Eddie Izzard first realized he was a transvestite when he was 4 years old. He had a fondness for female clothes, and derived immense pleasure from wearing them, so much so that he began repeatedly wearing them as much as he could.

 For the information of all our readers, being a transvestite isn’t the same as having different sexual preferences. It just means one chooses to wear clothes of the other sex and by doing so gets pleasure from this action.

So even though he is a cross-dresser, Eddie is not gay. In fact, he has been in three serious relationships before. Although he maintained the relationships were serious in nature, he could not build anything concrete out of it. Eddie’s first girlfriend was his college girlfriend of whom we do not know much. What we do know about his first girlfriend is that she helped him come out and accept himself being a transvestite.

His first serious relationship was in England before he made his journey to the US .The woman with whom he maintained this relationship still happened to be unknown to the media and Eddie refrains from answering any questions regarding his relationship with her.

The only relationship that Eddie made public was when he dated Sarah Townsend, who directed his documentary Believe: The Eddie Izzard story. His relationship with Townsend lasted roughly three years in which the couples were seen to be immensely in love. There was even talks of them getting married. The couples also tried to have children, but were unsuccessful. This could have been the reason of their unexpected split. He is still very fond of Sarah and maintains a healthy relationship with her.

However, his most talked about relationship by the media and the press was with his girlfriend Minnie Driver. He was with Driver after he split with Townsend and the couples were in a live in relationship. There were rumors circulating that they had married secretly in a small wedding ceremony, in which only friends and family were invited. His relationship with Driver lasted even shorter than with Townsend roughly a year and a half.

During this time the couple made papers very frequently and were photographed very often. However, every time question of marriage came up, they avoided or rather changed the subject .Even in this relationship Eddie did not have any children. After his affair with Driver ended, Eddie has not had any serious relationships .He has said he has been to blind dates set up by friends and family, but hasn’t met anybody interesting yet.

Eddie was studying to be a financial consultant in college but the idea stopped to interest him and he left college after only attending for a year. Eddie began his career as a comedian through street performances and then going on to do stand-up comedy .Eddie’s career has a come a long way from that of a street performer to featuring in Hollywood blockbuster movies like Oceans Thirteen, The Chronicles of Narnia Prince Caspian, The Wild  , Igor and Cars2.

Eddie was born in an Arabic country formerly known as the Colony of Eden .He is 53 years of age and active on Twitter and Instagram under the username @eddieizzard.
