over and you can’t do anything about it anyway. Try to live a present life,” she said. 

Lee Curtis had earlier spoken about the affective of addiction during a chat with ET back in 2002. 

“It kills people. It killed my brother. It kills young people, old people, it ruins families. It’s ruinous,” she added.
