I guess if you want to make audiences feel more comfortable watching a movie about a transsexual and their sexual partner, you might as well cast it with those who are friendly on the eyes. So is the case for The Danish Girl, which just landed Gwyneth Paltrow.

Gwyneth Paltrow for The Danish Girl

Paltrow has been cast to star opposite Nicole Kidman in The Danish Girl. Based on the David Ebershoff novel and directed by Thomas Alfredson off a script by Lucinda Coxon, The Danish Girl revolves around a man's (Einar Wegener) transformation after his wife Greta, a portrait painter, asks him to stand in for an absent female model.

Einar begins a metamorphosis into Lili after he slips on a dress, stockings and woman's shoes. Kidman had already been attached to play Einar, and Paltrow will play Greta, who stood by her partner through the sex-change operation, finally letting go when she realized the man she married no longer exists.

Doesn't sound like the best turnout, but watching Paltrow and Kidman kiss a few times should make it all worth it.
