The director of "The Matrix" and the highly-anticipated film "Cloud
Atlas" has become the first major Hollywood director to publicly come
out as transgender.
Lana Wachowski has revealed her transition while promoting her new film, the New York Post reported.
Lana, formerly known as Larry, has been transitioning from a man to a woman for years now, the Post also reported. This new clip for "Cloud Atlas," starring Tom Hanks and Halle Berry, appears to her first public appearance since transitioning.
In the trailer, Lana introduces the film with her brother, Andy Wachowski, and director Tom Tykwer.
"Hi, I'm Lana," she says with her hair styled in pink dreadlocks.
Lana's personal life has been a source of headline fodder for years now.
