John Waters Celebrates the Holidays (In His Own Filthy Way)
Film director and screenwriter John Waters has made good by putting a twist on that old saying "one man's trash is another man's treasure" by changing it to say "one man's trash is his own treasure." With a string of cult and mainstream feature trash films (including "Multiple Maniacs," "Female Trouble," "Pink Flamingos," "Cry-Baby," "Hairspray," "Serial Mom" and "A Dirty Shame"), Waters has become an icon and celebrity. Let's face it: monikers such as "The Filthiest Man Alive" and "The Pope of Trash" don't get bestowed upon just anyone.
"I've gotten "The Duke of Dirt," "The Anal Ambassador," "The Ayatollah of Assholes," says Waters. "You wouldn't believe some of them. I've got more titles than Prince Charles." We know, however, that it's not the title that makes the man. It's the man that makes the title.
As an actress, BeBe was introduced to film with a lead role in the independent film "Under One Sun" with her character dealing with religious, racial and gender issues. Additionally, she appeared in the campy musical "Devious, Inc" (Australian Film Festival, San Francisco Short Film Fest) also adding additional vocals to the musical soundtrack. Both of these performances led to her selection for a lead role in Aisha Media’s next short film series, "Con-tin.u.um" to be released in 2012.
