Matrix director Larry Wachowski is now a lady.
In a new extended trailer, Larry – now Lana – explains the concept for his new movie called Cloud Atlas for the first time ever as a woman. This announcement makes Lana the first major Hollywood director to come out as a transgender.
Back in 2003, Larry showed up dressed as a woman, and later that year, the Gothamist reported:
“Every indication I have says that Larry Wachowski is now in the process of changing his sex,” Gothamist writer Poland wrote. “Dressing in public like a woman, taking female hormones and yes, having a sex change operation.”
Now as a full woman with pink dreadlocks, Lana is gearing up to release one of the most anticipated movies of the year: Cloud Atlas starring Tom Hanks and Halle Berry.
