Jamie Lee Curtis graces the cover of the October issue of Good Housekeeping. The 53-year-old actress/author opened up about her addiction, fears, marriage, family and being sober for 13 years.

Curtis sported her signature cropped hair and natural gray hair on the magazine cover. Curtis has recently celebrated her 28th wedding anniversary with husband Christopher Guest. Her kids Annie, 25, and Tom, 16, are growing up and Curtis' career is at a very good point.

She talked about her latest children's book, My Brave Year of Firsts: Tries, Sighs, and High Fives.
Curtis also shared about her greatest accomplishment in life.

"Getting sober (13 years ago) was the single bravest thing I've ever done and will ever do in my life. "Being courageous enough to acknowledge it privately with my family and friends. Working really hard at solidifying it, getting support around it, and being healthy. And then talking about it publicly. That is thesingle greatest accomplishment of my life."

She also shared struggles in raising a family and how she felt like a failure sometimes. "I feel like a failure as a mother a lot, because despite my best efforts, I have replicated parts of how I was parented (that I didn't want to)," she confessed.

"Even though I vowed not to and felt like I was doing it so differently, in many ways I repeated some of the same problems," Curtis continued.

The magazine will hit newsstands on September 11, 2012.
