So here we are.
It’s hard to make some people understand what the life of an actor is truly like, partially because the portrayal of actors in TV and movies is rather narrow. It reinforces untrue stereotypes that seep into reality in an unfortunate way, and thusly people start to believe that only the bad actors do commercials while the best actors do movies, and TV actors are somewhere in the middle, except for the big film stars who are doing society a huge public service by occasionally humbling themselves on the tube so you have something pretty to look at. This is not altogether true... but still, be sure to thank those big film-to-TV stars for their sacrifice if you should ever serve them coffee. They’re the real heroes. (Sorry about all that sarcasm dripping on the floor there.)
