Jamie Lee Curtis Reveals Painkiller Addiction

With buzz building about the possible connection between Michael Jackson's death and painkillers, actress Jamie Lee Curtis has made a powerful admission: She was hooked on them – and understands how hard it is to quit.

"I too found painkillers after a routine cosmetic surgical procedure and I too became addicted," Curtis, 50, writes in a blog for the Huffington Post. "The morphine becomes the warm bath from which to escape painful reality. I was a lucky one. I was able to see that the pain had started long ago and far away and that the finding the narcotic was merely a matter of time."

Jamie Lee Curtis Freed from 'Rock of Addiction'

Originally posted 06/16/2008 03:50PM

Jamie Lee Curtis is turning 50 and shouting it from the rooftops – along with a few lessons she's learned along the way.

"Fifty is a big corner to turn. It used to mean being put out to pasture, but it's the opposite with me," the actress, who will reach the half-century point on Nov. 22, tells More magazine for its July/August issue. "I feel more vibrant; I'm more active than I've ever been."

And more adventurous: Earlier this year, Curtis dropped her top on a magazine cover in order to encourage women to accept their bodies and the beauty of aging naturally.

Now, the free-spirited actress is baring her soul about her struggles with addiction, and how others can face their problems head-on.

Jamie Lee Curtis says she knows how Miley Cyrus feels – to a point.

"I too was a little embarrassed by my recent topless 'scandal' and the subsequent parodies," Curtis, 49, who dropped her top for AARP's magazine, blogs for The Huffington Post, "but I am an adult woman. I protected myself during the shoot and I can take the heat. I only wish that her guardians had protected her."
