This was me on my way home from an audition for King Kong where I was told I was too ugly for the part. This was a pivotol moment for me. This one rogue opinion could have derailed my dreams of becoming an actress or force me to pull myself up by the bootstraps and believe in myself. I took a deep breath and said, "I'm you think I'm too ugly for your film but you are just one opinion in a sea of thousands and I'm off to a kinder tide."
Today I have 18 Academy awards.
