While there are a lot of stars in Hollywood these days who make it look easy to have a long and successful acting career, there are also a lot of struggling actors in the industry, who are working hard at their acting career but barely getting by. It is for this reason that there are so many parents out there who do not want their children to chase their dream of becoming a Hollywood movie star.
Kerry Washington has enjoyed a successful acting career
Actress Kerry Washington has become one of the most sought of actresses in Hollywood over the years, enjoying a very successful career along the way. However, Kerry has admitted that her mother tried to convince her that she would be better suited to another career, as she did not want to see Kerry as a struggling actress.
Washington was speaking with Stylist magazine, when she revealed that her parents were, "Terrified! My mother tried to talk me into doing a million other things. She used to say, 'Don't be an actor. Be a lawyer for actors.' I think every parent fears their child will be a starving artist - and with good reason because so many people wind up on that path. I'm very grateful they allowed me to pursue my dreams."

While Kerry Washington managed to prove to her mother that there was a successful career to be had in acting, she does admit that there was a possibility that she was going to give up on her Hollywood dream. Kerry says that she gave herself a set time in acting to make a little money and, if it didn't happen, she would have walked away from it.
Washington added, "I had a really specific plan. I gave myself a year after undergraduate school to see if I could make some money. If it didn't work out I told myself I would go back to graduate or law school. If it didn't work out, I was willing to do other things for work. I wanted to at least give myself a shot, to invest in my own heart and passions. And I'm very lucky I was able to do a movie in that first year ['Our Song' in 2000] because I'm not sure I would've stuck with it otherwise. I'm very grateful that happened."
So there you have it people, never give up on your dreams and, if you believe in your talent enough, just keep on plugging away.
