Jamie Lee Curtis says her transgender daughter was threatened with death

Jamie Lee Curtis is opening up about the struggles her daughter and other members of the transgender community face on a daily basis.

While talking about her career as a scream queen and “Halloween Ends” in an interview with Spanish publication Cadena SER, the 63-year-old actress revealed that the emotions she displays in her movies come from a real source. of fear.

Curtis described herself as “incredibly emotional” and said she had been so successful in the horror genre because her reactions were “real”. She explained that her sensitivity allows her to draw on the real-world issues and dangers facing our society today.

“There are real threats,” she said in a conversation with the outlet published Oct. 10. “I have a trans daughter. There are threats to her life, just her existence as a human being. There are people who want to destroy her, and people like her.

Curtis’ 26-year-old daughter Ruby Guest, whom she shares with husband Christopher Guest, came out publicly as transgender in 2020.

During his interview, Curtis compared transphobia to fascism. She said: ‘Like we didn’t learn what the outcome was. The extermination of human beings. It’s terrifying.

Referring to herself in the third person, she continued, “So Jamie Lee Curtis is scared, and you should be too.”

The “Knives Out” star ended his response by encouraging people to speak out against transphobia.

“Jamie Lee Curtis has a voice, and she tries to use it, and you should too,” she said. “And that’s how we change things, is we think about them, we get to know them, and then we use our voices to call attention to them and to fight against them.”

Last year, Ruby and her famous mom spoke to People about her coming out to her parents.

“It was scary – just the simple act of telling them something about me that they didn’t know,” Ruby recalled. “It was intimidating, but I wasn’t worried. They’ve been so accepting of me all my life.

Ruby texted her mother after originally planning to share the news with her parents at their Los Angeles home. Curtis said there were “tears” after his daughter spoke to him.

Curtis shared that she made mistakes while supporting her daughter.

“It’s speaking a new language,” she told People at the time. “It’s learning new terminology and new words. I am new in this field. I’m not someone who pretends to know a lot about it. And I’m gonna blow it up, I’m gonna make mistakes. I would try to avoid making big mistakes.

In May, Ruby tied the knot with her partner Kynthia in a cosplay ceremony held in Curtis’ garden.

The proud mother officiated the nuptials and gushed about the wedding on Instagram.

She uploaded several photos from Ruby and Kynthia’s special day. Alongside a photo of the newlyweds kissing, Curtis clapped, “YES THEY DO AND DID IT! MARRIED! RUBY and KYNTHIA 05/29/2022.

Ruby and her sister Annie Guest, 35, joined their mother for the red carpet premiere of “Halloween Ends” on October 12. The film will be Curtis’ final appearance in a horror franchise that has spanned decades.

Curtis posed alongside his two daughters as the trio held hands. The actor posted a photo of the three of them on Instagram. The caption read: “My family. Proudest mother. Loving support.

Over the past week, Curtis has been promoting his upcoming movie and also using his platform to address societal issues. She stopped by Monday TODAY and condemned Kanye West’s recent anti-Semitic tweets.

In a tweet that has since been deleted from Twitter, West, who goes by the name Ye, wrote that he was planning on “doing the con 3 death on JEWS.” The tweet received backlash on social media platforms.

Curtis said she “burst into tears” after seeing the hateful post. “I woke up and burst into tears. Defcon 3 on the Jewish people? What are you doing?” she says.

She called his tweet “odious” and said she hoped the rapper would “get some help.”

“It’s bad enough that fascism is on the rise in the world,” she told Hoda Kotb. “But on Twitter, on a portal, to pour that? As if the Jewish people hadn’t had enough trouble?

West’s Instagram account has been restricted for other problematic posts, and a Twitter spokesperson confirmed on Oct. 9 that his account had been locked for violating the social media platform’s policies.
