Thandie Newton did not timidly talk of the abuse and embarrassment of her early career auditions. As a teenager, after the first step of casting, Newton has already been caught at a “casting couch” audition. 

The pursuit of happiness actress told CNN about the event while promoting the One Billion Rising sexual violence awareness initiative. “The director instructed me to sit apart with my thighs. The monitor was placed right where my skirt could be seen.”

She explained how the director told her to “place my leg on the arm of the chair, and before I began a dialogue, reflect on the character I was meant to have a dialogue with, and on how that person felt loved.”

Nobody will ever persuade us to be committed to Lea Michele. Just before her decisive audition as Glee’s lead star, Michele went into a critical car crash outside the casting studio. 

The accident may have totalized her car, but Michele took part as usual in the audition company. “I have a huge car wreck outside the Fox lot—totaling my car,” she admitted in a Season 1 DVD featurette. “Literally, when I entered the room for my audition, I already pulled glass bits out of my hair. They’re like, “Are you all right?” I’m like, ‘I’m all good!'”
