Jamie Lee Curtis has shared for the first time that her 25-year-old daughter Ruby is transgender and that the Golden Globe-winning actor will be officiating her wedding next year.
Curtis made the announcement with her daughter’s permission in a new cover interview with AARP The Magazine.
She said she and her husband Christopher Guest “have watched in wonder and pride as our son became our daughter Ruby”.
Curtis told the magazine that Ruby, a computer gaming editor, is planning to get married next year.
“She and her fiance will get married next year at a wedding that I will officiate,” the “True Lies” star said.
Ruby is one of two children adopted by Curtis and Guest. The pair have another daughter, 34-year-old Annie, a dance instructor.
Last year, Curtis announced that she would produce, direct, and star in “How We Sleep at Night: The Sara Cunningham Story,” a film about a real-life “devout Christian mother to come to terms with her son being gay.”
“I was moved by her journey,” Curtis said. “And I continue to be thrilled as her movement is catching on.”
“I hope to do justice to her story and the story of so many marginalized people in the LGBTQ community.”
Curtis starred in the 2019 “Knives Out.” She will be featured in “Halloween Kills,” scheduled for release in October this year in the US and in the UK, and in Halloween Ends in 2022.
