But when I lived in Chicago, which is not exactly like a hub of showbiz, but they do a lot of commercials there. Yeah, that's true. But they do a lot of commercials, so I had, like, a kind of a commercial agent, and they would send you out, like on whatever. And I was probably 1920 maybe 21 like, very young. And this me out for a WalMart commercial where I was supposed to be like a mother of four. And I got there and it was like, e was truly, like, 21 years old on when I got there. It was like all women, probably like, maybe in their forties. But with my body type on, I was like, Oh, okay, okay. See what's happening here. Um, you think that because my body I look like I might be a 40 year old labor labored, popped out like four Children or whatever. So it was a very cool moment for me where I was like, Oh, I actually hate this so much. Oh, my dreams involve something I truly love. Yeah, I had I briefly, I think I maybe went on when I lived in l A years ago and I I guess I don't know. Maybe I was around like 30.

Nothing. This is a bad thing. A room of the most Jewish looking people e no, it was literally like the like upstairs section on Orthodox synagogue were there just like clearly saying outs Minnick brown haired ethnic white ladies to play a best friend It was always to play a best jui best friend. I mean, I have auditioned for so many nervous assistance. It would chill you to your bone. It would rock you to your core. I'm rocked and it would always be like like Cameron Diaz or Anne Hathaway's like nervous but well meaning assistant. Excuse me, E. I love you and I wanna help you, but im e a perfect. That is a great like I love you, but I e understand why I'm sent out for those roles. Because it is my essence in some ways where I'm like, I wanna help e be of service. Samantha E. That's it. Well, it's a good It is a very funny vibe, but I think you could do so much more. Thank you so much. Um, totally welcome holding.
