 Eddie Redmayne Says Playing a Transgender Role Was a Mistake For Him

When this story was trending earlier this week you should have seen the straight people lose their minds.  “It’s acting, it’s only acting,” was the big reaction I kept seeing. And then there are always those geniuses who believe that if straights can’t play gayface then gay actors can’t play straight. They fail to realize that gay people (and all LGBTQ people) are part of a marginalized group, and also that all gay people WERE straight at one time or another. 

The bottom line is that they do not want to give up their straight privilege. That privilege is steeped so deeply into mainstream culture they will do anything to hold on to it. And it’s not just with LGBTQ people. They will praise a salve trader like Thomas Jefferson and make excuses for the fact that he actually sold human beings. The straight white privilege rules their lives and most of them don’t even know it. 

With that said, Eddie Redmayne “gets” it. He recently came out with a story where he said he playing a transgender character was a mistake. 

The actor “wouldn’t take it on now,” he told The Times in an interview published Sunday. “I made that film with the best intentions, but I think it was a mistake.”

Here’s more. In spite of the fact that he did such a wonderful job playing a trans character, at least he understands now. Just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should be doing it.
