The Hollywood Reporter:
What's your worst audition?
"We just didn't get you."
"We just didn't respond to you."
I'd just had my last kid..I was pushing like 180 pounds at the time. I'm like, "You guys, I just don't feel physically fit yet." I had my Spanx on and looked like a damn sausage, but I went in and thought I did a really good job. I got home and get the call from my agents. I'm like, "I did good, right?" And they say, "You did great. The problem is you're just …" "I'm too fat." "Yeah, we're just going to wait a little bit." I said, "I already told you this!" The weight thing is a crappy thing in this town, you know?
On the first season of "Mad Men," I had to wear a fat suit and prosthetic makeup to make me look bigger.... We all have this perception of what we're supposed to look like. But that's what's so great about all these women here today: We're all completely different-looking, you know? We're all beautiful, but real women.
I agree. I've never had somebody say to me that I needed to look a certain way for a role, but I've always lived in dread of what that would be like. It's our responsibility to play these full-fledged women, and to play women who look like people we actually see in life. It's more interesting, and I think audiences appreciate it, too.
It's a little bit different for me because I'll audition for something and they'll just decide that they're not going "ethnic" with a character, which I hear a lot.
The Hollywood Reporter:
Casting directors still use the word "ethnic"?
If not "black," then yeah. People have artistic license … that's what casting is: fitting the right look to the right character. Whereas you could maybe lose some weight, there's not really anything I can do, nor would I want to, about being black.
Out & About in LA - Special, designated area outside The Music Center, Downtown LA. The quintessential opinion of smoking anywhere in Los Angeles. I love this spot, the visual says it all: “We respect your rights, it’s OK if you smoke, but you have to stay in this little square, outside, barricaded from all the non-smoking folks, and don’t you DARE step over those warning lines. Here, have a little shade.”
It’s like watching rare, angry, caged animals.
