Izzard unrecognised as transvestite in U.S.
Eddie Izzard struggles to convince Americans he's a transvestite after toning down his cross-dressing while concentrating on his acting career.
However, he insists he will soon break out of "boy mode" and show Americans his more colourful side.
Izzard explains, "I tell everyone I'm a transvestite over and over again. I never thought that I would be on TV begging people to believe I'm a transvestite. But I am being strategic about this. I've been in 'boy mode' for the past few years but I know I can be in 'girl mode' if I want to.
"I would know what to do. It's all still there. It's in my toolbox. I am a card-carrying transvestite. Always have been, always will be."
