Why Not Take the Easy Road to Success?
In today’s world, commonly referred to as the “microwave society,” posting outrageous cell phone videos on the Internet and being an emotionally toxic cast member on reality TV are often seen as the get-famous-quick doors of opportunity you should use to skyrocket your way to top of the entertainment ladder.
In the highly anticipated film “Baggage Claim” starring Paula Patton and a list of established and emerging on-screen talent, one cast member cuts through the glitz and glamour with a dose of reality for anyone in any profession, especially those anxiously seeking awards, accolades and access to the brutal blinding bright lights in Hollywood.
“The elevator to success is broken, take the stairs,” says Jenifer Lewis. The 56-year-old actress never shies away from being blunt and bold on-camera, as seen in her body of work in film, television and theater. She’s exceptionally comfortable in her various roles and characters but perhaps the most provocative line Lewis will ever deliver is the most recent, off-script but on-point, comment about advice for people looking to get into the entertainment business the fast way.
