Lana used to be Larry Wachowski, who married his college sweetheart Thea Bloom in 1993. Larry directed the 1999 box-office hit The Matrix. In 2002, Thea Bloom filed for divorce, alleging that Larry had “been extremely dishonest with me in our personal life” and that their separation was “based on very intimate circumstances concerning which I do not elaborate at this time for the reasons of his personal privacy.”
[Wachoswki's] date at the  Cannes Film Festival went on to tell British tabloids that Wachowski was a cross-dresser, and he raised eyebrows at L.A. premiere of The Matrix Reloaded by showing up with a woman who purportedly was a dominatrix who used to run an S&M Web site.
Yep. So now, on the eve of the release of his/her new film, Cloud Atlas, Larry has officially become Lana:
Lana Wachowski revealed she has transitioned while promoting her new film, the New York Post reported.
Lana has been transitioning for years now, the Post also reported. This new clip for “Cloud Atlas,” starring Tom Hanks and Halle Berry, appears to be her first public appearance since transitioning.
In the trailer, Lana introduces the film with her brother, Andy Wachowski, and director Tom Tykwer.
“Hi, I’m Lana,” she says with her hair styled in pink dreadlocks.
The New York Post headline, of course: “Director’s Cut.” Ouch.
