John Waters, the often controversial film maker known for his pencil thin mustache, knows how to ruffle some feathers.
He sticks up for porn stars and spoke out for a follower of Charles Manson. But Waters told the Chronicle that when he really wants to cause a stir in San Francisco, he brings up his love for Muni (particularly the N-Judah).
Waters has lived in the city on and off since the 1970’s, and just over two years ago bought a one-bedroom apartment in Nob Hill, his first permanent home in the area. The people-watching is what first caught Waters’ eye in San Francisco – he liked that there are people here even more odd than himself.
Waters biggest hit was “Hairspray”, which was turned into a Broadway hit and even more recently a movie. He’s also an actor, journalist, author, artist, and art collector. The Chronicle reports that his fourth floor apartment is scattered with art, including a pillow case embroidered with a burning police car (that his mother made), and a sculpture that mimics a spilt bottle of pills.
But one could argue that Waters has always been a little strange: as a teenager, his mother dropped him off at a bohemian bar in Baltimore, in hopes that he might make some friends he could actually get along with.
