In the interview, which was conducted with Ruby’s permission, Jamie Lee described how she has tossed out the ‘old idea’ that gender is fixed and is instead leaning into the idea that life is a ‘constant metamorphosis.’ 

She also spoke excitedly about Ruby’s upcoming nuptials.  

‘She and her fiancé will get married next year at a wedding that I will officiate,’ the Halloween star added. 

Curtis and Guest struggled with infertility and adopted Annie through an agency in 1986, and nine years later brought Ruby into their family.

She wrote the book Tell Me Again About The Night I Was Born to in 1996 to stress the importance of sharing birth stories with adopted children.

And while wedding bells will soon ring in the family, Curtis told the publication she doesn’t have any grandchildren: ‘Not yet, but I do hope to.’ 

Curtis also discussed being 22 years sober after secretly battling an addiction to pain pills and alcohol. 

She explained that the ‘process of being a sober person puts you in a one day at a time mentality.’ 

Jamie stood proudly in her status and noted she was : ‘just a sober person — flawed, contradictory, broken and redeemed.’

Her sobriety journey has taught her comfort in living for each day and letting go of the past.

‘I am somebody who sheds every day,’ she says. ‘Let’s get rid of that, I don’t need that. It’s all about old ideas that don’t work anymore.’  

Earlier this year, she wrote on Instagram: ‘I’m breaking the cycle that has basically destroyed the lives of generations in my family.

‘Getting sober remains my single greatest accomplishment … bigger than my husband, bigger than both of my children and bigger than any work, success, failure. Anything.’

Born to acting legends Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh, Jamie Lee found her own fame with her 1978 acting debut in John Carpenter’s Halloween.

She cemented herself as a scream queen and went on to star in a string of horror films, including The Fog, Prom Night and Terror Train, and would later reprise her role of Laurie Strode for multiple Halloween sequels, including one film due out this year with another set for 2022.

Curtis earned Golden Globe awards for her roles in the 1990 sitcom Anything But Love and the 1995 action comedy with Arnold Schwarzenegger, True Lies.

With dozens of roles under her belt throughout her decades-long career, Jamie has also dedicated time and energy to philanthropic causes, including working with the Children Affected by AIDS Foundation and the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles.
