How is it possible to mistake Johnny Depp as a woman? Okay, I'll grant you that in his younger days he was quite beautiful. And, in Sleepy Hollow, he's also very pretty. But that doesn't make him a her, nor could it be possible to confuse him for a her.
For one thing...his voice. It's very deep...far too much to be a girl's. For another, facial hair. Thirdly, Adam's apple. Women don't have adam's apples...only men do.
I don't mean to sound like an ass or a troll; really, I'm just curious.
