Jamie Lee Curtis shared some meaningful messages on social media over the weekend. On Friday (March 11th) the Friday the 13th star shared a photo of herself in character from her film Everything Everywhere All at Once. In the film, she plays IRS auditor Deirdre Beaubeirdra, a role for which she said there would be “no concealing of anything.”
“In the world, there is an industry — a billion-dollar, trillion-dollar industry — about hiding things. Concealers. Body-shapers. Fillers. Procedures. Clothing. Hair accessories. Hair products. Everything to conceal the reality of who we are,” she wrote.
“My instruction to everybody was: I want there to be no concealing of anything. I've been sucking my stomach in since I was 11, when you start being conscious of boys and bodies, and the jeans are super tight. I very specifically decided to relinquish and release every muscle I had that I used to clench to hide the reality. That was my goal. I have never felt more free creatively and physically,” she continued.
On Sunday (March 13th), Curtis also shared a post in celebration of her daughter’s birthday. “Today is the birthday of my trans daughter,” she wrote. “I am proud and grateful to be the parent of a trans child and am sending support to all of the trans families across the US who are being targeted in this moment by conservative legislatures.”
