Arquette explained that the death of her two parents helped her come to terms with the transition, noting that it was about loving the ones around you, while you still can.
“We all come into this life in a different package — a baby package," she said. "We get older, we become an old person package. If you’re male or female at the end, I didn’t care. I said, ‘I don’t care what package you’re comfortable in. I love and accept you. I’m so glad you’re here on earth. I want to be with you, spend time with you.’”
