Actress Kerry Washington quickly learned to ignore negative comments about her appearance when she started out in the movie business, after one agent told her to drastically change her appearance.
The Ray star refused to model a skinny frame and alter her teeth, and quickly found representation that agreed with her.
She says, "When I first started meeting with agents, I remember one telling me all the things I had to change - I'd have to have my teeth fixed, lose weight.
"Then I met with another agent two weeks later who was like, 'You're perfect - let's start.' That's a good rule to follow - go where the love is."
