Cher talks about coming to terms with
Chaz Bono's sex change in the December issue of Vanity Fair,
available nationwide on November 9.
The 41-year-old Bono, who was born
Chastity Bono to gay idol Cher and the late entertainer-politician
Sonny Bono, announced last June that he was eight months into gender
He's previously said that he was
“miserable” pretending to be a girl and that he “wasted”
years worrying about transitioning.
In the interview, Cher, who stars
opposite Christina Aguilera in the upcoming film Burlesque,
said she couldn't imagine being anything other than a woman.
“If I woke up tomorrow in a guy's
body, I would just kick and scream and cry and fucking rob a bank,
because I cannot see myself as anything but who I am – a girl. I
would not take it as well as Chaz has. I couldn't imagine it.”
She adds: “She's a very smart girl –
boy! This is where I get into trouble. My pronouns are fucked. I
still don't remember to call her 'him.'”
