Not ‘pretty enough’ to succeed? Well, just look at them now!
Hollywood is an extremely shallow place with no heart or soul. Hundreds if not thousands of people arrive daily, armed with their big dreams and buckets of hope, convinced that they could be ‘the next big thing’ and every day most of those big dreams are shattered in swift and often cruel blows by casting agents, modelling agencies and directors who feel nothing to let you know exactly what they think of you.
When you look at Reese Witherspoon today, it’s hard to believe that she had a tough climb to the top. But, she did!
When I first came Los Angeles all I heard was, ‘No, not right, not tall enough, not pretty enough, not smart enough’. But I didn’t really care about their opinions. I’m stubborn.” – Reese Witherspoon
