And when asked about how she approaches playing gay for the camera she answers, “I don’t think I approach gay characters any differently than I approach straight characters.
To me, it’s like, this is who you’re attracted to, this is what you’ll wear, and this is what you’ll do in the movie.”She also played the childhood version of Rosie O’Donnell in the feel-good coming of age movie Now and Then.

Both actresses made dramatic physical transformations for the role of these lovers and Ricci gets a little bummed when she’s not recognized for that, although she knew that it was Theron’s passion project going in.
She also played lesbian activist Romaine Patterson in The Laramie Project, a film she requested to be a part of specifically because it was about homophobia and injustice.
