Lana Wachowski Went to High School With Michelle Obama

It's a coincidence worthy of Cloud Atlas! At Fantastic Fest this week, Movieline's Jen Yamato approached filmmaking siblings Lana and Andy Wachowski to compliment Lana's sculpted arms and compare them to Michelle Obama's; replied Lana, "She went to our high school!" Turns out both Michelle and Lana attended Chicago's Whitney M. Young High School together in the early eighties, though by the time younger brother Andy got there, Michelle had already graduated. A White House photo op with Michelle and The Matrix directors ought to be forthcoming, don't you think?
