Opening about his top surgery, he had told Oprah Winfrey, “I want people to know that not only has it been life-changing for me, I do believe it is life-saving and it’s the case for so many people.”

“It’s, you know, getting out of the shower and the towel is around your waist, and you’re looking at yourself in the mirror and you’re just like ‘There I am’,” he had said.
