Italian male movie star to change sexNovember 24th, 2011 - 10:00 am ICT by IANS
Rome, Nov 24 (IANS/AKI) Italian actor Giuseppe Schisano says he will soon change his sex and be called “Vittoria”.
“My soul is one of a woman. I feel more normal,” the 30-year-old actor said.
“I couldn’t eat or sleep. Just looking at myself in the mirror bothered me. Slowly I came out to my friends,” he said.
A native of Naples, the actor is taking hormones and must undergo psychological therapy before his sex-change operation.
He says he is literally a woman trapped inside a man’s body.
“When I went to the doctor to start the hormone therapy that precedes the operation, the doctor was surprised that I wasn’t already taking the hormones. My levels showed that my female hormones were higher than my male ones,” he said.
“In reality I always felt a strong feminine side that I hid for years.”
In his latest film “Cane Pazzo” (or “Crazy Dog”), Schisano plays the role of a macho journalist obsessed by his research into a serial killer.
