There has been a lot of talk about sexism in Hollywood over the past few weeks, months and years, and with there not being that many strong female characters available for actresses in Hollywood these days, the up and coming stars are having to try different ways of making a name for themselves in the acting industry.
Entourage actress Emmanuelle Chriqui has enjoyed a successful acting career to date and she has spoken about making a name for herself in Hollywood, while also giving her top tips to being successful in Hollywood. Emmanuelle admits that she has taken the slow road to become a Hollywood star, whereas there are many young women today who are too eager to get naked in order to make a name for themselves.
Chriqui explained, "I’m still discovering how to be big while absolutely staying true to myself. I believe to be famous I must do it in ways that don’t compromise me. I’ve seen what young starlets do to make it. If you’re grounded and go steady, it’s a slower, harder journey and you can sacrifice the fast road to fame. I grew up in the theater. Early on in a local theatrical group, at age 7, I played the baby ghost. I knew I must be an actress. I feel it makes me alive. If I could no longer act, it would be like taking my breath away."
She added, "Still, I take the slow road — not like some young actresses who go naked on magazine covers. Talents I respect don’t do that. I’d have more followers and a bigger career if I followed that go-nude path. There’s lots of that. It’s a fine line. Great to celebrate sensuality, but not wise to be defined by that. Maybe . . . who knows . . . maybe I’ll think differently 15 years from now."
As far as her own acting career goes, Emmanuelle Chriqui has a rather busy couple of years coming up, with a number of projects set to hit the big screen. The most notable project that Emmanuelle has coming out is the Entourage movie, which will see her reprise her role as Sloan when the movie is finally released on June 12, 2015 in the US and June 19, 2015 in the UK. We cannot wait.
