2. Glenn Close

In the film Albert Nobbs, Glenn Close was cast to play a woman who went her through her life as a man in 19th century Ireland. She actually first played the role in an off-Broadway adaption 29 years prior, and believed it would make a good film. She produced it herself and shot the film for under $8 million.
