12-2007: Inland Empire


What a difference a year makes! A little less than 12 months ago Rebecca Romijn was single, unemployed, and undisputedly 100 percent female. Now, as 2007 draws to a close, she is happily married, working steadily (on one of TVs biggest hits, no less), and, brace yourself, the unlikely poster child for the international transgender community. All things considered, the winsome 35-year-old model-turned-actress says she is having the time of her life.

Describing the episode she's working on, in which her character, a glam transgender woman named Alexis, finally gets some sugar from a hot Brazilian named Rodrigo, she grows giddy, and I think I know why.
