Jeffrey Tambor told Seth Meyers on last night’s Late Night with Seth Meyers that he was getting off a plane in the airport when a man pointed, approached him, and grabbed him because of his role as transgender matriarch Maura Pfeffermen in Transparent.
Tambor says he thought the man was going to “lay [him] out” and was surprised when after being grabbed the man said, “Thank you. Thank you for teaching me about something I did not know.”
“The world is changing. They’re not going to stand for this hatred. They’re not going to stand for this nonsense and this misgendering and all of this crap. It’s a brand new world.”
