After coming out to the public as transgender, Jamie Lee Curtis’ daughter walked the red carpet for the first time.
The 63-year-old actress made an appearance on the red carpet with her two daughters, Ruby and Annie, at the Halloween Ends movie premiere in Hollywood while wearing a stunning red outfit.
Ruby, her 26-year-old daughter and a video editor, appeared with her mother and sister in a silver gown, marking her first red carpet appearance after coming out as transgender in 2021.
Curtis took to her Instagram to share a photo from the movie event and couldn’t help but gush about her daughters to her 4.5 million followers, writing: “My family. Proudest mother. Loving support.”
Annie and Ruby were adopted by the Everything, Everything at Once actress and her husband Christopher Guest in 1986 and 1996, respectively.
Ruby told her parents she was transgender in 2020, and in 2021 she gave a special interview to People about how she told them via text messaging.
Simply giving them something about me that they didn’t know was terrifying, Ruby remarked. Although it seemed terrifying, I was unconcerned.
“They had been so accepting of me my entire life. Like, people will still remember me for who I was, but I haven’t changed that,” she said, adding, “They finally get to see who I’ve always been, you know, inside, but now I finally get to show it on the outside.”
The mother of two has been open about her daughter’s journey, and in a recent interview with Spain’s Cadena SER radio, she spoke about Ruby’s experience and the transphobia she faces.
“I have a trans daughter. There are threats against her life just for her existence as a human being,” she said. “There are people that want to annihilate her and people like her.”
“The level of hatred… [It’s] as if we haven’t learned from fascism, as if we haven’t learned what the result of that is: The extermination of human beings. That is terrifying,” she continued. “So Jamie Lee Curtis is scared, and you should be too.”
“And that’s how we change things. We think about them, we learn about them and then we use our voices to bring attention to them and fight against them,” Curtis added.
After the premiere, Ruby also joined her mother, her wife Kynthia, and Annie at the Freaky Friday actress’ hand and footprint ceremony at the TCL Chinese Theater.
The Theater’s handprints-footprints award has been a Hollywood honor for the past 95 years with previous prestigious honorees including Judy Garland, Bette Davis, and Elizabeth Taylor.
Also, Curtis’s final Halloween movie premiere comes four months after she officiated the wedding of Ruby and Kynthia during a backyard event where attendants came in cosplay attire.
“We’re gonna have a beautiful picnic in the backyard. I’m really excited,” the Knives out actress told Jimmy Kimmel Live! host Jimmy Kimmel about the wedding in March.
“Both my children will have been married in my backyard, which brings me to tears,” she explained. “It’s so much more meaningful. Just forgetting all of show-off business – being a parent, having both of your children married in your backyard.”
