Jared Leto dressed as a woman during ‘Dallas Buyers Club’ shoot

jared-leto-september-2013-story-top Determined to give his best performance as an HIV-positive transgender woman in the Dallas Buyers Club, Jared Leto turned up to work dressed as a female. This made his director Jean-Marc Vallee uncomfortable because he didn’t know what to call him.

He tells Rolling Stone, “He got off the plane in a dress and high heels and a wig. The first week was awkward, because I didn’t know what to call him. Her? Jared? (character name) Rayon? But I got into it. He was a she, and she was nice. At the end of the shoot, I gave her a female gift – a woman’s T-shirt with Marc Bolan on it.”

    I have never understood this transgender thing. I would also feel awkward if I had to deal with one of them. A normal man cannot understand how to call a transgender “he” or “she”. But I bet when he dresses like a woman he expects to be treated as woman. So, I bet the female present was just right. Men lose dignity and honor to my mind when they start doing such awkward things. At least this makes them happy.
