While Paris didn’t know for certain how Gill, who died in 2003, would react to Johansson playing him, Paris did confirm that Gill saw himself as a man.‘He totally identified as a man from the time my cousins and I first knew him,’ Paris recalled. ‘He was always overtly masculine. He hated to be called “she,” and that’s what the police always did, and the papers. It annoyed and upset him.’‘I think it’s slightly more likely he would have liked to be played by a man because he identified as a man,’ Paris told TheWrap. ‘I’m sure he would have liked to have been played by a transgender man, but in his day that was very rare.’However, Paris believes that Gill would have found all this controversy amusing.‘He would laugh if he were here watching any of this,’ he said.Got a news tip?
