By this point, we all know that working in Hollywood isn't always glamorous, even for successful stars.
Diane Kruger recently offered further proof by sharing the story of her worst audition. The actress sat down with "Downsizing" star Hong Chau for Variety's "Actors on Actors" series, and they swapped war stories. Both recounted their worst auditions, describing them as "disrespectful" and "terrible" experiences, respectively. In fact, Kruger was so put off by hers that she didn't even make it all the way through before walking out.
Kruger recalled how she'd had to memorize some 15 pages of dialogue to prepare, but when she started showing what she could do, the director -- whom she left unnamed -- took a call. He then told her to start over, without even apologizing, she said. It got worse, though. Not only had he not turned off his phone, he took two more calls in the midst of her audition, finally angering Kruger to the point that she decided she was done.
"I didn't even let him answer it," she said of the final call. "I just, like, got my stuff and left. That's so disrespectful, right?"
Chau shared a story of her own, remembering how her worst experiences came early in her career and left her with a "feeling of humiliation." In particular, she recalled being at a commercial audition and asking a question, only to have the man running the audition scold her for not raising her hand before speaking. Eesh.

The second half of "Fuller House" Season 3 is almost here, and it will bring more of some of our favorite things: hugs, cute babies with dogs, and Tanner-Fuller family adventures.
Netflix released the trailer Monday, and it promises Season 3B will "blow your mind." Along with the aforementioned hugs and baby-dog combo, it shows what D.J. (Candace Cameron Bure), Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin), and Kimmy (Andrea Barber), and the others will be up to. The trio is shown getting tattoos, and that is just the start of it.
From what we can tell, D.J.'s love triangle will only get more complicated; the preview shows Steve (Scott Weinger) wondering about what might have been as her wedding approaches. Meanwhile, Stephanie still has pregnancy on the brain, and Kimmy tells her that her own oven is "preheated and easy bake." We can also expect appearances from more members of the original "Full House" family, including Danny (Bob Saget), Jesse (John Stamos), Becky (Lori Loughlin), and Joey (Dave Coulier).
"Fuller House" Season 3B hits Netflix on Dec. 22.

The YouTube channel's latest video gives the popular show the overdubbing treatment, completely changing the story and even its feel by replacing the characters' lines with new ones that still match up with their mouth movements. "Love" star Gillian Jacobs helps make it happen, taking over the voice of Nancy Wheeler. As a result, "Stranger Things" goes from being an '80s-inspired sci-fi horror series to more of a comedy-drama -- and a very strange one at that.
In the video, the familiar characters have new interests, struggles, and goals. Wheeler family dinners become discussions about talent shows and tattoos, for example. Additionally, the boys rehearse a one-act play and get into trouble in new ways. It's Hawkins like you've never seen it before.
Watch the video below; it's 18 minutes long, so you'll have to be prepared to devote some time to it.
Seasons 1 and 2 of the real "Stranger Things" are available on Netflix.

Red alert: This movie already looks amazing.
Margot Robbie and Saoirse Ronan are competing against each other this awards season, in "I, Tonya" and "Lady Bird," respectively. After that, the actresses will bring their talents to a different kind of rivalry -- that of Queen of Scots Mary Stuart (Ronan) and Queen Elizabeth I (Robbie) in "Mary, Queen of Scots."
The historical drama -- written by "House of Cards" creator Beau Willimon and directed by theater director Josie Rourke -- opens November 2, 2018. The script is based on John Guy's biography, "My Heart Is My Own: The Life of Mary Queen of Scots."
Entertainment Weekly shared the first look photos of the rival 16th Century cousins:
Saoirse Ronan's red-gold hair! It practically glows.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Mary, Queen of Scots" follows Ronan's Mary, who was taken to France as a child and betrothed to King Henry II's eldest son, Francis. When Francis died just a year after being crowned king, Mary returned to Scotland in an attempt to regain favor with her cousin, England's Queen Elizabeth.
"Everyone manipulated their relationship," Robbie told EW. "It's complicated, it's tragic, and it's bizarre. The only other person in the world who could understand the position they were in was each other."
"Mary, Queen of Scots" -- costarring David Tennant, Jack Lowden, Martin Compston, Joe Alwyn, and Brendan Coyle -- arrives in theaters Nov. 2, 2018.

That's the bad news from David Harbour, but there's good news, too!
"Stranger Things" just picked up a couple of Golden Globe nominations for Season 2, including a nod for David Harbour as Chief Hopper. He's nominated in the long-winded category called Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television. The series itself is also nominated for Best Television Series - Drama.
Harbour reacted with a statement, and a promise to dance if he wins:
I'll do the dance, Bea.😏 https://t.co/9oqtX2M1iA— David Harbour (@DavidKHarbour) December 11, 2017
Millie Bobby Brown (Jane/Eleven) supported her on-screen "dad":
Those nominations are for Season 2, which came out in October. Season 1 came out the year before, in July. Instead of getting Season 3 in October of 2018, as hoped, it sounds like the wait may be longer.
That's what Harbour hinted to Variety, referencing the Duffer Brothers' work process:
"I mean, one of the things that's annoying for fans is that it takes us a long time to do them. Like, you probably won't get [Season 3] until sometime in 2019. But also part of the thing is, like any good thing, they need time. And those guys work so hard. I mean, they just sit in their apartment and write for 12, 14 hours a day."
The Duffer Brothers already plan to run "Stranger Things" for at least four seasons on Netflix. So they know where the story is going, they just aren't the fastest writers. That's OK, it just makes our 2018 a little less exciting on the TV/streaming front, especially since "Game of Thrones" Season 8 isn't expected until 2019 either. On the upside, way to go 2019! You're already slaying.
The "Stranger Things" producers and Duffers themselves have yet to weigh in, so we may be pleasantly surprised to see Season 3 show up next year anyway. Fingers crossed.
Meanwhile, root for Harbour to win his Golden Globe and dance for your pleasure, when the Globes air January 7, 2018 at 8 p.m. EST on NBC. (Don't get too excited, though. Alexander Skarsgard is most likely to take that category.)

