So with doing things little by little, does she get surgery early on as a little child? What steps did/does she take to transition? Just curious if anyone knows.

Miguel Garcia

Hey Nicole, Anna kendrick is from maine

Nervosa Thrash México

Ellen is so discounting

Jessica Jimenez Lovato

I'm so in love with her, she's so beautiful, my queen

Dulce Muñoz

She's so beautiful ??

Daniel Eriksen

So which is she/he now? In this clip looks like girl. The comment about religious people being intolerant was not necessary because that itself is intolerant and non-inclusive. Everyone is different as she is saying. Keep it appropriate. Of course, gender is immutable except for rare cases of hermaphroditic. Other than that, in traditional societies a masculine woman and very effeminate man was perfectly acceptable without stretching the point to 'becoming' the other gender. Today we are too narrow and force everyone to role play something we are not. Got to get back to a balance.


She’s amazing. I just found out thru her story on IG about her background. She’s tough and I admire it

korvisca petrova

I've read her whole story.
It was really a struggle for her family to have her accepted in the society.

I'm so glad that her family supported and fought for her.
I cannot imagine what would have happened otherwise.


Y’all make this world ? go round and round

I thoughg the transgender thing was just apart of her character in supergirl. Either way I'm happy for her.

Stan Smith

Boo! Get off the stage!

Calixto Duarte

Wow I did not know that ? but I love her any was

Comrade Carabao

I reckon her bullies see her now and regret how they acted; virtually any heterosexual man is going to think she's beautiful, even if some refuse to admit it.

Alfred Proffitt

Billey Winn bustos

Buen surte jovenes mujer

Damario Haynes

When I first seen Nicole I did'nt think she was trans at all. Just thought she was born a woman with no transformation.

Less Is More

Wow she's trans for REAL? And not just in show

Emmanuel Makoba

"Assigned male" Smh

Miguel Alerta

I actually thought that CW got a biologically female actress to play a transgender role in Supergirl


Is Nicole a model?

Victoria Osorio

She seems a little like Hailee Steinfeld


Shes beautiful.

Judd C

Is wyatt able to have children? Able to have periods? There is nothing wrong with these questions, its something men in dresses should be able to answer.

Americans generally accept Transgender. But you people don't accept Transage / Transnationality / Transrace / Transspecies .... =(

Isobel Casey

"on the way out the mooses get us" XD


Lol It


Peaples are involving alot now a days, just backwards

Matt Borel

Women are so stuck up and lauded after now guys are becoming women wanting the same attention. The world we live in...

Maggie James

I love that she felt comfortable enough to say her dead name. Not many trans people feel comfortable saying it out loud.

Triple X

You cant create gender out of a bottle
It doesn't work like captain America transition


Ew a transgender girl

C_Zor El

Be what you want to be girl.Even if its a tree??

The Gorilla Knight

Me Agreed

Gag reflex..perpetual

Nazain Bahadur

Ppl say ellen is funny,where?
She is sarcastic,dogmatic and seems like she is fighting with every single guest.


I know a guy who condemned his 2 middle school sons to years of bullying after he spent their college savings to chop his junk off. What a hero.

Elizabeth Godfrey

I think if this is real its bc of people playing God. Making babies in test tubes could of messed everything up

Brett Conlon

Is she in the show on Netflix?

nancy hassan

My story is similar to her i just was kicked out of my home country .

KC Wong


Whats Up Broda

I liked when I first start watching the show but after I found out she's trans I immediately stopped liking her and because I got disgusted.


Assigned male??? Born male


I'm crying because I find this so beautiful. Not only did her parents step up to the challenge, as best they could, but she's also showing so much maturity and empathy for her dad's process of accepting a new reality. This is so inspiring on so many levels!


Today then I know she was a boy, I was thinking this girl look pretty in supergirl cw series, she is biological boy take my mind away

Funk The Juice TV

Dellusional jsut like you.


She’s an actor....

Michelle Louise Davis

she still appears like a man to me and her femininity seems like an act as well, even when she's not on stage acting. her whole persona comes across as fake i still percieve her as male not female. maybe her parents wanted a girl and dressed her up and treated as a girl.

Kaylee Somthin

I almost broken my phone when I saw this
Favorite actor
In Ellen's show
And also melissa was there to but only supergirl stans can relate

SephDaDuck ,

I wanted to write a whole story but long story short ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ here everyone, have some love.

He THINKS his a girl HE IS A BOY

King Brutus XXVI

Lots of comments about her use of "mooses" here. Having been born in Maine and educated around the world I've got to say... completely correct. "Mooses" is just too f*cking fun to say to NOT be correct. Come on, seriously, try saying it without smiling. You're welcome. ;-)


she is my favorite actress
