Gwyneth Paltrow to Play Nicole Kidman's Wife


No, it's not a typo. Your Friday trade-news dump is one of the more exotic in recent memory, as Gwyneth Paltrow will join Nicole Kidman in The Danish Girl, featuring Kidman as the first post-operative transsexual. Paltrow will play his/her wife, a painter whose request for her husband to fill in for an absent female model -- stockings, frocks and all -- resulted in a popular series of portraits that came to permute his sexual identity. Drama ensues -- as will about 100 glossy cover stories and an inevitable Goop blogging hiatus while Paltrow is shooting. Enjoy it. [BF Deal Memo]
