Julia Stiles, born on 28 March 1981, is an American actress who was born and grew up in New York. Her parents are Judith Newcomb Stiles, a potter, and John O’Hara, a businessman.
Julia comes from a family of three children, of which she is the oldest. She has a sister named Jane and also a brother named after her father Jonny. The actress is of English, Irish and Italian descent. She has always had a flair for acting, and this flair drove her to make her acting debut at the age of only 11 in the television series Ghostwriter, in which she starred in six episodes. She also appeared with New York’s LaMaMa Theatre Company.
Julia Stiles is a Columbia University graduate with a degree in English Literature, which she received in 2005. In 2010 she received an honorary award from her alma mater. It was awarded in recognition of her professional acting achievements.
She received her first major film role besides her debut at the age of 11 in 1996 when she was given a role in the film I Love You, I Love You Not. She played her first leading role in the thriller suspense film Wicked in 1998. Apart from her film career, Julia Stiles also had a promising stage career. Her first stage role was made possible by John Moran, who works as a writer and composer with the group Ridge Theatre in Manhattan. The long-awaited stage debut came in the play Oleanna at the Garrick Theatre.
Is Julia Stiles Transgender?
In the early 2000s and late 90s, Stiles had a bright future in Hollywood, and everyone thought she was on her way to the top, but in the last decade and a half her Hollywood star may have weakened a bit. But one thing that refuses to soften in her life are the rumors about her private life, and one of those rumors is questions about her sexuality. These rumors reached their peak in 2016 when it was emphatically stated that Julia Stiles was a transsexual.
Although it is possible that such rumors have arisen out of defiance about the beautiful blonde actress, you cannot deny that she has certain masculine traits, including her rather hoarse voice, which is deeper than that of an everyday Hollywood actress.
Her angular face, which can be erected with make-up but looks much worse without make-up, and her really bizarre looking muscular body, which resembles the physique of a professional footballer, are characteristics that lead to uncertainties about her sexual orientation.
To the rumors that already exist, it should be added that in 2011 she was spotted on the red carpet with a higher cheekbone and a rounded chin, which led writers to suspect that she had undergone more surgery to achieve a more feminine appearance. She has been quite open about such rumors, insisting that she did not undergo surgery to make her a more attractive Hollywood star, and also insisting that a Hollywood star can have a swollen face without being labeled as transsexual.
In her defense: Online articles describing her as a transsexual are either unfounded or inconclusive, as they only cite her career highs and lows as the basis for the argument. We have therefore come to the conclusion that it is very likely that the actress is not transsexual.
Is She Married, Who’s Her Husband?
On January 3, 2016, the American actress announced her engagement to her camera assistant Preston J. Cook, with whom she worked at Blackway.
The couple were married on the weekend of Labour Day in September 2017 and announced that they were expecting their first child in June of that year. The couple welcomed their son, Strummer Newcomb, who was born on October 20, 2017.
Their marriage to Preston has helped to dispel rumors about their transsexuality.
Where Is She Now?
At the moment Julia is dealing with the topic of motherhood. She has taken a break from acting, obviously to concentrate on her baby Strummer Newcomb. She was spotted in public at a yoga class in Manhattan in March 2018.
Hardly anyone can say whether this is a temporary break from the acting profession or a permanent break. We just have to wait and see how things develop for them.
Julia’s Height, How Tall Is She?
Your speculations about the actress’s height should end here: Julia Stiles is 5’5″ tall and weighs 58 pounds.
