Dude Looks Like a Lady: The Best and Worst Attempts at Men Playing Women in Movies

Nathan Lane in The Birdcage

I love how adamant Nathan Lane’s character of Albert is about the fact that he’s a woman. He’s definitely dramatic enough to pass as a woman with his high shrill shrieks, his up and down emotions and the fact that he does everything with his pinky up. Add that to the fact the he was the queen bee drag star, Starina, at The Birdcage. But when he’s asked to play it straight for the sake of his lover’s son, he can’t and goes off the script by showing up as his mother instead. Crazy wig, high pitched voice and all. Lane can do no wrong to me, especially in this hilarious film, so I have to say that it was a good showing on his part!
