The Question Club
Would it bother you to watch a performer play a role where the character is the opposite sex? I don't mean like Shakespeare in Love or the movie Glenn Close was just in, I mean a movie like "The Year of Living Dangerously". Linda Hunt played a man. Not a woman posing as a man, just a man. The auditions for the role was open to men, but for some reason, they gave it to Linda Hunt. |
I could probably forget who the actor is and just enjoy the movie if the actor wasn't well known. But if the actor was famous, I probably couldn't get past it. Johnny Depp once told "Inside the Actor's Studio" he thought it would be interesting to play a woman, but the entire time, I'd be thinking, "Holy shit, that's Johnny Depp in a dress."
