Well, well, well… I guess we must have rubbed off on her. I’ve been reading here and there that Nicole Kidman, who has also moved to my hometown of Nashville, will play famous transsexual Lili Elbe. Lili is known as one of the first people to undergo genital reassignment surgery, and there is some talk that she may have had intersex characteristics. I suppose I’ll have to read the book The Danish Girl, but from the synopsis I’ve read it seems that photographer Gerda Wegener asked her then-husband to stand in for a female model by wearing “stockings and heels” and he was hooked. I must admit, the trifecta of late transition, married and “stockings + heels” leaves some questions in my mind, but Nicole’s interpretation of the idea should be interesting to watch, whatever really may have happened.
In any case, it should be interesting.
