    Not sure if I should have included Hilary Swank for her role in Boys Don’t Cry as it is technically transgender. I omitted her from the list just to be safe. Also I included McConaughey because I think the character is either gay or bisexual, but I can understand if someone thinks he is not. The history of Ron Woodroof is very unclear.

    Who has the best performance? No homophobia or discrimination allowed on this thread however.

    I’m not entirely sure regarding Ron Woodroof being gay or bisexual, mainly because he was such a homophobe in the film, and even if it is unclear, we should still just stick to what the film says. But yeah, you’re probably right

    A really tough choice. I could throw a dart and be ok with where it lands.

    Ledger without a doubt.  Penn is the only other one I would consider despite a few other good performances up here like Theron.  McConaghuey was superb, didn’t think about him bc he did not play a gay role, doesn’t matter if his character in real life was bi or gay, Ron was not gay in any way shape or form in the film.
