You know you're a struggling actress when...


You know you're a struggling actress when...


You have an array of solid colored tops just for auditions and headshots.

You know what color looks best on you.

You know your "best angle".

You have waitressing experience.

You don't have a savings or health insurance.

You know AT LEAST one creepy guy you keep in contact with only for networking purposes...

You know how to flirt with the whole room and still go home alone (a very good skill to have)...

You know what "cheat", "slate", "improv", "sides", and "off-book" mean.

You have your go-to 3 to 5 actresses that you always name when someone asks who your favorite actress is...

You have your 3-5 TV shows or movie roles that you name when someone asks you your ideal role...

You've done at least one project that you hope will never re-surface when you become famous...

You write-off make-up, clothing, headshots, printer and ink, acting classes, and anything else you can think of when doing your taxes...

At least one time you have dressed up and drank champagne at home while watching the Oscars on TV... admit it!

When you meet someone who JUST moved to LA to pursuing acting, you secretly size them up to see how long they will last...

Many numbers in your phone also have the one-day job that you met them on, so you'll remember who they are...

You don't know how people got jobs before there was a Craigslist!

You hold onto old clothes you'd usually never wear, but you think that MAYBE there will be a role that calls for overalls, studded jeans, a corset, or cowboy hat... just maybe.

You've tried smoking at least once just to be closer to the director or celebs on their smoke break...

You try to remember the celebrities you've met/seen so you can tell people back at home...

You think aspiring actresses or actors who go on reality shows are sell-outs!

You've heard of Stanislavsky, Hagen, Adler, Strasberg, and Meisner, but you can't tell all of their techniques apart...

You dread memorizing monologues and it stays on your To-Do List until an audition comes up asking for one and then you freak out!!!

You know what Samuel French is, and it's Heaven if you've been in one...

You know the difference between SAG and Aftra, and you know how to become either...

You've done extra work.

You've looked for your small head in the background on a TV show.



Just some of mine. Feel free to add yours!
