Cook Fascinated By Thailand's Transvestites

JOSIE AND THE PUSSYCATS star RACHAEL LEIGH COOK has developed a fascination with Thailand's transvestites - because they're far more convincing than their American counterparts.

The stunning actress recently got the opportunity to attend the nation's BANGKOK FILM FESTIVAL and was stunned at just how realistic the cross-dressers were.

She says, "The drag shows there are amazing. These guys are beautiful - they're beautiful women. They're just absolutely gorgeous.

"They sort of dance, but not quite, and they sort of sing, but not at all. They lip-sync perfectly.

"(American transvestites) have too much muscle on them, so it sort of gives them away, but not there - nothing."
