Jamie Lee Curtis Opens Up About Battling Drug Addiction In Light Of Prince's Death

| Filed under: DrugsPrinceSad SadRehabJamie Lee CurtisScream Queens

Jamie Lee Curtis

Wow. This is powerful.

In light of new reports suggesting Prince died as a result of drug addiction, Jamie Lee Curtis penned an emotional essay about her own personal battle with painkillers.

In hopes of raising awareness about the dangers of opiate use, the 57-year-old actress wrote in Huffington Post:

"I too, waited anxiously for a prescription to be filled for the opiate I was secretly addicted to. I too, took too many at once. I too, sought to kill emotional and physical pain with pain killers. Kill it. Make it stop.

Too many of our fellow humans, famous, infamous, and not famous at all, have sought the same relief. The symbolism of James Taylor's Fire and Rain,an anthem of addiction, seems more poignant as now it is a purple rain, another loss to drug addiction."
