Actors Who Portrayed the Opposite Gender


Jared Leto, 'Dallas Buyers Club'

In Dallas Buyers Club, Jared Leto, who is known for his extreme dedication to "method acting," portrayed a drug-addicted, HIV-positive trans woman. He went on to reveal that he lost 30 pounds, waxed his entire body, shaved his eyebrows, and recalled his experience with his Los Angeles roommate who died of AIDS in 1991. "It’s kind of hard to let go because you make an enormous commitment. Any time you commit like that, at least for me, it’s hard to stop. It takes a little while sometimes," he recalled his weight loss journey in an interview with Collider, adding, "I remember eating again can start to be a little like you think you’re going to eat a big meal, but you can’t, because you take half a bite and you’re full."
