A studio exec wanted Julia Roberts to play Harriet Tubman, screenwriter claims

quote [ Howard said the bewildering comments came during a meeting in 1994 during the film's early development. ?This is a great script," Howard says a studio president told him. "Let?s get Julia Roberts to play Harriet Tubman.? When Howard pointed out that Julia Roberts was black, the exec responded: ?That was so long ago. No one will know that.? ]

It's probably how Jesus feels every time he sees the blue-eyed, blonde, aryan rendition of himself.

But as the culture has evolved, the film has proved to be very much of its time, with a contradictory legacy that trans viewers have grappled with. ]

Full article in extended. I wasn't aware being a trans man was a possibility until I was 23, long after I was aware of trans women.
