The Yahoo tribute to Sylvia Kristel revealed many things I did not know about her, my two favorite are that "in 2006 Kristel received a special jury prize at the Tribeca Film Festival for a short animated film she directed called "Topor et Moi", the title a reference to the French Illustrator and filmmaker Roland Topor".
And I love her John Wayne quote, also from the Yahoo tribute... "People don't assume John Wayne shoots people and rides a horse on weekends," she told a Dutch interviewer. "People think I'm a nymphomaniac."
What's so funny about that quote is, the odds are higher that John Wayne probably did shoot and ride horses on his weekends than Kristel's reputation being based on her movies.
I wonder if it would have messed up society if a women who is perfectly capable of being a fine actress, starts off doing porn, then ends up being an accomplished actress.
The "advice" her boyfriend gave her before she did her first porn film, "It will never pass the censors, don't worry about it", definitely not words to live by.
