Scarlett Johansson's announcement that she was exiting >Rub & Tug — the feature biopic about transgender mobster Dante "Tex" Gill that was to be helmed by her Ghost in the Shell director, Rupert Sanders — hit hard and traveled fast throughout Hollywood when it broke Friday. "I have decided to respectfully withdraw my participation in the project" following ethical concerns about her participation as a cisgender actress, read the star's statement, in part. "Our cultural understanding of transgender people continues to advance, and I've learned a lot from the community since making my first statement about my casting and realize it was insensitive." 
In that moment, trans actress and producer Rain Valdez (Transparent) was seated in front of a camera in The Hollywood Reporter's Los Angeles offices for an interview about trans representation in entertainment. Informed of the news with cameras rolling, she paused to catch her breath and push back tears. "That actually makes me a little emotional," she said, her voice shaking. "It’s not an easy industry for trans women. It’s not an easy industry for trans men."
