Earlier this week, we heard Scarlett Johansson would be playing a woman who dresses like a man in a movie called “Rub & Tug”.
Well, now she’s receiving backlash, because people think it should’ve been given to a TRANSGENDER man.
The real-life character she’s playing was born Jean Marie Gill . . . but she dressed like a man and was commonly known as Dante ‘Tex’ Gill.
His obituary reported he “[insisted] that he was a man.” And that he “may have even undergone the initial stages of a sex change [to] appear masculine.”
Scarlett’s publicist pointed out she’s not the first non-trans actor to play one . . . “Tell them that they can be directed to Jeffrey Tambor, Jared Leto, and Felicity Huffman’s reps for comment.”