Or, rather, "Steven Spielberg" responded.
Kumail Nanjiani co-wrote and starred in the romantic comedy "The Big Sick," which is based on how he met his real-life wife, Emily V. Gordon. It was one of the most egregious snubs of the 2018 Golden Globe Award nominations, which just came out this morning. Steven Spielberg's "The Post," on the other hand, was one of the top nominees.
Proving that he and his film really belonged in that comedy category, Nanjiani followed the nominations by tweeting a plug for his snubbed movie -- *and* creating a new Steven Spielberg meme in the process:
Hey gang. This is Steven Spielberg tweeting from Kumail's phone. My fave movie this yr was The Big Sick. It's avail on Amazon Prime & iTunes & all that. Great movie to watch w the fam. I watched it w my family (the Spielbergs) & we all loved it. Handing phone back to Kumail now.— Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) December 11, 2017
Hey @DEADLINE, Steven Spielberg tweeted that! I'll give the phone back to him.— Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) December 11, 2017
This is Steven (Spielberg.) I tweeted that. I directed Jaws, ET, BFG. See? I can name 3 of my films. It has to be me. Lincoln. That's 4. That's enough proof for you to retract.https://t.co/Ck2BQMgu9j
Omg. You should be ashamed. Here I'll give the phone back to Steven Spielberg.— Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) December 11, 2017
Mike, Steve(n Spielberg) here. Big fan of your work. Not a fan of you calling me a liar. I Always tell the truth. I challenge you to a Duel. Or we can argue & have a real War of the Wor(l)ds! Lincoln. https://t.co/mvtoMgKimd
You know who loved that gag? "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" director Rian Johnson, who pulled his own Spielberg:
Ok this is Kumail tweeting from Rian's phone- Steven Spielberg stole my phone, he fake-handed it back to me then ran off. If anyone has eyes on Steven Spielberg please tell him I'm not mad I just want my phone back it has wedding pictures on it. Also go see the last jedi on 12/15— Rian Johnson (@rianjohnson) December 11, 2017
Rian! I forgot to return your phone to you! Shoot! Only option we have now is for me to come over to your house and return it and watch Star Wars: The Last Jedi with you early before it comes out 12/15 in theaters everywhere. (I logged into my twitter on your phone to do this.)— Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) December 11, 2017
Yes! More fans and friends had fun with ... shall we call it Spielberg-ing?:
Kumail, it was great running into you and Steven Spielberg, who was definitely with you. Here's that photo I took of him using your phone to tweet. Sorry my friend Rihanna was blocking you in the pic. http://pic.twitter.com/Tyt6oMSQP2— Brian Lynch (@BrianLynch) December 11, 2017
I am passing Steven Spielberg my phone. "To further prove I tweeted from Kumail's phone, I want to sincerely apologize for A.I." He handed phone back to me. I think that settles the matter.— Ron Waxman (@RonWaxman) December 11, 2017
Steven asked Kumail to not share their selfie, but I snapped this picture of it. http://pic.twitter.com/4SyIM2ROLv— Brett (@IdealGasLaw) December 11, 2017
Hey bill collectors. This is Steven Spielberg tweeting from Faith's phone. Stop calling Faith asking for student loans & all that. My family (the Spielbergs) thinks Faith should get a 5 year deferment because this comedy thing is blowing up soon. Handing phone back to Faith now.— Faith Choyce (@faithchoyce) December 11, 2017
This is Steven Spielberg tweeting from Danielle's phone telling all media companies to pay her any outstanding invoices before the end of the month. Ok giving the phone back to Danielle now.— Danielle Sepulveres (@ellesep) December 11, 2017
Hey gang. This is Steven Spielberg tweeting from Tim's phone. My favorite person in the world other than my family (the Spielbergs). He is looking for work in the TV and film industry and all that. He's such a swell guy! Anyways, I gotta go. Handing the phone back to Tim now! L8!— cafè (@timbrownies) December 11, 2017
Steven Spielberg should find a way to reference all of this at the Golden Globes -- or the Oscars, if "The Big Sick" gets a nod there.
Spielberg directed "The Post," which earned him a best director Golden Globe nod. Here's what he did say (via THR) in reaction to that film's nominations:
"I am thrilled by today's recognition by the HFPA and particularly happy for our nominees who made this movie happen —Meryl and Tom, Liz Hannah and Josh Singer, Amy Pascal and Kristie Macosko Krieger, and of course, John Williams. I only wish Kay Graham were still here to experience how much her story affects all of us."
As "Steven" noted, "The Big Sick" is now available on digital, streaming, and disc. "The Post" opens December 22.
