Beyonce To Write And Star In Movie Based On Woman With A ‘Large Derrière’ – Report
Beyonce has reportedly hired acting coaches and writers to put together a movie based on South Africa’s Saartjie Baartman. Baartman was made famous in the 1800s in London freak shows as the woman with a “very large derriere.”
According to The Sun, the South African woman who went by the name Hottentot Venus, filed a lawsuit because she was made to perform against her will, but lost.
Sources say that Beyonce has been requesting loads of books on Saartjie’s life, hoping to bring her story to the big screen.
“Winning an Academy Award would mean everything to her, and she’s a woman who is used to getting exactly what she wants,” the source said.
This movie is going to be bootylicious! Hope it happens. And if this rumor isn’t real, hopefully Beyonce reads it so she will actually get ideas of doing it! Win-win.
