Jamie Lee Curtis has given her Oscar trophy they/them pronouns.
During a Tuesday appearance on the Today show, the Everything Everywhere All At Once actress shared that she would refer to her new Oscar trophy with they/them pronouns out of respect for her trans daughter, Ruby.
Curtis took home the prize for Best Supporting Actress for her role in the 2022 multiverse-hopping movie at this year’s Academy Awards ceremony.
“In support of my daughter Ruby, I’m having them be a they/them,” the actress explained of the Oscar statuette. “I’m just going to call them ‘them’, they/them, and they are doing great.”
She added, “They are settling in.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Curtis expressed her disbelief at winning the award.
“I never thought in a million years that I would have this couple days,” she told hosts Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie. “I’m very moved by the whole thing.”
The Halloween star first discussed her daughter’s transition in a July 2021 interview with AARP Magazine, saying she and her husband Christopher Guest “have watched in wonder and pride as our son became our daughter Ruby”.
