Scarlet Diva (2000)

Scarlet Diva is an erotic and neurotic odyssey that follows the trials and tribulations of feted fictional Italian superstar, Anna Battista (played by Asia), as she makes public appearances to promote her latest release, acts in the epic ‘Cleopatra’s Death’, attends award ceremonies, has screen tests for American blockbusters and gets relentlessly followed around by the paparazzi. But while Anna’s public persona is all glamour and glitz, her personal life is a romantic disaster area and she finds herself caught up in an emotional vortex of sexual experimentation, heavy drug abuse, self-destruction and ultimate disillusionment with the rock star lover who abandons her during pregnancy. “It was always meant to be a celebrity odyssey fueled by sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll.

There was no real message as such – it was just about all the trappings and highs of fame and fortune. It’s all there; producers wanting to eat my pussy in return for a film role, photographer monsters who give me the Special K amphetamine to ensure I’ll provide great tabloid pictures and all that horrible shit. I’m not saying everything happened to me personally, but it’s stuff I knew all about. My life is much more interesting than anything I describe in Scarlet Diva. I can’t say the script was based on everything I’ve done or I’d ruin my life and destroy my reputation. All I’ll say is that it’s a personal voyage through the world of cinema because that’s what I know about. I grew up in film and this film is about movies, movie making and life behind the camera. The film enabled me to get rid of a lot of bullshit in my life and I will admit to it exorcising many demons. But I don’t want people for one second to think Anna’s story was my own disguised”.
