Eddie Izzard: 'I'm A Cross-Dressing Superhero'

7/7/2010 8:23am EDT
Eddie Izzard
Funnyman Eddie Izzard describes his transvestite tendencies as a "superhero thing," insisting he cross-dresses to fight prejudice.

The British comic was famous for dressing in feminine guise while performing his stand-up routines in the U.K. before finding international fame in the TV series The Riches and 2008 thriller Valkyrie. And Izzard claims he uses his transvestism to fight intolerance, likening himself to a disguised comic book hero.

He tells the New York Post, "I finished my last tour in Canada in girlie mode, and I'm just back in boy mode now. I consider it a superhero thing. ...

'Valkyrie' Takes An Intriguing Look At Historical Event

12/19/2008 12:20am EST
Tom Cruise must be the only actor on the planet who can get away with playing any character, at any time, with an American accent. He never really disappears in his roles, not like Daniel Day-Lewis or Jamie Foxx with his portrayal of Ray Charles in "Ray"-no matter what he does, you can't help but looking at the screen and simply thinking to yourself, that's Tom Cruise. If that's the worst thing that can be said about a film, it probably stands a fighting chance.

As it turns out, Cruise's refusal to be anyone other than himself proves to be but a slight annoyance in an otherwise terrif...

Stubborn General or Muslim, Harry Lennix

Lights, Camera, Scientology?

Tom Cruise
With a ban in Germany on the horizon, scientology has come under severe media scrutiny and public debate in recent years. Ever since Tom Cruise defamed Brooke Shields during post-partum-depression-gate '07, the quasi-religion has been a heated topic. It's been called an oppressive cult. A money-guzzler. A fraud. And it has something to do with an ancient alien named Xenu. So why do so many public faces flock to the Scientology church's doors?

John Travolta, Jenna Elfman, Katie Holmes, Kirstie Alley, Jason Lee and Isaac Hayes are all reported Scientologists. For most of them, their beli...
