The Wanchowski Brothers, Andy and Larry, are known for their multinational success with the ‘Matrix’ movie from 1999 starring Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne and Carrie-Anne Moss as the main characters.
Ever since the early 2000s the media has dropped numerous hints that Larry was transitioning from a male to a female. Neither of the siblings ever confirmed or denied the rumors. However, many sources close to the Wanchowskis had been saying through the years that these rumors were nothing but just rumors. According to Rovi Corporation Larry changed into Lana in 2008 after the siblings’ hit ‘Speed Racer’. Deadline.com, New York Times and The Hollywood Reporter have been referring to the siblings as Andy and Lana Wanchowski. Yet, nothing was confirmed until 2012 when Lana Wanchowski herself made her first public appearance after her transitioning.
The siblings explained they never hid Lana’s transitioning from their family and friends but they were very shy and wanted to keep some kind of a personal life instead of being in the spotlight 24/7.
