Wasn't there a rumour that Asano was transgender or something?

I think that was a joke that was lost in translation somewhat. Basically, he said something like "it would be nice to be a cute girl" and somehow many Western fans took that as confirmation that he wanted a sex change. In actuality, it was said in jest and people didn't bother to look at the original interview or the remark in context.
