Sleep schedule is important to Jamie Lee Curtis, even more than attending Oscars party. The Freaky Friday actress made it to the nomination list of the Academy Awards at the age of 64 for her work in Everything Everywhere All at Once. But while she is honored, the actress and the family woman is handling things on her own terms.
But when THR asked her about the nomination, she slipped in a little secret. She explained that there is a special nominees dinner by the Academy Awards, which she has refused to attend. Why? It “starts at 7:30, and I have declined,” revealed the actress. She acknowledged how it may seem confusing, but “Mommy goes to bed early,” she explained in her own hilarious way. The actress calculated how the event’s dinner will not actually start till 9 pm, which will be way past her scheduled time.
