What If I Go After My Dream Job? The 25 Club...

I wish it was to be Disney World's Jessica Rabbit but I don't think they have her walking around. Do they? Hmmm I imagine that red dress isn't exactly PG. I wish tho I could be an actress. That is my dream job. I know I know I went to school for Engineering & Mathematics however I always have had that dream of being on the big screen. I used to be in my ex's short comedy skits a long time ago but I doubt that will ever see the outside of his computer.

Last year I went to a modeling agency to see if maybe just maybe I could get a bid for something. I was very disappointed that it wound up being a scam. Thankfully I didn't put any money up for it. If I ever want to do it I'm going to have to be careful. Craigslist isn't always the most honest of places either to look for like a casting call or something but you never know. I'm so close to NYC that I really should take advantage of it. hmmm...this might be a pipe dream but who knows. I'm going to keep my eyes open for that one in a million chance.

In reality tho I should have started years & years ago & be born to movie star parents because that's like THE way to get into show bizz. I'm a lil old for it even at 25 to start. It's okay tho. I can still dream.

However I got curious how many famous stars today are actually ONLY 25 YEARS OLD! Here's what I came up with:

Carey Mulligan
Amanda Seyfried
Kiera Knightley
Raven Symone
Michelle Trachtenberg
Kaley Cuoco

I was shocked that Raven Symone is only 25 & Michelle Trachtenberg. They have been around FOREVER! Did you know these famous ladies were so young?

I gotta finish my work day but I thought it was really cool how much they have all done in so few years. Good for them. Maybe I'll be a star one day...hmmm dreaming...

Diana Mieczan said...

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

Still, I'm sure there are lots of stars that didn't get into acting until later in the game too. There's always a chance!

Kiera Knightley completely shocks me. That means she was only 17 or 18 when she played a wife in Love Actually. Holy cow!

drollgirl said...

25 is so young to me! 25! yeesh! i am a grandma in comparison! and keep hope alive -- you never know what will happen in the future! you could still be a star! :)

Jennifer Fabulous said...

For some reason I always considered Michelle Trachtenberg a LOT younger than me...I thought she was still a teenager. Lol.

And I remember Raven from her Disney show, so I also thought she was a lot younger...

Kiera looks and acts a lot older, so I was surprised by that.

I had no idea so many celebrities were 25!

*Simply Colette* said...

I thought Keira was older too. Wow! follow you dreams melanie!

Kristin said...

Liesl @ FabulousFashions4SensibleStyle said...

bananas. said...

you were shocked that raven's "only" 25 years old?!

i'm shocked that she's even in her 20's!!! call me old but i remember her as a wee one on the cosby show.

Connie @ SogniESorrisi said...

Raven I could have figured because I remember when she was Olivia and we were about the same age...I was a few years older.

Krystal said...

You should def pursue that! And take advantage of nyc for sure!

Cafe Fashionista said...

I knew that Michelle was 25 because I feel as if I grew up with her; and for a time when I was younger, people said I reminded them of her. But Keira?! Wow! I had no clue she was only 25!! :/

Teenage Bride said...

It's so funny seeing these stars in interviews and then realizing that they're in fact much younger! I think most of them must have gotten started in the business when they were just babies.

Bathwater said...

There are a lot of actresses that are 25 or younger. NYC is not a bad place to look for work either.

MissEmy said...

Go for it!! Modeling and acting would be fantastic, i'm sure. :D

Couture Carrie said...

Very talented ladies!

Can't believe they are only 25!

Mo Pie, Please said...

Keira's that young? I thought she was at least my age or older. How surprising!

Şenay Céline said...

I was so shocked at Kiera and Raven! I thought they were older.But these girls especially Keira and Carey are so talented and have accomplished so much despite their young age.I love them.

Jay Ferris said...

It's never to late to start your dreams. Unless your dream was to be ultra famous by the time you turned 24, in which case I suppose it is in fact too late.

That being said, I think it's time for you to get really serious about it. Show us something! Film a 10 second short and post it on this blog in the next week. I mean, it's only 10 seconds -- surely you can make 10 seconds happen! Do it!

MJ said...

Shame about the modelling thing - you have to be so careful with those!

nesha said...

there are so many model agency scams that i've heard of! I just read of one the other day in an magazine and I was shocked. It's such a shame, and it crushes the hopes and dreams of the person who hoped to be a model :(:(

Katy Mary said...

wow so many young ladies! makes me super jealous. try modelmayhem.com for casting calls and such.

Rachel Cotterill said...

I'm a computer science PhD student but it would be my dream job if my writing career (which is currently "pocket money") took off... we can dream :)

Meghan said...

Girl, I think you should totally go for it!

Len♥reNeverM♥re said...

Oh darling, keep your hope & dream ALIVE! Raven is 25 already!!!
It seems like not too long ago that I watched her cuteness with Cosbys!

xo

giaghani said...

Wow, I also thought Kiera was much older then merely 25. But I think you should still go after it! It may seem like its late, but maybe you could consider some acting gigs for plays in your area? build up from there!

I was think a dream is worth the chance :)

xoxo

Hearthandmade said...

Kallie, Happy Honey and Lark said...

They are so young, and yet I feel so old! I loved Amanda Bynes because she was my age and I could relate to her.
