Warren Beatty had never publicly addressed his child Stephen‘s gender, until now.

“He’s a revolutionary, a genius, and my hero, as are all my children,” the Rules Don’t Apply actor, 79, proudly told Vanity Fair recently about the 24-year-old trans activist. The eldest of four siblings, Stephen was assigned female at birth and named Kathlyn Elizabeth by his father and mother Annette Bening.

Stephen started transitioning at age 14, he said in a 2012 video for WeHappyTrans, crediting his friends and peers for being supportive over the years. In a December 2014 tweet, Stephen called himself a “survivor” of conversion therapy and transphobic abuse.

It's always nice to hear about a parent come around to accepting his or her child's true gender identity.
