JAMIE LEE CURTIS has hit out at the thousands of people who spend hours in the gym striving for the perfect body - insisting that it won't make them happy.
The curvy Fish Called Wanda, A (1988) actress admits she does work out and is conscious of her figure, but wishes people who spent their lives thinking a perfect body would equal a perfect life would understand how mistaken they are.
She says, "Nothing on the exterior will make me feel better, it may seem that way for a short time, but those feelings of inadequacy will surface as soon as that new purse is no longer new. "This buying, this 'gyming', is temporary relief from problems that need a real solution. Without addressing them properly, with a doctor or self-evaluation, you'll repeat a pattern for the rest of your life."
