Laverne Cox shared previously unseen bikini videos of herself to Instagram on Friday to celebrate the release of her new film Promising Young Woman with Carey Mulligan.

Cox was unafraid to proudly display her figure as she told her followers, ‘here ya go.’

A multi-faceted actress who recently executive produced the Netflix documentary, Disclosure, about Hollywood’s depiction of the trans community, Cox released an op-ed on Monday about the importance of making the film.
Speaking about her tough upbringing in Alabama, she shared the bullying she endured and revealed she contemplated suicide at the age of 11 before she moved to New York City and met real trans people.
‘The disparity between the trans people I knew and how we were portrayed on screen inspired me to look critically at images in the media. I longed for a film about trans representation.’

She signed on to the project in 2017 and made it a point to hire trans crewmembers to make a safe space for the all-trans cast who were interviewed, fostering an ‘environment of comfort and trust which inspired them to share very personal experiences.’
Continuing to spread her wings on other types of projects, the Emmy nominated actress recently landed a podcasting series through Shonda Rhimes’ Shondaland Audio and iHeartRadio.
With a current working title of The Laverne Cox Show, which is set to debut in February 2021, Cox will conduct guest interviews that ‘provoke thought and potentially new outlooks.’
‘I can’t wait for everyone to hear the incredibly interesting conversations I have had with my guests,’ she shared.
