15 Unhinged Reasons Celebrities Were Given for Why They'd Never Make It
Everyone loves a good underdog story, and in Hollywood there are plenty of them. Here are 15 celebs who faced rejection early on in their careers, but eventually overcame it to become some of the most successful in the industry.
For example, Judi Dench is an Oscar-nominated actress who has been in some of the biggest films over the past few decades. She started her career back in 1957, and was quickly met with sexism. A director told her she'd never make it because of her "wrong face." Clearly, he was wrong and Judi went on to have a hugely successful career.
Or let’s take Sydney Sweeney, who is another actress having a moment right now. You may have seen her recently on shows like Euphoria and The Handmaid's Tale. But things could have gone very differently for Sydney - when she first started out trying to break into television, one casting director told her she would "never" be on TV because of how she looked. Clearly, well, that wasn't true either as Sydney has landed some major roles lately.
