The Daily Grind Video

Laverne Cox and Mad Men actress Christina Hendricks stopped by The Late Late Show with James Corden last night to discuss both their careers and transgender visibility.

Corden segued into conversation regarding Caitlyn Jenner by mentioning that Cox was acknowledged in Jenner’s ESPY Awards speech while accepting the Arthur Ashe Courage Award.

Cox said the following:

“What I think is so beautiful about this, my visibility and Caitlyn’s visibility, is that diverse representations of trans people in the media I think are so important. When I think about being in my twenties as a black transgender woman who was working class and struggling to make it in New York, it’s completely different than Caitlyn’s very public experience…There’s no way she could’ve transitioned privately, so I think she’s doing it eloquently and beautifully publicly.”

Hendricks chimed in to support trans visibility, saying, “It’s something people do all the time now and I’m happy when they can feel comfortable and beautiful in their own skin…and I just live and let live.”
