Mark Ruffalo Responds to Matt Bomer Casting Criticism as Transgender Sex Worker in 'Anything'

Mark Ruffalo has taken to Twitter to respond to criticism of the casting of Matt Bomer as a transgender sex worker in the new movie Anything.

Mark is executive producing the movie, which has already been filmed. Many have criticized the movie, saying a transgender woman should portray the character, rather than a cisgender actor.

“To the Trans community. I hear you. It’s wrenching to you see you in this pain. I am glad we are having this conversation. It’s time,” Mark wrote. “In all honesty I suggested Matt for the role after the profound experience I had with him while making ‘The Normal Heart.’”

One Twitter user replied, “Especially given how he has handled interactions with actual trans women, I would suggest a recast. now,” to which Mark wrote back, “The movie is already shot and Matt poured his heart and soul into this part. Please have a little compassion. We are all learning.”

    come on people… the battle in my opinion for the Trans community is for a trans actor or actress to get a role for male or female and not considered “trans” just male or female.
