Actor Jeffrey Tambor, who plays transgender woman Maura Pfefferman in the Amazon Studios original drama “Transparent,” was “humbled” to meet with Bruce Jenner following his transition to Caitlyn.
Entertainment Weekly reports Tambor appeared on The Late Late Show Wednesday night, where he discussed meeting the former Associated Press Male Athlete of the Year for the first time.
Tambor then said he was “humbled” by the reality TV star.
“A group of us from the cast had dinner with her and she’s amazing and gorgeous and very dedicated,” the actor told host James Corden.
He also descried Jenner as “well-versed” and “committed,” before exclaiming transgender issues are “serious business.”
“Lives at are stake,” the 71-year-old said.
When asked by Corden whether he thought he looked older or younger as a Maura, Tambor replied, “I think I look better.”
