He says I need to keeping contact places with tons of emails to get what I want with telling them my specifics. I never heard this b4. Is this true thst I need to be a diva to get what I want in entertainment?

    That's laughable. Whoever told you that is an idiot.

  • I think you have to be more assertive and confident (but don't be too over confident), then aggressive and annoying. If you start acting like an annoying diva you will earn a reputation for being one, which no one really likes.

    If you are annoying and aggressive at the start of your career, you will soon gain a reputation for being a right pain in the rear end and work will dry up. You need to be resilient and confident, but also being a nice person will get you further than being nasty.

    I can't speak for the modelling industry, but if you want to get into acting, make sure that you have good training as that will begin your journey to making the right contacts. Just emailing agencies for acting will get you nowhere if you don't have the experience. There are thousands of fully trained and experienced actors in the line way ahead of you, so they are more likely to be employed before someone with no training. With modelling, make sure you find a legitimate agency - not one who will take money off you for "training". If you have the right look, you might get an agent. If you don't, you will have to accept that you may be attractive, but not what they are looking for.

    I'm old school and still think charm and looking

    Nice like Audrey Hepburn did gets the most

    Fans to your films. It's all about looking into

    The camera and acting like your talking to

    A very good friend or someone you care

    About. That was the way she acted so well

    And got hired to be in lots of movies that

    Made her over 100 million dollars. She could

    Have made more but she correctly chose

    To get out of acting and spend more time

    With her children while they grew up. Money

    Can't give you that life experience back if

    You mis it. Kids are only young and playful

    And cute for a few years and need a good

    Mom to guide then into adulthood. Good

    Luck
