Now famous A-list actress, Anne Hathaway, went through a scenario most would think would result in her not getting a part. However, the exact opposite occurred when she was auditioning for The Princess Diaries as Mia Thermopolis. She supposedly fell off her chair while trying to impress the directing staff. Rather then yell “Next!”, they miraculously saw through the incident and found her perfect for the role. She was hired immediately. This movie served as her big breakthrough into mainstream Hollywood success.
“I gave up my struggle with perfection a long time ago. That is a concept I don’t find very interesting anymore. Everyone just wants to look good in the photographs. I think that is where some of the pressure comes from. Be happy. Be yourself, the day is about a lot more.” – Anne Hathaway
Moral Of The Story: Don’t be so afraid to make mistakes, be yourself, and let the chips fall where they may.
