Jamie Lee Curtis Hints At Foot Injury From Victorious Oscar Jump


Jamie Lee Curtis has had an eventful last few months. Last spring, her daughter got married, and her latest critically-acclaimed movie, Everything Everywhere All at Once premiered. These past few weeks, then, marked the subsequent awards and praises for EEAAO and her performance in it. But also recently, it seems Curtis might have suffered a foot injury, as suggested by a new Instagram post.

For her performance in EEAAO, Curtis won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress; it is her very first Academy Award. The film and its cast also won several other accolades, including the Golden Globe for Best Actress for Michelle Yeoh, and Critics’ Choice Movie Award for Best Picture. Unfortunately, while Curtis celebrated this personal milestone, she might have sustained a debilitating injury.

On Friday, Curtis took to Instagram to share side-by-side photos. The one on the left saw her from the Oscars stage, wearing her now famous pinkish gold-beige dress. The picture captures her midway through a leap, with both her high-heeled unmistakably up off the ground as Curtis celebrates winning her first-ever Oscar.

But the post may be acting as a story in two photos. The second picture is very different. Instead of gilded in the glamorous light of the Dolby Theatre, it just shows a foot sheathed in a medical boot and propped up next to the statuette. “The THRILL of VICTORY,” she captioned the post, “and the AGONY of DA FEET! @everythingeverywheremovie.”

Curtis, 64, and Yeoh, 60, winning Oscars was a big step for women in the industry, defying ageist traditions in Hollywood. At a personal level, the occasion was poignant for Curtis, whose parents Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh were nominated for Oscars but never received the statuette themselves. “I just won an Oscar!” she shouted out to her departed parents.

Curtis also thanked “all of the people who have supported the genre movies I have made all these years, the thousands and hundreds of thousands of people,” saying “we just won an Oscar together!” In the audience, Best Supporting Actress nominee Angela Bassett appeared visibly upset with the final results, which coupled with the injury Curtis apparently suffered that night, made the 95th Academy Awards very eventful indeed.

By time of writing, representatives for Curtis did not respond to PEOPLE‘s request for comment on her injury or its relation to the award ceremony.
