Back in January of last year, it was rumored that the Wachowski Brothers - who wrote and directed "Bound" and the Matrix trilogy - were actually the directors of "V for Vendetta", but they chose to take their name off because at the time Larry Wachoswki was undergoing gender reassignment. And yes, you read that right. He was in the middle of a sex change operation, and they wanted to avoid the media as much as possible. And it wasn't the first weird thing Larry had ever done. He also famously divorced his wife to start a relationship with a dominatrix named Ilsa Stix. So, if you're keeping score, he's now a woman, but a lesbian woman. RatedM.com says:
The major aspects of the surgery have been complete for some time now, and he (I'm sorry, "she") is now undergoing further hormone treatment and psychological therapy. He has also legally changed his name. The change has put a tremendous strain on his relationship with his brother, but Andy sticks by him regardless of his choices. The source also mentioned that Lana, formerly Larry, is contemplating leaving film for good. This was recommended by his therapist. If he does stay in the team, he obviously won't be a "he" anymore, so the team would be called simply "The Wachowskis".So what of his long time affair with the famous dominatrix Mistress Ilsa? Well Larry has always been fascinated, if not obsessed, with lesbianism. So he would still be "gay" so to speak, but in the woman + woman category. All of his most recent public appearances were as a woman, save his court appearance, in which he was still very effeminate.Well now maybe I will get that sex change after all. She looks gorgeous. I bet guys who get sex changes are really happy. Just walks on the beach in a slinky bikini, or romantic picnics by the lake, or maybe just a ride on a tandem bike, laughing and flirting with their new hunky lover. If Lana wants to give up movies, maybe she can be a sexy cat burglar, lithe and graceful with long red hair, slinking around the night in a skin tight bodysuit as an international jewel thief. Her life must be fantastic!
