[man] Didn't see you

here last Friday.


No, but I loved the place.

- Friday...

- I know.

Here you go, ladies.

All right, so we got you

your director-approved apron.

Yeah, yeah.

I like the small better.

So, I saw his abs.

- Seriously?

- Yeah.

Yeah. He just ripped his shirt

off right in front of me.

Abs for days.

[woman] What did you do?

Well, I did

what any girl would do.

I just refrained from asking him

to take a selfie with me

for my Instapics.

And you? Are you gonna be able to

handle looking him in the eyes

without stumbling

over your lines?

I think I'll manage.

I mean, he's just a person

like everyone else, right?

[women] Right.

We're ready for her.

Let's go, Clare.

It's Clarissa.

Go, go, go.

Let's go.

I need everyone at their ones!

Okay, guys, quiet on set!

We're gonna roll for rehearsal.


All right. Scene 101 A,

take one:
Coffee Shop Crush.

And action.


I didn't see you last Friday.

Or the Friday before,

but you were here...

[both] three Fridays ago.

I was visiting my mom

in San Fran.

Aw, that's sweet.

[man] I thought I'd

never see you again.

[woman] Well, I'm here now.

Let me buy you a cup of coffee.

Can I get you anything else?

Think I've got everything I need

right here in front of me.

[all exclaiming]

Oh, my God. Oh, my God.

I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry!


Um... No.

I didn't know the lid wasn't...

Don't sweat it.

Wardrobe has doubles.

Wardrobe has doubles.

Yeah. You, come with me.

Clarissa, honey, you always

gotta check your props.

I know. I made

a complete fool of myself

in front of two of the hottest up-and-coming

actors in Hollywood right now.

Oh! Oh, please!

Honey, Stella is

a notorious diva.

It was probably her bad karma that

caused it to happen in the first place.

And Chas, he's all sexy

soap-appeal, no brains above.

I doubt he'd remember you

if he saw you.

Jeannette, I know how hard you

worked to get me that audition.

Forget it. Okay?

You still got paid, and we'll

keep it on your headshot

until we book you

something better.

Yeah. But what if this small

part led to something bigger?

Clarissa, it was seven lines.

It's not the end of the world

or your career.

You're barely 24.

Yeah. Well, Stella's 24.

So says her publicist.

I'll have you know

that Stella is nearly 30.

And do not compare

yourself to her.

You are a talented actress.

So you're not all

lips and lashes.

But you are beautiful.

You look like

a storybook princess.

And you're vulnerable,

yet you're strong.

Honey, you have star quality,

that's why I signed you.

You're right.

I mean, 'cause if I don't believe

in myself, who will, right?

See? You are a great actress.


Well, even though

you're down on your luck

and you don't believe

a word you just said,

you had me convinced.


All right. You go home,

you get some rest.

And I'm gonna get you out

for a commercial audition

on Friday at two

in Studio City, okay?

I can't. I'm going back home

for a bridal shower, remember?

Yes, you're maid of honor in your

best friend's wedding, right?

The honor is all mine.

All right.

Well, it'll be good for you

to get away. Go have fun!

And, Clarissa...

Life is a movie

if you let it be. I know.

- Okay.

- All right. Go have fun.

- Bye.

- Bye.

Of course I'm coming!

You think I'd miss your bridal shower?

I'm your maid of honor.

Um... About that.


Well, since you don't live here,

and you've been so busy

with your auditions and stuff,

and haven't really been

able to help with planning,

I kind of had
