Wachowski has confirmed she has followed in the footsteps of her sibling and movie-making partner Lana Wachowski, who was formerly known as Larry, and has undergone gender reassignment surgery, reports a website.

She said in a statement to a newspaper: “I’m transgender. And yeah, I’ve transitioned.

“I’m out to my friends and family. Most people at work know too. Everyone is cool with it. Yes, thanks to my fabulous sister they have done it before, but also because they’re fantastic people. Without the love and support of my wife and friends and family, I would not be where I am today.”
