#hollywoodassistants Tumblr: These assistants tell it like it is

Posted on

Ever fantasized about working for a big-time Hollywood producer/agent/actor? There have probably been enough movies, airport novels, musicals, and tell-all blogs about the high-pressure drama of working in this town, but a new Hollywood Assistants Tumblr of animated gifs sets the record straight.

From the struggle with bosses who can’t print their own call sheets (cue a Gossip Girl reference), to asking for time off in vain (Adele on Graham Norton gives a big ‘no!’), to the little triumphs of a client getting hired or the notoriously quiet month of December, the #hollywoodassistants Tumblr takes you through a day in the life of the lowly Hollywood help.

All joking aside, those types of Hollywood jobs aren’t easy to get — but they are easy to lose. If the prankster is actually an assistant, how long will this Tumblr survive? Make your best guesses in the comments below.
