Alexis' fans pointed out that she has over 70 film credits to her name, including The Wedding Singer, Pulp Fiction, Of Mice and Men, and Last Exit to Brooklyn. Patricia told Vanity Fair that her sister wasn't only a respected actor, she was an important pillar of the trans community.
The Boyhood star explained that Alexis had “a great career as a male, and came out as a trans woman and lived her life in her truth... Her career was cut short, not by her passing, but by her decision to live her truth and her life as a transgender woman. Despite the fact that there are few parts for trans actors, she refused to play roles that were demeaning or stereotypical. She was a vanguard in the fight for understanding and acceptance for all trans people.”
Alexis wasn't the only star missing from the segment. Viewers noticed that Garry Shandling, Robert Vaughn, and more were also absent from the list.
