Top Three New Year’s Resolutions For Aspiring Actresses

Standard

Resolution Number 3:

To finally accept and acknowledge that success usually falls into the laps of those who have a lover or family member with ties to the entertainment industry. What can I say? Life isn’t always fair, no matter how talented you are.

Resolution Number 2:

To never lose your quarters between the cushions of the casting couch. Sure, many women have slept their way to the top, but many MORE have slept their way to the bottom. That pencil-dick playwright isn’t worth it, no matter what he promises you.

And finally, Resolution Number 1:

To recognize, whether it’s to SAG, AEA, AFTRA or yourself, that you will pay dues for the rest of your life if you choose this profession.  It is an exhausting and expensive truism.

Happy New Year! Break a leg.

    Connections definitely help but let’s not forget the law of supply and demand. Life is a number game after all. If only teachers would have told us that there is much more supply of artists that demand in the market we should have considered becoming engineers as daytime profession.
    Or we could have worked out that our teachers are normally failed artists themselves and that fact would have given us the clue whether pursue an artistic career or stay amateur while having a proper job.

    • Sure, it’s a numbers game, but so are a lot of fields. But if you look at the majority of people who are well-known actors, and spend a little time researching how they got there, it’s ASTOUNDING. Almost all of Hollywood, and the majority of Broadway, got their start due to someone they were screwing, were friends with, or had connections to their family. Which is fine, if I had that, I would have used it, but I’m just saying…sh*t ain’t fair and it has NOTHING to do with talent.
