hand job

extra! extra!  read all about it!

so last week when i got a call from casting to be in Grown Ups 2,  i naturally assumed they were calling to cast me as salma hayek's hand double.  i meaaan, they did want 25 year old BEAUTIFUL hispanic hands, so, obvs, i had a good shot at this.



the good news: i won't have to uproot my entire family and move to hollywood to be salma's hand model for the next decade or so.
bad news: i didn't get a chance to ask salma for my body back.

{bitch totes stole my body}

on another positive note - my chances of winding up like this creepster lady have been drastically reduced.





i did however get to experience a day in the glorious life of a movie extra, specifically as 'street atmosphere'.  and i'm not gonna lie, i totes nailed it.  i walked down the street with the best of 'em.

i'll spare you all of the gory deets of my 14 hour and 12 minute stint but i'll share just a couple of highlights . . .

at the arrival at base camp at 6:30 am
{cue the 'hooray for hollywood'. . . }




a few of us were told our outfits weren't "walmart" enough and had to head to the wardrobe trailer.




and here i am in extras holding.  there was dry wall and folding chairs, and a lot of  my really enthusiastic 'co-stars'.  {they were actually really great, all things considered}



holla!

forreals tho, i did get to meet a lot of fun peeps AND i was in a movie scene with kevin james, adam sandler, chris rock, shaq attack, and david spade.  which was really fun.  {not allowed to post pics from that part.  womp womp.}

and it was quite the departure from my "normal" life.   but normal life seems pretty good today.  observation : i think being in show biz might be exhausting and not so worth it unless you get paid a bazillion dollahs.  {or at least enough to cover the cost of the sitter.  doh!}

it was fun while it lasted.

hey salma, i guess you can borrow my body until august but i'm going to have to get it back before you leave.
