Jamie Lee Curtis has given her fans an insight into how her Oscars night went - revealing that she didn't hang around and went and got a burger instead.

The actress, 65, got glammed up on Sunday night to head to the 96th Academy Awards at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood where she was presenting an award on the evening,

Jamie Lee took to the stage to present the award for Best Supporting Actress to winner Da'Vine Joy Randolph, who won for her role in The Holdovers, beating the likes of America Ferrera in Barbie, Danielle Brooks in The Color Purple, Emily Blunt in Oppenheimer, and Jodie Foster in Nyad.

After appearing on stage alongside other past winners of the category, including Rita Moreno, Lupita Nyong'o, Mary Steenburgen, and Regina King, Jamie Lee made a swift exit to go and get a burger and fries instead.

The actress took to Instagram to share a snap of how her night ended - pretty soon after she left the stage as it was still broad daylight outside - as she sat in her car and headed to the fast food joint.

The Freaky Friday actress showed fans that she was still in her Oscars dress and full glam as she sat in the back seat, before taking a snap of her server and then showing off the burger, fries, and drink she'd ordered from the iconic California food chain.

She told her followers: "FLY IN [check] GET FLUFFED AND FOLDED [check] PRESENT AT OSCARS [check] GO TO @inandout_burger [check] FLY AWAY [check]."

Fans were loving seeing how down to earth Jamie Lee was, shunning the glitz and glamor of the Oscars in favor of the drive-thru instead.

They commented: "Really just presented and dipped. I respect it," and: "You’re so my vibe!!! Love this! #spiritanimal."

Others added: "This is EXACTLY how you do it," "Yep. Keeping it real. Love the In ‘n’ Out burger," and: "Any excuse for In’n’Out!"

Many commended her on nailing her day, adding: "Heck yasss you did!!! Being real mama…home by 10 too!" and: "Sounds like the perfect day. In and out. Job done. You look fabulous!"

Grabbing an In-N-Out after going to an awards show has become something of a tradition in Hollywood, with Paul Giamatti doing the same after winning a Golden Globe in January for The Holdovers.

While he was spotted by fans grabbing his food, he later said on an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!: "Nobody really cared, actually."

Jimmy, who hosted this year's Oscars, told People on March 2: "The award show tradition is In-N-Out after the show. And I think part of why is because when people are in L.A., one of the things on their list is to go to In-N-Out — and there are a lot of people that are in L.A. just for the Oscars — so they wind up going like, 'Okay.'

"Also, you get very hungry, so In-N-Out is definitely the award show tradition. Nothing against McDonald's, but on award show night, it's In-N-Out."

Jamie Lee also won her first Oscar last year for her role in Everything Everywhere All At Once.

We can't think of any better way to end a big night out than with a burger and fries!
