Screen shot 2014-06-10 at 12.35.01

Laverne Cox isn’t new to being bombarded with obvious, and sometimes offensive questions about being trans. But, ever classy Cox always graciously answers in the name of educating.


The Orange is the New Black star appeared on The Wendy Williams Show yesterday to talk about the Netflix hit, appearing on the cover of TIME and her trans experience.

In the same vein as that Katie Couric interview, Cox was asked intimate details about her body. Williams asked, “Do you have breast implants?”

Cox answered, “Off camera, I can talk to you, but I’ve chosen not to talk about any of the stuff I’ve gotten done, because I think so often when trans people’s experiences are talked about, we far too often focus on surgery and transition, so I don’t talk about that. But I’m very happy with the situation.”

Well said Laverne, well said.
