The director of 'The Matrix' has become the first major Hollywood director to publicly come out as transgender.
Larry Wachowski made a public debut as Lana Wachowski during a promotional video for her new highly anticipated film, 'Cloud Atlas'.
"Hi, I'm Lana," a pink-haired Wachowski - who has reportedly been undergoing hormone therapy as part of his sex change treatment for nearly a decade - said in a soft voice.
At the height of The Matrix's popularity, Wachowski left his wife for a dominatrix called Ilsa Strix.
The 47-year-old’s new movie, based on a sci-fi novel by British author David Mitchell, stars Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugh Grant and Susan Sarandon.
