Jamie Lee Curtis refers to the Oscar statue using the pronouns They/Them

Curtis and Christopher Guest’s daughter Ruby came out as transgender in 2020.

Jamie Lee Curtis wants the Oscars for ‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’ to be inclusive.

The Oscar winner, who accepted the trophy for best supporting actress, was asked by “Today” co-host Savannah Guthrie if she was “named” in reference to the statue. Curtis quickly clarified that the statue is genderless, as a statement of transgender rights.

“I support my daughter Ruby. I want it to be them/them,” Curtis said. “I’ll just call them ‘them’. They/them, and they’re doing great, they’re fitting in, and I never in a million years saw that I’d have these few days, and it’s really affecting me. thing.”

Curtis’ daughter Ruby came out as transgender in 2020.

The Oscar winner dealt with gender-based award categories.

“The bigger question is how do you get everyone involved when you have binary choices, which is very difficult, and as the mother of a trans daughter, I completely understand that,” Curtis said backstage at the 2023 Oscars. “And to break down the categories by gender, I’m worried that it’s going to reduce the chances of women, which I’ve worked hard to promote. The most important thing is inclusivity and more women… basically just more fucking women anywhere, anytime, at the same time.”

The “Halloween” old boy compared using they/them pronouns to “speaking a new language” in an interview People magazine at the time of Ruby’s release.

“Learning new terminology and words. I’m new to it. I’m not one to pretend to know much about it. And I will blow it, I will make mistakes. I want to avoid making big mistakes,” Curtis said. “You slow down your speech a little.” You pay a little more attention to what you say. How do you say. You still mess up, I messed up twice today. We are human beings. But if someone reads this, sees a picture of Ruby and me, and says, “I dare say that’s me,” then it’s worth it.

Curtis added that “gender identity and sexual orientation are two separate things… I’m not proselytizing and I’m not trying to force anything on people. I’m just saying, “This is our family’s experience.”
