As it turned out director John Waters whose film Pink Flamingo also featured unsimulated fellatio happened to be in the audience, and Sevigny gave him a shout out. The former downtown it girl and Sassy magazine intern rose to wider fame thanks to 's Kids , picked up an Oscar nomination in for Boys Don't Cry , gained status as a queen of indie cinema, and then took a part in 's Brown Bunny. Indeed, Sevigny seems more hurt by a series of other infamous videos: comedian Drew Droege's long running YouTube spoofs of the actresses' perceived persona. Of course, the actress was kind of 'whatever' about it then, and is even more so now. Someone start working on a proper Sevigny drag homage.

Paris Hilton's sex tape wasn't even out then, and it really seemed like Sevigny's career would be forever tarnished by one scene. The agency still represents her. Not only did Sevingy's career not totally die, it hardly even slowed down.
