Bruce Jenner finally puts the rumors to rest. Bruce Jenner identifies as female, the reality star confirmed to Diane Sawyer in an interview that aired on Friday’s 20/20.
“I’m me. I’m a person, and this is who I am,” Bruce said. “I’m not stuck in anybody’s body. It’s just who I am as a human being. My brain is much more female than it is male. It’s hard for people to understand that, but that’s what my soul is.”
Jenner says he has undergone cosmetic facial surgeries over the years and took the female hormone estrogen for five years in the late 1980s. Jenner has been back on hormones for the past year and a half.
“I just can’t pull the curtain any longer,” Jenner said. “I’ve built a nice little life, I just can’t—again, Bruce lives a lie. She is not a lie. I just can’t do it anymore.”
“If I die, which, I could be diagnosed next week with cancer — and boom you’re gone,” Jenner said. “I would be so mad at myself that I didn’t explore that side of me. You know? And I don’t want that to happen.”
