Androgyny is when a person has both feminine and masculine qualities in appearance. Many androgynous people think they are somewhere in between a man and a woman. Celebrities who have this appearance are similar to chameleons in that they can easily become a character of the opposite sex or transform into a fantasy character without using a lot of makeup. Plus, modern trends are great for androgynous people because unisex is becoming more and more popular.
There are more and more famous androgynous people and filmmakers who are experimenting with these different characters. We have compiled a list of androgynous people who have won the hearts of fans not only with their talent but also with their rare attractiveness.
1. Tilda Swinton.
Tilda Swinton is a master of transformation. Her pale skin is perfect for playing vampires, her unusual face can depict the face of a wizard, and her androgyny can help her transform into a man on the outside. Directors trust Swinton with the most complex characters that not every actress would agree to portray. And her fans always expect the unexpected from her.
2. Bill Kaulitz.
Tokio Hotel frontman Bill Kaulitz became famous in the early 2000s. The image of Kaulitz was so controversial that many considered him a girl. With hair that looked like a skunk's tail along with his bright eyes and cute face, he became quite popular. But even today, he surprises people with his looks thanks to his clothes and makeup. The musician also has a twin brother.
3. Cillian Murphy.
Critics say Cillian Murphy is a chameleon. And there is a good reason for this: he can easily turn into a transgender person or an attractive maniac terrorist. With bright eyes that any girl would love to have, along with his prominent cheekbones and full lips, he has always been a great choice for any of the movie roles he has had in the past.
4. Glenn Close.
Children who grew up in the 90s remember Cruella De Ville. It was this role that made this actress very popular. In another film, she portrayed a girl who was pretending to be a man. Some people think that Close looks a lot like the late actor Robin Williams. We agree that this is close to the truth.
5. David Bowie.
Extravagant David Bowie loved to wear androgynous looks with bright makeup, women's dresses, and high heels. This is why Bowie was like no one else and became a legend in the world of music. And in 2013, he shot a video for his song "The Stars (Are Out Tonight)" with hermaphrodite models and actress Tilda Swinton.
6. Timothy Chalamet.
Young and attractive Timothy Chalamet became famous after playing a teenager who fell in love with a man. His aristocratic, feminine face, his amazing acting talent, and charisma have made him a rising star in Hollywood.
7. Lady Gaga.
Lady Gaga has said many times in her interviews that she does not think she is a man or a woman. She has a masculine stage image - the strong Italian Joe Calderone. The singer said that David Bowie had a huge impact on her art, which is why she wears his portrait on her body.
8. Charlotte Gainsbourg.
The unusual and even sharp facial features of Charlotte Gensburg always create an unusual image in the cinema. This is probably the reason why director Lars von Trier loves this actress so much. She likes to wear men's clothes, doesn't use a lot of makeup, and sometimes doesn't even brush her hair.
9. Jared Leto.
Jared Leto is a talented actor and musician. He has long hair, blue eyes, and a sweet yet feminine face. These features allow him to play completely different characters, such as the one he played at the Dallas Buyers Club, for example. In his daily life, he does not hide his femininity: he often uses nail polish, mascara, and much more. He could also become the real Dorian Gray because he is 48 years old, but he looks like he is 25 years old.
10. Lenny Kravitz's daughter, Zoe Kravitz, has an unusual appearance, just like her father. She has a hairstyle that makes her look like a pretty teenager. But that wasn't a problem when she needed to portray a very sensitive character in Big Little Lies and become the face of Black Opium for YSL.
11. Eddie Redmayne.
These feminine facial features allowed Eddie Redmayne to portray a believable transformation of a man who decided to change his gender.
12. LP (Laura Pergolizzi).
Laura Pergolizzi is a singer known as LP. She became famous after the release of the song "Lost on You", which became an instant hit and received 300 million views. Few people were able to guess who was singing and could not understand whether it was a guy or a girl. Even after the video, it was still not very clear. A low voice, harsh facial features, a boy-like body, curly hair, and menswear make LP one of the most famous androgynous celebrities around.
