Eddie Izzard has opened up on the moment her pronouns ‘changed’ to ‘she/her’, explaining that while it wasn’t deliberate on her part, she regards it as ‘a ‘great honour’.In December 2020, the actor and comedian appeared on the Sky Arts programme Portrait Artist of the Year to have her portrait painted by a group of artists.During the episode, she requested that she be referred to by the pronouns ‘she/her’ after being asked for her preference, sparking high praise from viewers, as she said at the time: ‘This is the first programme I’ve asked if I can be she and her, a little transition period.’In a new interview on the My Seven Wonders with Clive Anderson podcast, Eddie explained that she identifies as ‘gender fluid’, and is ‘now based as a trans woman’.Speaking about the aftermath of her Portrait Artist of the Year episode airing, the Ocean’s Twelve star said: ‘My pronouns… I didn’t change my pronouns.

I was thinking of changing them.’The 60-year-old recollected how she was asked what pronouns she would prefer during filming as casually as if she’d been asked for her coffee order.‘I went on a programme called Portrait Artist of the Year, Sky Arts, very nice, go on there,’ she said.‘Some young artists painting me, they ask me, like a coffee thing, they said, she/her or he/him?

I was wearing a dress and I’m based as a trans woman now, so she/her, I’ll have a latte – it was that kind of lack of stress.’Eddie said that after the episode aired a year and a half ago, ‘in two days in America and Britain where I’m best known, all my pronouns were changed’.‘Which is fantastic, a great honour.
