I mean hes being honest. But in a douchey way; but people who may have more talent than him may want the role. The director.... what was he supposed to say when you asked for sandy's role? FYL but you kind of cornered the director there.

That's your opinion, but turn your perspective upside down and i can guarantee you can find good and beauty in everyone, society sucks at doing this because we all had some bad encounter.

Beauty isn't just in looks. Someone can be unattractive on the outside but be a beautiful person on the inside. This argument doesn't help the girl wanting to act, of course, but in general it's true. Then again, there are some seriously unattractive actors and actresses out there.

Why? Because he didn't want OP in his production? We're assuming then, that OP is a talented actor? We have no proof of this. Sure, the director was harsh, but his job is a difficult one, and in his favour he tried to let OP down gently. When an actor who has been denied a part continues to badger you, when you have other auditions to see, casting to complete, all in a short space of time, I'm not really surprised he snapped and became harsh. As an actor, OP needs to learn to handle rejection anyway. I don't see how this is the directors fault. OP was probably being pushy and wasting time. Sure it's a douche like thing to call someone ugly, but honestly, I can understand why the director may have been frustrated.

gaysunshine, op is a she. rizzo and sandy are female characters. I mean, I could see the potential confusion about op's sex with rizzo, but sandy?

Whats wrong with saying that there are other actors still auditioning and he he would let her know if she got the role. If she then badgered for Sandy he could still say "there are many auditioning". No need to absolutely tear her down. I doubt she was the only woman at the audition. That and even ugly people make the backgrounds of a play. If he awarded the role to someone else no biggie he could tell her that he didn't think she was suited and have a few more lessons. That and who does he think he is? He sounds unprofessional - so a community theatre man. Oo big shot. It's like when I interview people for jobs. I don't tell them I think they are a moron and a waste of flesh. I tell them that they weren't suited for this position and thank them for their time. The end and I haven't torn them to shreds. There is no defending the rudeness of the director.

Sandy can be a boy's name too (short for Alexander). It's an understandable mistake if someone's not familiar with the play or movie.

Im gonna sound like a total douche, but isnt it better that he was honest? Now you can go pursue something you are better at instead of being under the impression youre good at something youre naturally not and being disappointed time and time again when you dont get the roles you want. Honestly hurts op but its better in the long run :)

It would've been better if the director wasn't a dick, and would've just came up with another excuse to not put them in. Nobody wants to hear they're ugly now or later.

As much fun as lying to people about their deficiencies is, someone needs to tell them the truth eventually. If op has the emotional range of Kristen Stewart and the face of Merle Haggard, the role of Rizzo is not for her.

#10 - This is FML. Sarcasm is never quite clear on FML, unless you know the poster. I thought that this was very obviously sarcastic, but why do you think we've been requesting a sarcasm font for so long?

banking on the director being homophobic is a pretty good bet, especially in the united states(I can't see posts location only sex of op on my phone's app)

I'm gonna have to agree with 17. While what the director did do is really shitty, it's a bit far to call him a useless human being. There's a good chance that he's a father and husband to a family and they certainly wouldn't call him useless. Definitely a douche, but not useless.

I'm no actor, but I guess that learning and managing how to deal with rejections is an often needed ability. And if you keep on after such a rude one, you may have managed your acid test.

He sounds like a pretty great director actually. He even tried to let OP off easy which is a lot more than some people in his position would do. I think you should know more about this man before you go around saying things like that. Calling somebody a useless human being is much worse than calling them ugly and untalented.

In a lot of businesses that would be unprofessional. In acting, it's par for the course. This was a local production so he needn't have been so harsh but if you want to be an actor, you'll have to grow a thick skin. Of course, you'll also have to take lessons, practice, and go out for parts that suit your appearance. Steve Buscemi doesn't audition for Brad Pitt roles. Work whatever look you already have.
