Check out my new blog post entitled Some people should keep their advice to themselves...

Tell me what you think.

I think you read far too much into the advice. You go so far as to suggest a racist inspiration for the comment.

Yeah, I'm sure that's what Ms. Cusack meant, that blacks should not be in films. Get a grip, huh?

Maybe she was talking about the industry itself, not about the young, beginning actress. Show business, including the movies, is a very tough career field.

We only have a second hand account of the exchange. It is not beyond the realm of possibility that the remark was made as a joke - Joan Cusack hardly fitting the idealized Hollywood image of a female star.

Have you never heard nor seen someone advising a newcomer to any business "Get out now while you can. this business will kill you." or words to that effect?

Acting is easy. Making a living acting is extremely difficult.

Your article is contradictory to me. You say "Rejection and hurt are part of life." in an article complaining that a person didn't keep to herself a comment that that you suggest could be taken as rejecting or hurtful and suggesting that others should not make comments or give advice that might be discouraging.

Some years ago a friend of mine said he was thinking of going into air traffic controlling. I said he was nuts and didn't have a chance. My significant other at the time took me to task for discouraging the fellow. He was a high school graduate who had made C & D grades and had been a significant user of "soft" drugs for two decades. Perhaps I should have advised him to follow his "pipe" dream; I don't think so.

My latest novel Rebuke is now available online at Amazon & Barnes and Noble!

Forget everything you think you know about preacher and his family. Become privy to the inner sanctum, see their tears, their fears, and the demons that drive them. Then open not only your eyes, but your heart as well.
