Actors can do a lot to get a role: completely change their image, shave their heads, slim down, gain weight, and even change their gender.

Bright Side made a list of 5 movies where actors skilfully portrayed people of a different gender.

Angelina Jolie

Salt, 2010

Jolie played the role of CIA officer Evelyn Salt, suspected of working for Russian intelligence. According to the plot, the female officer has to transform into a man. Angelina Jolie had to spend several hours in the dressing room to achieve such a plausible transformation.

Gael García Bernal

La mala educación, 2004

In this dramatic film by a classic of Spanish cinema, Pedro Almodóvar, Gael García Bernal plays a transvestite. Work on the female image became a new experience in Bernal’s career.

Eddie Redmayne

The Danish Girl, 2015

The drama takes place in the 1920s and tells the story of the artist Einar Wegener, who posed for his wife as a woman. Eventually, Einar realizes he no longer wants to be a man and decides to undergo the world’s first sex-change operation. Eddie Redmayne was great in both roles, and the movie about the world’s first transgender turned out to be strong, philosophical, and lyrical.

Cillian Murphy

Breakfast on Pluto, 2005

Breakfast on Pluto is one of the most iconic and complex works in the career of Cillian Murphy. The actor’s character goes from an androgynous teenager to a glamorous blonde.
