Tonight on PBS, I have an open and transparent conversation with award-winning actress and best-selling children's author Jamie Lee Curtis. The star candidly discusses her personal struggle with addiction and her 15 years of sobriety, among other things.

In the clip below, Curtis reflects on the recent death of Philip Seymour Hoffman and how it's not just superstars like Hoffman who are impacted by America's drug problem.
