TORONTO, Sept. 10 (UPI) -- Director Lana, formerly Larry, Wachowski says it was a big decision to confirm her gender-reassignment at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Wearing a dress and sporting pink and purple dreadlocks, the filmmaker was seated with her brother-directing partner Andy, as well as the cast of "Cloud Atlas," when she was asked about her transformation at a weekend press conference for the movie, The Globe and Mail newspaper reported.
"Ah, yeah, I did feel some responsibility to the [Gay Lesbian Bisexual Transgender community] people and some people had been asking me to be more public. But me and Andy, we love our privacy, our anonymity. Being a celebrity doesn't do much to improve yourself. We think it can actually worsen your life. So it was a big decision and it took a long time," she said.
