What moms will do for their kids!
After nearly 45 years of a successful film career, Jamie Lee Curtis obviously loves to act. But does she have to get into character at her daughter Ruby's wedding too? It seems that way.
While bantering with Jimmy Kimmel recently, Curtis revealed that her daughter is having a "cosplay wedding" and asked her to dress as Jaina Proudmoore, the powerful sorceress from the popular "World of Warcraft" gaming series.
"Everybody at the wedding is going to be in costume and I will be in a costume to officiate the wedding," the 63-year-old explained.
Curtis though didn’t exactly sound like a dedicated follower of the game. "It's a game. I don't know. She's an admiral." As she probably didn't need to confirm, it was Ruby and her fiancée Cynthia’s idea.
But once Curtis agreed, it was up to her to cobble together the costume, eventually tracking down a seamstress online who could sew up the plan.
Of course, as many ingenious wedding plans go, there was a snag. A major snag.
"About a month ago, two to three weeks ago,” Curtis added, “I got an email from [the seamstress] that said, 'There may be a delay in sending the costume.’”
Indeed! The costume was coming from Russia, which is currently at war with Ukraine.
"I'm hoping she'll get it to me,” Curtis meekly said to Kimmel. “I just don't know if the... you know, there's a little bit of a supply chain issue going on, and things are sort of held up now."
While getting used to the idea of playing a video game character at the wedding, Curtis previously disclosed how proud she was of Ruby's decision to come out as trans to her and husband Christopher Guest, which happened about a year and a half ago.
"It's speaking a new language," she told People. "It's learning new terminology and words. I am new at it. I am not someone who is pretending to know much about it. And I'm going to blow it. I'm going to make mistakes. I would like to try to avoid making big mistakes."
For now, Curtis is just hoping no more wedding plan snafus rear their head, and is excited about the at-home ceremony. "We're gonna have a beautiful picnic in the backyard. I'm really excited," she said of the May nuptials. "Both of my children will have been married in my backyard, which brings me to tears."
Curtis was visiting Kimmel to promote her latest film, the unusual sci-fi comedy, “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” where she plays a frumpy, barely recognizable IRS inspector. The film is in theaters now.
