Jennifer Esposito's
Brutally Bleak
Thoughts On Acting
Jennifer Esposito is an experienced actress; aside from "NCIS," she is known for her work in "Spin City" and "The Affair.” However, in a 2019 interview, she shared her thoughts about acting and they were surprisingly brutal and bleak.
Esposito feels that acting is a less creative endeavor than she thought it would be and a very self-obsessive job. Esposito said, "I often question, 'what the hell am I doing?'" She would further explain that her experience with acting and the entertainment industry is heavily appearance-focused and self-centered.
Esposito stated that the heightened emphasis on makeup, hair, and clothing, made her feel that she had no other option but to get in line with that environment to be successful. She further confessed that she often feels unfulfilled in many roles that she takes on, with only a few allowing her to have a creative experience. Esposito continues to act to this day — hopefully in roles that leave her more fulfilled.
