Gender Benders: Actors Who Have Cross-Dressed in Movies

Who can forget Robin Williams's Scottish-sounding alter ego in Mrs. Doubtfire? And 1982's Tootsie, starring Dustin Hoffman, garnered 10 Academy Award nominations. Not to mention actresses like Gwyneth Paltrow, Hilary Swank, and Amanda Bynes who have dressed up as dudes for a role. See stars who have donned drag for film now.
