Is Tilda Swinton androgynous?

Famous for playing androgynous angels (Constantine) and non-binary sorcerers (Doctor Strange), Tilda is currently living with the father of her two children, playwright John Byrne.

Her toyboy lover, Sandro Kopp, a German-born artist who is almost two decades younger than Tilda, sometimes lives with them as well.

When asked about their relationship in 2008, Tilda told Daily Mail that her open marriage is quite normal.

“What is true is that John and I live here with our children and Sandro is sometimes here with us, and we travel the world together. We are all a family.”

In an interview with The WIP, she said she identifies as gender fluid but that she’s “probably a woman.”

“I don’t know if I could ever really say that I was a girl – I was kind of a boy for a long time. I don’t know, who knows? It changes”.

When did David Bowie and Tilda Swinton meet?

Tilda starred in Bowie’s music video for “The Stars (Are Out Tonight)” and also paid tribute to him as a celebrated glam-rock singer named Marianne Lane in the 2015 psychological drama film “A Bigger Splash,” which references David Bowie’s glam alter ego Ziggy Stardust.

The music video for The music video for “The Stars (Are Out Tonight)” premiered in February 2013 and stars David Bowie and English actress Tilda Swinton as his wife

The two doppelgangers first met when David Bowie called Tilda to ask if she’d star in the music video for “The Stars (Are Out Tonight).”

“The moment happens when the phone rings and it’s someone who calls themself David Bowie, and you never stop pinching yourself,” she told The Daily Beast.

“It was the easiest thing in the world. I was talking recently with a friend of mine who’s determined to never meet her heroes, and I have another friend who’s been horribly disillusioned a couple of times. But I’ve had a wonderful ride with meeting people who have been my North Stars, and Bowie’s definitely one of them. He feels like my cousin; like the cousin I never had.”

What is Tilda Swinton’s net worth?

She has an estimated net worth of $14 million, a number that likely would be much higher if Tilda hadn’t spent the 1980s and 1990s acting largely in unprofitable arthouse films and experimental movies.

Tilda has two children, twins Honor Swinton Byrne and Xavier Swinton Byrne.
