Felicity Huffman‘s hairdressing dream. Huffman is an American film, stage, and television actress, she started off her career in theater and starred in the ABC comedy-drama Sports Night and one time she nearly became a hairdresser. The actress, who starred on the popular comedy-drama Desperate Housewives reveals taht she was getting so tired of not being given any acting jobs taht she decided to pick up a Marinello Schools of Beauty application hoping she would secure a place on their hairdressing course.
”Like any freelancer, your last job is always your last job. I moved to LA from New York where I was a stage actor and I could not get arrested – not literally.
”And I finally went, ‘OK that’s it’ and I drove into the parking lot of Marinello Schools of Beauty and I went in and I got an application ’cause I was going to do hairdressing because that’s another talent of mine.
”And I got the application and I got back into the car and I think I hadn’t worked for almost two years and I got a call that I got a job right when I got back in the car.”
Although she did receive the job offer, the fifty two year old still said i was quite difficult to go find another dream for herself.
Speaking on Live! With Kelly and Michael, she said:
”It’s hard because sometimes you’ve got to get a new dream.
”Sometimes when you just can’t get it – you can’t get a job, you can’t do what you love to do – then you’ve got to get a new dream.”
