Patricia Arquette's Advice For Bruce Jenner's Reported Transition

Patricia Arquette has voiced her support for Bruce Jenner, if he is indeed going through a transition.

"It's time for us all to stand up and support her in this transition if this is what she wants to do and it's very powerful to live your life in your truth and it's very difficult in this world to do that," the "Boyhood" actress told Access Hollywood on Saturday night at the Writers Guild Awards in Los Angeles. "It doesn't hurt anybody, so I don't know why anyone would be offended or write about it offensively or as if it's comedic or anything else. It's a very difficult decision to come to because the world doesn't support it, so I'm here to say I do support it and I think we should all be able to be who we really are."

Patricia's sister, Alexis Arquette, is a transgender female, so she knows firsthand the struggles a transgender person can face.

The Oscar nominee and Golden Globe winner offered words of wisdom to society about acceptance of the transgender community.

"My advice is for everybody else to let's not live on the dark side of history right now. This is an important moment," she told Access. "A lot of kids commit suicide over these issues [and] are bullied. I don't think there's been one murder of a transgender person that's ever been solved.
