LIVERPOOL, England (UPI) -- Catherine Zeta-Jones will star in a Hollywood version of the life of April Ashley, Britain`s first transsexual.

George Jamieson was born in Liverpool, joined the Navy at age 14 and was locked up in a high security mental hospital after attempting suicide at age 16, the Liverpool Daily Post reported Thursday.

He eventually became part of a Paris cabaret show and underwent a sex change operation in Casablanca. Since then, April, now 70, has become a high society celebrity, the newspaper said.

She became a top Vogue model, was friendly with John Lennon and reportedly had affairs with actor Omar Sharif and late INXS singer Michael Hutchence.

She's too hot for that, give me a break. Plus, Felicity Huffman will hit Oscar gold for a transsexual, so CZJ has been beaten to the punch.

Maybe she can play a lady garbagewoman fighting for custody of her retarded and disfigured children whose drug addict and abusive father wants to sell them into white slavery. Oh, and she's terminally ill, too, but she has hope. Isn't that all anyone needs?

:haha: Great as usual, Helen.

But maybe we could fit in Brad Pitt who desperately seek a gay role to get him new fame after he was outed as a wife-leaving, adopt-a-parent, and pregnancy-machine? Who says that you can't be gay when abusing or selling your children? Oscar material for sure!

Brad Pitt can play her husband. Let's see, drug addict, and really thin (losing weight for a role is a plus). Maybe he's bisexual and can do a man-on-man love scene. Maybe it's society's rejection of his sexuality that has made him so mean!!! Oscar gold!! Hey, if uglying up works for woman, why not for a man? And, let's not forget, when Liz's reputation was at its worst for stealing Eddie Fisher from Debbie Reynolds in real life, she did win Oscar gold for playing a prostitute.

I think Brad Pitt and CZJ so owe us for this career advice!

She'd also need to be obese and living in a war zone. So I suggest they set it in her hometown of Swansea :p ;)

Yes, and maybe she has like big scar on her face from when she rescued an orphan baby from the trash and thugs wanted it, but she took a knife to the face to save the baby, who later died because she was too poor to take care of it (mean bosses wouldn't give her a raise unless she put out).
