"Larry Wachowski's purported sex change is right up there with 'Paul Is Dead' and the 'Beaver Died in Vietnam.'"

So, no, it's not true.

Hilarious! The rumors of his sex change have been greatly exaggerated. I love these kinds of stories. Everyone getting all worked up over rumors that are allowed to simmer.

Can't trust shocking celebrity news anymore I suppose. At least we still have the fact that Mr. Rogers was an Marine sniper.

Or "Kerry on a boat for Christmas in Cambodia"

I can't tell if you were kidding or not -- but no, he wasn't. :)

I'm glad this latest rumor turned out to be false. I was almost forced to care about the Wachowskis again.

From the article:

"Either he was becoming a woman or turning into a pygmy."

I'm going with pygmy.

What's truly impressive about Stewart's military career is what he actually gave up his acting career to join the Army Air Corps nine months *before* Pearl Harbor. He saw that war was coming and wanted to be ready to help. Prior to that, he and a few other Hollywood celebrities had pooled their money to establish a training school for military pilots.

It is almost impossible to imagine a modern Hollywood celebrity showing that level of patriotism and self-sacrifice today.

Considering the rediculous plots of the Matrix movies, I didn't think it was possible for the Wachowski brothers to be uglier than they are stupid, but that guy's picture proves me wrong. Holy Cow what a strange man.

Hey, we still have Captain Kangaroo being a Navy Seal who wore the red coat to cover up his tatoos.
