In sharing her daughter’s new identity, Curtis, 62, opened up about her new understanding of gender. She noted in the interview that the notion of gender as fixed is one of the biggest “old ideas” the Freaky Friday actress previously had.

Curtis also reflected on her life, explaining that the most transformative events of her life are the ones she never saw coming — including her marriage to Guest.

She also recalls getting a call out of the blue from a director named David Gordon Green with a movie offer. Curtis signed on to do it, and the film — the 2018 reprise of Halloween — grossed $256 million in the box office.

“It was one of the franchise’s biggest openings ever, and it starred a woman over 50,” Curtis said. “I was like, ‘Wait, what? I didn’t see that coming,’ Boom!”

The Trading Places star also talked about her own journey of love, calling herself a “deep, serious romantic.” She called Guest, who she’s been married to since 1984, her “one and only,” but notes that she has no “big delusions of grandeur.”

“That’s the long marriage. It’s the safety of knowing his car is in the garage, that I’m not alone, and that he’s here,” she noted.

Curtis also described her life these days as a “constant metamorphosis.”
