The Beautiful People of 2005

SEX? She'll have the same

Despite the androgynous beauty that has helped win her numerous gender-confused roles, sharp-haired looker Katherine Moennig cries boredom about sexual-identity issues. That's a little weird, considering her acclaimed turn as Shane McCutcheon, a fascinating and voracious woman-eater on Showtime's lesbian drama series The L Word. And that's not all, either: Moennig's first job was on the WB series Young Americans, where she played Jacqueline "Jake" Pratt, a girl who enrols in an all-boys boarding school. Even earlier, the Philadelphia girl had auditioned for Boys Don't Cry but lost the Brandon Teena part to Hilary Swank. What's up? "It's not planned," the 27-year-old explains. "It's just that I want to do challenging roles that can change people's perceptions. There's no point in being an actor if you're not trying to learn or grow."

While The L Word's shooting schedule is intense -- Moennig spends most of the year filming in Vancouver -- she considers taking on other projects essential to her education (among them is the upcoming Art School Confidential by director Terry Zwigoff and writer Daniel Clowes). Show business is in her blood: Moennig is the niece of Blythe Danner and cousin of Gwyneth Paltrow. "It is what it is," she says of her famous relations. Nevertheless, the family's proud of her, and apparently, they like to work with her, too. Five years ago Moennig appeared in the Williamstown Theatre Festival alongside Paltrow in a production of Shakespeare's As You Like It. And, inasmuch as she's known she'd be an actress for most of her life, she's been dealing with gender-bending almost as long. At age 10, her first part was in a production of Winnie the Pooh. She played Christopher Robin.
