Jamie Lee Curtis took to Instagram in a heartwarming post to celebrate her daughter Ruby on Transgender Day Of Visibility.
The Everything Everywhere All At Once actor - who has just come off the back of her first-ever Oscar win - shared a sweet snap of herself and her daughter to mark the occasion, posting the photo alongside a meaningful message.
Sharing a photo of herself alongside her 27-year-old daughter, Curtis wrote: "Love is love. A mother's love knows no judgment.
"As a mother, I stand in total solidarity with my children as they move forward in the universe as their authentic selves with their own minds and bodies and ideas.
"On this trans visibility day my daughter and I are visible. #transvisibilityday."
Speaking to People magazine in 2021, the Halloween star opened up on navigating her daughter's gender identity, admitting it's 'speaking a new language'.
"It's learning new terminology and words. I am new at it. I am not someone who is pretending to know much about it," she explained.
"And I'm going to blow it, I'm going to make mistakes. I would like to try to avoid making big mistakes.
"You slow your speech down a little. You become a little more mindful about what you're saying. How you're saying it. You still mess up, I've messed up today twice. We're human."
The actor wasn't the only famous face to mark Trans Day of Visibilty, which happens every year on March 31 to raise awareness of transphobia.
The Last Of Us actor Bella Ramsey – who is non-binary – tweeted a childhood picture on Saturday, alongside the message: "I didn’t know the word non-binary in this picture. But I knew what it meant. Inherently. Because I always was, and always will be.
"Lotsa love to all of my trans, enby and gender funky friends."
Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has also been making his support for trans people loud and clear, as he chairs a series for The Trevor Project which highlights the experiences of trans and non-binary people.
Speaking in the first episode of Sharing Space, the actor expressed his doubts about people who identify as being 'allies' to the LGBTQ+ community.
Radcliffe said: "I said this to you all earlier, about my weird little problems with the word 'ally,' just because anytime you hear somebody self-refer to themself as an ally, I'm always like, 'I'm suspicious of you'.
"But there is an original meaning to that word, and there [are] some people who embody that very powerfully."
