Listen here, Hunty. RuPaul's Drag Race is undeniably one of the highest rated reality TV shows in the world — for darn good reason. The tongue-in-cheek competition series has raised the art form to a glittered and gorgeous global platform, and viewers just can’t get enough. 

While RuPaul may have brought dressing in drag to the forefront of our consciousness, the practice isn’t new, even in Hollywood. Countless stars have dressed in drag in various movies and TV shows — some long before the show’s debut. From Tyler Perry to the legendary Julie Andrews, many celebs have slipped into new gender roles to help folks understand that it’s a beautiful thing to express yourself in so many ways.
