Last night (July 26), Andy Cohen welcomed actress and LGBTQ advocate Laverne Cox alongside Rosanna Arquette on his late show Watch What Happens Live.

On the show, Cohen asked Cox what she thought of the recent controversy surrounding actress Scarlett Johansson’s acceptance and eventual abdication of a trans role in the upcoming film Rub and Tug.

“Right now, at this moment, I just want to celebrate Pose and all the trans actors that are doing their thing right now,” Cox said. “Trans actors are killing it right now. That show and shows like Asia Kate Dillon on Billions, Elliot Fletcher on Shameless and The Fosters are proving that trans people can get the job done, so I’m all about that.
