It sounds like Bruce Jenner's interview with Diane Sawyer will be gripping stuff
After months of speculation over his rumoured sex change, Bruce Jenner has finally spoken out.
The 65-year-old star has filmed an interview with Diane Sawyer in which it looks like he’ll be discussing his reported transition into a woman and the first clip of Bruce talking on the show is pretty emotional.
‘My whole life has been getting me ready for this,’ the former Olympian is heard saying in a new teaser clip released ahead of the programme’s airing on ABC next Friday night.
The 15-second snippet also shows footage of Bruce and Diane chatting as they take a walk outside. At one point Bruce looks thoughtfully into the distance while Diane gazes at him with a quizzical look on her face.
A voiceover says: ‘Bruce Jenner: the interview. The journey. The decisions. The future.’
Bruce has never confirmed or denied rumours that he is undergoing gender reassignment to become a woman but reports claim that he’ll present his female self on the show and say goodbye to Bruce.
Hearing just a short clip of Bruce discussing his rumoured ‘journey’ suggests that the documentary will be pretty emotional and a press release for the programme says the intimate interview will be ‘far-ranging’.
The topic is obviously a very sensitive one and it’s been reported that Bruce wants to watch the show with his family to help them understand what he’s going through.
Bruce has teenage daughters Kendall and Kylie with ex-wife Kris Jenner as well as four elder children from his previous marriages. He’s also stepdad to the Kardashian siblings and it’s thought that he’d like them all together when the interview airs.
‘Many questions and perhaps things his children didn’t understand or can’t wrap their head around will be answered,’ a source tells Hollywood Life.
‘He’s certain his children, even Kris, will have a lot of emotions watching. He wants to be there with each of them, comforting them and wiping tears from their faces as he unravels a secret that’s been eating him alive for most of his life.’
