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.

The Wachowskis' past films include the "Matrix" trilogy, as well as "Speed Racer." Their latest effort stars Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugh Grant, Jim Broadbent and Susan Sarandon.
