Jamie Lee Curtis looks very different in her new film Everything Everywhere All At Once but she recently confirmed that she isn’t wearing any prosthetics in the film. Jamie opened up about her character in the film as well as beauty standards in Hollywood and all over the world.
Jamie plays an IRS inspector in the new movie and she was instructed not to conceal anything! She shared a photo of herself in tight pants, a yellow long-sleeved shirt, an open vest, a gray wig, and glasses. Fans wondered if her belly is a prosthetic but Jamie and the co-director Daniel Scheinert confirmed that it is not.

Daniel shared, “Everyone assumes that her belly in the movie is a prosthetic, but it’s actually her real belly. She was grateful that she was allowed to just let it out.” While Jamie wrote, “My instruction to everybody was: I want there to be no concealing of anything. I’ve been sucking my stomach in since I was 11, when you start being conscious of boys and bodies, and the jeans are super tight.”
She added, “I very specifically decided to relinquish and release every muscle I had that I used to clench to hide the reality. That was my goal. I have never felt more free, creatively and physically.”
Fans and fellow actresses were very inspired by Jamie’s post, specifically Riverdale star Lili Reinhart. She said that a director once told her to “suck in her stomach” and admitted that Hollywood has a long way to go toward body acceptance. She also added that she appreciated that an established actor like Jamie is speaking out on the issue.
