Gary Ross visited the USC campus earlier today to deliver the commencement address to the university’s School of Theatre graduates. Deadline Hollywood reports that while Ross was not feeling well, he still had an important message for the graduates.
Nursing a cold, Ross enthusiastically urged the class to “live life fully.” At the same time, the director warned the 2012 grad class that he wasn’t going to “sugarcoat” the years of struggle they would likely have ahead as actors. Ross told the students that even if they found success in “the churning industry of global media” to always remember that “people who want to be stars get their teeth capped. People who want to be actors go to work.”
