Jamie Lee Curtis Credits Late Comedian Richard Lewis With Making Her 25-Year Sobriety Possible

Jamie Lee Curtis recently marked a quarter-century of sobriety, sharing a photo of herself with a commemorative token for the milestone on her Instagram in early February. This week, shortly after his death, she attributed the beginning of that 25-year journey to her friend, comedian Richard Lewis.

In a series of Instagram posts on Wednesday, Curtis mourned her friend and Anything But Love co-star. “He also is the reason I am sober,” she wrote in one caption. “He helped me. I am forever grateful for him for that act of grace alone.”

“I’m weeping as I write this,” she continued. “Strange way of saying thank you to a sweet and funny man. Rest in laughter, Richard.”

Curtis reminisced about how Lewis came to star alongside her on Anything But Love’s four-season run on ABC from 1989 to 1992.

“He made me laugh, which is the one thing that a strong, capable woman can’t really do for herself,” she wrote. “He got the part when I snort laughed when he mispronounced the word Bundt cake.”

In another post on the same day, she again thanked Lewis for his part in her sobriety.

“Richard Lewis helped people laugh and he helped people heal through his tireless, indefatigable belief in sobriety,” she wrote alongside a red carpet photo of the two. “The laughs may stop but the healing never does. It’s the power of recovery and fellowship and solidarity and it’s available everywhere all at once. A phone call away. Rest in the knowledge that you helped people, Richard. First of all, me.”
