New Delhi, Dec 29 (ANI): Eddie Redmayne, who will be soon seen in the role of a transgender in ‘The Danish Girl,’ is all praises for Caitlyn Jenner for using her status to “highlight” the problems faced by transgender people.
The 33-year-old ‘Theory of Everything’ actor, who spoke about how the discussion around the identity of transgender men and women should continue, said in an interview given to an international magazine that the ‘I Am Cait’ star has been doing a “great” thing.
The Academy Award winner further said the 66-year-old reality star, whose transition is a very unique and specific one, has used her status to highlight some of the serious problems that transgender men and women have to go through, adding that her show has made everyone “educate” themselves on things like terminology.
