Pink Flamingos director John Waters will obtain a star on the Hollywood Stroll of Fame later this month…How divine!
The Pope of Trash is about to be the Trash of Tinseltown, as John Waters is slated to get a star on the Hollywood Stroll of Fame.
The 77-year-old John Waters will obtain his star – designated as the two,763rd – on September 18th as he’s surrounded by frequent collaborators Ricki Lake, Mink Stole and Greg Gorman. As a part of Waters’ Dreamlanders troupe, Lake has appeared in 5 movies for Waters, most notably Hairspray, whereas Stole has appeared in each single one, starting with 1969’s Mondo Trasho. In the meantime, Gorman has photographed Waters quite a few occasions, capturing some well-known photographs of the director’s trademark pencil mustache.
As per Ana Martinez, producer of the Hollywood Stroll of Fame, “John Waters has been an enormous half of popular culture for a few years…As a director, he has created a few of our historic and favourite movie moments and we’re thrilled to welcome him to our landmark location for this well-deserved and everlasting tribute.” Now, the query is what folks will depart on the location, with (pretend?) canine poop, barf baggage and, after all, pink flamingos being the more than likely choices.
John Waters hasn’t made a function since 2004’s A Soiled Disgrace, spending time touring his one-man present (which I extremely suggest, particularly for the Q&A session) and writing books. Certainly one of these, “Liarmouth: A Really feel Unhealthy Romance” – which Waters calls “the craziest factor I’ve written shortly” – will mark his return to directing. Key movies in his oeuvre embody A number of Maniacs, Serial Mother and Pink Flamingos, which was really added to the Nationwide Movie Registry in 2021.
Receiving a star on the Hollywood Stroll of Fame is only one of quite a few industry-wide recognitions for John Waters. The day earlier than the revealing, Waters would be the showcase for an exhibit on the Academy Museum. The exhibit, which can conclude on the finish of October, will supply a whole bunch of items designed to present museumgoers a glimpse into the filthy world of John Waters. There can even be screenings of his filmography. No phrase but if Polyester could have scratch-and-sniff playing cards…
Do you assume John Waters deserves a Hollywood Stroll of Fame star?
