In the touching moment, the Boyhood star explains how we should love one another no matter the circumstance and she also took a moment to shame the media for the mostly negative reaction to Bruce's news.

Arquette speaks from personal experience — her younger sister, Alexis, transitioned into a woman 20 years ago. Alexis' story was chronicled in the 2007 film, Alexis Arquette: She's My Brother.

The actress revealed:

"I feel like Alexis, my sister, has taught me so much about love and acceptance. It's a very difficult thing to be transgender, especially 20 years ago when Alexis started…You have to be so brave to live this truth of who you are."

Wow, we can't imagine the courage it must have took to come out as transgender two decades ago! Bravo, Alexis!
