Actress Jamie Lee Curtis introduces transgender daughter Ruby

62-year-old “Halloween” star, Jamie Lee Curtis has revealed that her 25-year-old youngest child is a transgender.

The "Freaky Friday" actress told People Magazine that she and husband Christopher Guest "have watched in wonder and pride as their son became their daughter Ruby." Ruby who works as a video editor for a YouTube gaming personality, came out to her parents, Hollywood star Curtis and comedy director Chris Guest last year.

Jamie admitted on Wednesday October 20, that “learning new terminology and words” has been a challenge at times, but she is determined to put in the work for Ruby. She also revealed that it has made her thoughtful.

The actress told the publication;

“It’s speaking a new language. I am new at it. I am not someone who is pretending to know much about it. And I’m going to blow it, I’m going to make mistakes. I would like to try to avoid making big mistakes.

“You slow your speech down a little. You become a little more mindful about what you’re saying, how you’re saying it. You still mess up; I’ve messed up today twice. We’re human. But if one person reads this, sees a picture of Ruby and me and says, ‘I feel free to say this is who I am,’ then it’s worth it.”

Recounting her experiences publicly for the first time, Ruby told People magazine that the prospect of telling her mother and father “something about me they didn’t know” was “scary”.

She said;

“It was scary, just the sheer fact of telling them something about me they didn’t know.

“It was intimidating but I wasn’t worried. They had been so accepting of me my entire life.”

Ruby revealed that she was “about 16” when she began to think about her gender identity. She told the publication;

“A friend of mine who is trans asked me what my gender was. I told them, ‘Well, I’m male.’ After, I’d dwell on the thought. I knew I was, maybe not Ruby per se, but I knew I was different.Latest Post
