It was just announced that Gwyneth Paltrow will be replacing Charlize Theron in The Danish Girl. The film is about the first post-operative transsexual.
Nicole Kidman will be portraying Einar Wegener, husband of artist Greta Wegener. The story goes that Einar stood in for a female model was set to paint. The portrait was such a success that Greta encouraged her husband to continue posing as a woman and in 1931, he shocked the world by undergoing a sex change operation.
If every man who had a sex change operation came out looking like Nicole Kidman, there would be a lot more yoni walking around!
It seems like this a much deeper film than either of them has ever attempted. We're excited to see how it works out.
