JULIANNA MARGULIES OPENS UP ABOUT SELF-ACCEPTANCE IN THE INDUSTRY

July 2, 2018

The Good Wife’s Julianna Margulies didn’t always have it so good!

The star of AMC’s series Dietland recently opened up to People Magazine about her self-acceptance issues. These issues stemmed from comments made by casting directors about her unique look.

“When I first started out, I was told by numerous casting directors that I would never work in television — that my look was too different. They didn’t know if I was part Black, part Hispanic, was I Greek, was I a Puerto Rican. That was the feedback after every audition.”


She credits her role as Nurse Carol Hathoway E.R. for helping jumpstart her confidence.

“It was sort of a miracle the ER happened to me because I think it was that same year that I was told I’d do better off in Europe because they’re more accepting. That was 1994, so it was a long time ago and I know things have changed dramatically but not drastically enough. I think we’re seeing that now. I think we’re seeing it with women being able to be the leads in film and in television. The landscape is changing but I definitely think that it’s not just in the business, I think it’s how we view ourselves as women in the world.”

To more diversity and acceptance!
