Jamie Lee Curtis Embraces They/Them Pronouns for Her Oscar, Supporting Daughter Ruby

NOTE: This article is 3 months old and may not include the most recent information.

In a touching show of support for her transgender daughter Ruby, Jamie Lee Curtis has decided to use they/them pronouns for her newly-acquired Oscar statuette. The esteemed actress won the award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in the critically acclaimed film “Everything Everywhere All at Once.”

During a post-Oscars interview on the “Today” show, Curtis was asked by host Savannah Guthrie if she had named her Oscar statue. The emotional actress responded, “I’m in support of my daughter Ruby. I’m having them be a they/them. I’m going to just call them ‘them.’ They/them, and they are doing great, they’re settling in, and I just, in my life, I never saw it in a million years that I’d have this couple days, and I’m very moved by the whole thing.”

Curtis has been open about her journey to support her daughter, who came out as transgender in 2020. She shared her experiences with People magazine in 2021, admitting that adapting to new language and terminology has been a learning curve. Curtis acknowledged that she would make mistakes but emphasized the importance of being mindful and slowing down speech to avoid making significant errors.

Her openness and support for her daughter have made a significant impact. Curtis hopes that sharing her experiences might encourage others to feel free to express their true selves.

After her Oscars win, Curtis also advocated for increased gender parity within the Oscars branches to promote inclusivity in future nominations. While recognizing the challenges of including everyone in binary categories, she expressed concerns about de-gendering categories potentially diminishing opportunities for women. Curtis emphasized the need for inclusivity and more representation for women in the industry.

“Everything Everywhere All at Once” emerged as a big winner at the Oscars, with seven awards, including Best Picture. Co-stars Michelle Yeoh and Ke Huy Quan also took home awards for Best Actress and Supporting Actor, respectively.
