Catherine Zeta Jones is rumoured to be the next high profile star to become trans gendered following the critically acclaimed film, Transamerica.

Desperate Housewives star Felicity Huffman, who won a Golden Globe for Transamerica, has shown that being a woman playing a man who self defines as a woman can get you noticed.

According to the New York Post, Catherine Zeta Jones is being lined up to play a 1960s sex-change cabaret artist in an upcoming movie.

The biopic of real-life aristocratic transsexual April Ashley will look at how her marriage to Baron Rowallan was annulled in a landmark court case.

Hubby Michael Douglas, meanwhile, once joked that he thought Catherine was a “man in drag” when they first met because they didn’t kiss until they’d been dating for nine months
