'Matrix' co-creator ready for sex change
When you're touted as one-half of the creative genius behind the science fiction movie of the decade, morphing between the sexes is probably just another research trip. At least that is one way to describe Larry Wachowski latest move.
According to the Chicago Sun Times
, Wachowski, who created the Matrix
series along with his brother Andy, is working toward becoming "Linda," surgically and otherwise. "As always, it was impossible to get any comment from the press-shy Wachowskis, but several longtime friends of the Rogers Park native confirm Wachowski is planning to complete the process of becoming a woman," reports the Chicago Sun Times.
When Thea Bloom, Larry's former wife, accused Wachowski of being "extremely dishonest with me in our personal life," blaming the separation on "very intimate circumstances concerning which I do not elaborate at this time for the reasons of his personal privacy," a sex change wasn't the first thing to come to mind. But those close to Larry relate the he has been "living and dressing as a woman for some time."
