Is Julia Stiles Transgender, Where Is She Now?

Born on the 28th of March 1981, Julia Stiles is an American actress raised in New York by her parents: Judith Newcomb Stiles (a potter) and John O’Hara, a businessman. She is the oldest child of her parents’ three children. Julia has a sister called Jane and a brother named after their father, his name is Jonny. The actress is of English, Irish, and Italian descent. She has always had a flair for acting from a tender age and it drove her into making her acting debut at the age 11, in the television series titled Ghostwriter. She also performed with New York’s LaMaMa Theatre Company.

Stiles is a graduate of Columbia University with a degree in English Literature, which she obtained in 2005. In 2010, she received an honorary award from her alma mater. It was in recognition of her professional acting achievements.

Her first major film role came when she was hired to play Young Nana’s Friend in 1996’s I Love You, I Love You Not. Thereafter, she pulled off her first lead role in the 1998 thriller film, Wicked. Julia is also admired for her theatrical roles and considering her career accomplishments, it is only normal that a lot of people are curious about her private life. Among other things, many wonder if the actress is a transgender. We have trashed that out below.

Why People Think Julia Stiles Is Transgender

In the early 2000s and late ’90s, Stiles had a bright Hollywood future and everyone believed she was on her way to the top. But over the last decade and a half, her star in Hollywood might have dimmed a little. However, one thing refusing to dim in her life are the rumors surrounding her personal life; one of such rumors are questions about her sexuality. These rumors reached their peak in 2016 when it was strongly suggested that Julia Stiles is a transgender.

Even though a good number of people treated the reports suggesting that the actress is transgender as mere rumors, it was easy for a lot of her fans to indulge the stories; as one cannot deny the fact that the actress has certain male features.

For instance, Stiles has a husky voice which is lower than that of your everyday Hollywood actress. In addition to that, Julia is known for her angular face which she often straightens out with makeup. In all, her physique is quite masculine, leading to the uncertainties about her sexuality.

What Has She Said About The Issue?

Sometime in 2011, the actress was pictured with a higher cheekbone and rounded chin on a red carpet. As such, it was suggested in various quarters that she had undergone more surgery to achieve a more feminine look.

On several occasions, Julia Stiles has commented on the issue, insisting that the speculations are baseless. According to her, she has never gone under the knife to make herself more appealing as an entertainer. Even, she wondered why a Hollywood star cannot have a puffy face without being called a transgender.

Anyway, all the reports suggesting she is transgender are baseless and haven’t been substantiated in any meaningful way. In view of that and her marital status, it is safe to conclude that the actress isn’t transgender.

Who Is She Married To?

The American actress, on the 3rd of January 2016, announced her engagement to Preston J. Cook whom she worked with on Blackway. The couple got married during the Labor Day weekend in September 2017 and prior to that, they announced that they were expecting their first child; that was in June of the same year.

The couple welcomed their son Strummer Newcomb on the 20th of October 2017. If anything, her marriage to Preston has gone a long way to shut-down the rumors about her being a transgender.

What Has Julia Stiles Been Doing?

Julia had been preoccupied with motherhood. She took a break from acting, obviously to focus on her baby Strummer Newcomb. Nonetheless, she was spotted in public in March 2018 at a Yoga Class in Manhattan. As such, people began to wonder if it’s a temporary break from acting or a permanent one.

Anyway, the former proved to be the case as she returned to playing Georgina Clios in Riviera and most recently, featured as Elizabeth in Hustlers, a 2019 crime drama film directed by Lorene Scafaria.
