Eddie Izzard Struts Out of LAX in a Short Skirt & Stiletto Boots

Eddie Izzard makes an exit out of LAX Airport on Thursday afternoon (July 18) in Los Angeles.

The 57-year-old actor and comedian arrived into town on a flight from France. Eddie was seen strutting out of the airport in a leather jacket, a black top and skirt, and black stiletto boots.

Eddie will likely be at Comic-Con this weekend to promote the new Netflix series The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.

A couple years ago, Eddie opened up about coming out as transgender and how that affects getting roles in Hollywood.

“I am essentially transgender. I have boy mode and girl mode. I do feel I have boy genetics and girl genetics. I have played one transgender character. I will play hopefully more transgender roles in the future, but there are a lot of boy genetics in me so I am happy to play boy roles. It would be great if more transgender actors can play more transgender characters,” Eddie told THR.

'Rock Dog' Cast List - Meet the Movie's Star-Studded Voices!

The new animated movie Rock Dog is now in theaters and the film features a star-studded list of actors providing their voices!

While the film is only expected to bring in around $5 million for its opening weekend, box office experts expect the movie to have a long life with Blu-ray and DVD sales in the future.

Here is the synopsis: “For the Tibetan Mastiffs living on Snow Mountain, a dog’s life has a simple riff: Guard a peaceful village of wool-making sheep from the thuggish wolf Linnux (Lewis Black) and his rabid pack. To avoid distractions, Mastiff leader Khampa (J.K. Simmons) forbids all music from the mountain. But when Khampa’s son Bodi (Luke Wilson) discovers a radio dropped by a passing airplane, it takes just a few guitar licks for his fate to be sealed: Bodi wants to be a rock ‘n’ roll star. Yet that means defying his father’s wishes, heading to the city, and locating the legendary – and reclusive – musician Angus Scattergood (Eddie Izzard), who needs to write a new song and fast. If Bodi can put a band together, help Angus with his song, and defeat the wolves’ plot to take Snow Mountain, his life will be in tune. Bodi will become what he’s always dreamed of being: More than a dog… more than a Rock God… he’ll be a ROCK DOG!”
