Jamie Lee Curtis' transgender daughter Ruby has made her first red carpet appearance to show her true self to the whole world.
The 26-year-old donned a silver frock alongside her actor mum for the Hollywood premiere of Halloween Ends.
Curtis hit the red carpet with her two daughters Ruby and Annie, with the trio radiating precisely the sort of glitz, glam, and confidence needed to obliterate a major Hollywood shindig.
Ruby's attendance at the premiere marks her first red carpet appearance since she came out as transgender in 2020.
Curtis took to social media to gush over her two daughters who shared the spotlight with her on premiere night.
After the premiere, Ruby also flanked her mother at Curtis' hand and footprint ceremony at the TCL Chinese Theatre.
The theatre's handprints-footprints tribute has been a prestigious Hollywood honour for the past 95 years.
Previous honorees include Judy Garland, Bette Davis, and Elizabeth Taylor.
Curtis' husband, Christopher Guest, attended, as well as Curtis' other daughter Annie and Ruby's wife, Kynthia.
Curtis recently opened up about her daughter's experience and the transphobia Ruby faces in an interview with Spain's Cadena SER radio.
"I have a trans daughter. There are threats against her life just [for] her existence as a human being," the Halloween franchise star 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."
The 63-year-old added: "So Jamie Lee Curtis is scared, and you should be too.
"And Jamie Lee Curtis has a voice, and she's trying to use it. And you should 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 said.
Curtis and her husband Christopher Guest adopted their daughters Ruby and Annie in 1996 and 1986 respectively.
Ruby came out as trans to her parents in 2020 and spoke to People in 2021 about the ordeal.
"It was scary – Just the sheer fact of telling them something about me they didn't know," Ruby said.
"It was intimidating – but I wasn't worried. 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.
"They finally get to see who I've always been, you know, inside, but now I finally get to show it on the outside."
