Jamie Lee Curtis' birthday typically falls on Thanksgiving, and James Corden asked her:

Did you do anything special this year? Were there any big plans?

No, James. I'm old! I'm old; I'm married, our kids are gone... No, we canceled dinner. Chris had a little cold.

And though Jamie's husband, Christopher Guest, was her excuse to cancel plans and opt for Netflix and chill instead at this time, she thinks kids are still the best way to ditch everything and everyone.

My favorite dinner party is one that gets canceled an hour before I have to be there. It's glorious. It's the reason to have children because you can immediately blame it on them. You know, 'They have diarrhea,' and then right away, they don't want you to come. They really don't want you to come.

Corden then joked:

It's worth having kids just for the lies. That's absolutely the reason to do it.

Curtis jokingly concluded that that's the only reason why she had gotten Annie and Thomas.

This is the sole purpose of having kids! Totally kidding. My children are my life, but I totally would use them as an excuse, and they make awkward situations where you don't want to be less awkward.
