Today, I was cast as beast in my high school's production of Beauty and the Beast. My Grandma's input? "At least they won't need any makeup." FML

Maybe they cast you as the beast because at the end he turns into a super handsome human again :]

Wrath of the grandparents strikes again!

Yeah. I hate it when grandma's have a sense of humor.

Really? You have the intelligence of a chicken mcnugget.

I wish my grandma had a sense of humor, OP is lucky.

Yeah I too think she was just pullin your chain. Don't take it too seriously, the beast turns into a hot prince at the end! :) On the upside, CONGRATS! My schools doing that next year and I reeeeeaaally want to get the part of Belle

Apparently, grandparents have no filters anymore. Sorry OP.

^they usually don't have filters by that age. Biologically, each person is born with a set number of ***** to give throughout life. By the time they're over 65, they've simply run out of *****, and go through the "smartass geriatric" stage until they die. The two great quests of science are to make "artificial *****". (That, and cures for cancer). That way, people can live longer, and be less bitter while alive.

I must be the only FML user to have nice grandparents.

That, or your grandparents haven't reached their "no ***** given" stage quite yet.

Well at least you don't have to sit in a chair for an hour for makeup ;).

He should dress as the beast from X-men and add a new twist to the stale old fairytale.

When I read the first line of the FML I thought it WAS Beast from X-men. A shame it wasn't.

As a theatre person I know that getting a lead is huge (no matter what they may look like) because it means you're talented enough to pull it off. So don't sweat it OP! I've only ever had one lead (Hermione Granger in a Harry Potter musical) and even if you're the beast, it just means you're good enough to be a star.

Just rub it off and make sure she has been invited to the play, if she doesnt go then forget her, if she does, then in the end its all that matters.

What does inviting her to the play solve? She insulted OP's looks, not the play itself.

This could become a big thing, you could get so many parts as a werewolf, you've got things going for you

As people always say, there's no pleasing grandparents. At least act your heart out onstage and make it the best Beast anyone's ever seen.

I feel ya my grandparents are exactly like that. I actually get a good laugh out of it you just have to learn how to live with it. and I'm pretty sure they were joking

I'm sure she was just kidding. Congratulations on getting the role!
