de bene esse: literally, of well-being, morally acceptable but subject to future validation or exception
Portrayed in newspaper profiles as outspoken and tough, actress Ruth Roman entertained few illusions about the movie business. In a 1949 interview, she told Hedda Hopper: "I love everything about show business, even the junk. You can't change the junk. People have tried. So you might as well accept it along with the good. Acting is my life. The profession can break my heart. In fact, it already has several times. But I love it."
