Jamie Lee Curtis' Painkiller Addiction

On the heels of suspicions that painkillers caused Michael Jackson's death, actress Jamie Lee Curtis has revealed that she also suffered from an addiction to prescription drugs. "I too found painkillers after a routine cosmetic surgical procedure and I too became addicted," Curtis, 50, wrote in her blog on The Huffington Post. "The morphine becomes the warm bath from which to escape painful reality." Curtis empathizes with Jackson, she writes, whom she believes was trying to numb the pain of his own life. And while she doesn't disclose many details of her struggle, she says she has since overcome it. "My recovery from drug addiction is the single greatest accomplishment of my life," she writes. "But it takes work—hard, painful work."
