It was recently revealed how actress Alison Brie was asked to take her top off when she went for her audition for a role in Entourage, which she failed to get, but it seems that this is not actually anything new and that there have been a number of other actresses over the years, who have been asked to wear certain types of clothing or to do some surprising things for their auditions.
Which brings us to actress Emmy Rossum, who is an actress who has a lot of respect among her peers and is a fans favourite with millions of people around the world. Emmy has now opened up about a particular audition she had to attend, admitting that she was very surprised when she was asked to meet with the director, wearing only her bikini.
Rossum revealed, "Even as recently as a year ago, my agent called me and was like, 'I'm so embarrassed to make this call, but there's a big movie and they're going to offer it to you. They really love your work on the show. But the director wants you to come into his office in a bikini. There's no audition. That's all you have to do.' He wanted to know if I was fat now. That was basically the question."
She added, "And I actually had this moment like, 'Well, how good is the part?' For a second, I was like, 'Would I do it? Send me the script. Maybe the character is in a bikini in the movie.' [There was] not in a bikini in the movie. Not naked in the movie. 'We really love your work, but we just want to see how tight your ass is.' Are you f***ing kidding me? Last time I checked, I'm not a f***ing model."
Emmy Rossum is an actress who is always fighting for that equality with her male co-stars, so for someone like her to even consider doing it, it makes you wonder just what some of the lesser known and more desperate actresses are willing to do to bag a big role.
