This week’s guest, a thirty-year veteran behind the scenes, offers a word of caution (actually several words). Mark ye well:
In Hollywood it’s always the movement UP that is considered positive. “Climbing the ladder.” “The sky’s the limit.” “A rising star.” “It’s gone through the roof.”
But, a warning on your ascent aspiring stars of cinema. Please be mindful that gravity’s rainbow is always there to pull you back. Always remember = the higher you fly, the further you’ll fall. And, on the downward decent there is rarely someone there to catch you. (Note: your agent did not sign on to attend Betty Ford and hold your hand for three months.)
Don’t let the bright lights of Hollywood ‘blind you’!
