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.
