Jamie Lee Curtis is ending one chapter in her career but still looking ahead.

Almost 45 years after the first “Halloween” movie was released, the actress is gearing up to play Laurie Strode one last time in the latest installment in the horror franchise, “Halloween Ends.”

Speaking with TODAY, Curtis discussed the finality, “They’ve come up with a very good way to end this ‘thrillogy.’ We’ve made three films, I think it completes the story in a sad, interesting way.”

As Curtis winds down this career arc that jumpstarted hers, she is once again taking up the mantle of criticizing stigmas with the culture of aging in Hollywood and in general.

She’s told her daughters before, “don’t mess with your face” and also has described herself as “pro-aging.”

“I did plastic surgery,” she said in her TODAY interview. “I put Botox in my head. Does Botox make the big wrinkle go away? Yes. But then you look like a plastic figurine.”

Which is why she wants those younger than her to listen up, “Walk a mile in my shoes. I have done it. It did not work. And all I see is people now focusing their life on that.”

“Halloween Ends” hits theaters Oct. 14 and arrives on Peacock the same day.
