Man be­hind The Ma­trix is now a Ms

Midweek Sport - - THURSDAY AUG 1 -

THE di­rec­tor of the hit Ma­trix Tril­ogy of films has outed him­self as a trans­sex­ual.

Larry Wa­chowski is the man be­hind the block­busters which starred Keanu Reeves and made more than £1bn at the box of­fice.

But he’s now turned into a woman.

In a trailer for his new film, Cloud At­las, star­ring Tom Hanks and Halle Berry, he in­tro­duces him­self as Lana ( above).

Wear­ing a black top with his shoul­der length hair dyed pink, he says: “Hi, I’m Lana.”

The news is set to rock Hol­ly­wood as it has been re­vealed he’s been tak­ing hor­mone ther­apy as part of his sex change for a decade.

Ques­tions first started be­ing asked about his sex­u­al­ity back in 2002 when he was snapped leav­ing The Dun­geon, a Los Angeles S&M club.

A Hol­ly­wood in­sider said: “It’ll be weird see­ing him as Lana in­stead of Larry, but what­ever sex he is, he’s still a leg­end!”
