Jamie Lee Curtis Calling For Matinee Concerts Is An Anthem For Early Risers Everywhere

Sure, early birds get the worm, but what they miss out on includes dancing at clubs, laughing at comedy shows, and having a social life beyond brunch. If you ask most early risers, they will likely agree that they would kill to go to certain events that their night owl friends enjoy, if only they were held when the sun was still shining and their energy levels were high. However, once their PJs are on, there’s just no going back. Fear not, morning people, you have a new champion and her name is Jamie Lee Curtis. The actress recently made headlines as an early-to-bed advocate after declining an invitation to an Oscar nominees dinner at 7:30 p.m. Curtis earned a Best Supporting Actress nomination for her role in Everything, Everywhere, All At Once. This might have been her first Oscar nomination ever, but that didn't change the fact that “mommy goes to bed early.” In a recent interview, Curtis said, "I love the morning. I love the idea that I control the universe in the morning,” noting that her usual wake-up time is 4 a.m. “Nothing good happens after 9 p.m.” While on the red carpet for the Independent Film Spirit Awards, Curtis offered a suggestion, challenging bands like Coldplay and U2 to offer matinees. Mentioning Bruce Springsteen and agreeing that matinees could be as late as 2 p.m., she said, “I will come and hear your 5-hour concert, Bruce, at 2 o'clock, and I'm gonna be home and in bed by 7:30.” Early risers of all walks of life couldn’t agree more.
