Jamie Lee Curtis is having her moment after her first Oscar win in her 45-year career, but she's bringing her loved ones into the spotlight with her. Appearing on 'Today' on March 14, the 'Everything Everywhere All at Once' actress told hosts Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie that she will be referring to her Oscar statue using they/them pronouns in support of her daughter Ruby, whom she shared in 2021 is transgender, and who also uses they/them pronouns.
As she lifted the statuette to her face, Curtis said, “Here they are! In support of my daughter Ruby, I’m having them be a they/them." She added of the golden figure, “they are doing great, and they’re settling in," and said she's "very moved" by these past few days.
For LGBTQ+ kids coming to terms with their identity, there is nothing more important than creating an atmosphere of unconditional love where they're able to feel comfortable in their own bodies and confident in their support systems.
