Chapter 31: Hathaway’s Confidence
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
After returning to Los Angeles from New York yesterday, it was already past ten o’clock at night, so she naturally went to bed late.
Hathaway had already gotten up at seven o’clock.
Like all celebrities, Hathaway relied on her face for a living.
As a gorgeous beauty, in order to maintain her figure and take care of herself, she had to do exercises and make-up in addition to skin care.
It was necessary to have a regular schedule.
After putting on some light make-up, Hathaway returned to the entertainment company.
As a C-list star, she had some privileges. She didn’t need to clock in at the company.
When she returned to the company, her manager asked her to come back.
After greeting a few familiar people, Hathaway walked to the door of her manager’s office, and it was opened.
Daphne came out of the office.
She was an A-list movie star and also a singer. She was Hathaway’s manager’s number one signed artist.
Recently, the company had spared no effort to invest in her,
There was no lack of movie contracts and advertising concerts.
“Daphne, I will follow up on this movie contract as soon as possible. I will definitely get the highest pay!”
Usually, she liked to act high and mighty in front of Hathaway, but she had a completely different attitude towards Daphne, an A-list movie star.
Hathaway also smiled. She couldn’t be envious of other people’s achievements.
Including her manager, Kate, more than half of the people in the company had to call Daphne big sister!
In the entertainment industry, especially in the acting world, seniority wasn’t determined by age and seniority.
It was only based on popularity!
Hathaway could only secretly envy Daphne.
After all, Daphne was a capable person.
If Hathaway could bring more than 30 million dollars in profit to the company every year, everyone in the company would politely address Hathaway as “big sister”.
Now, Hathaway naturally couldn’t be compared to Daphne.
When the other party walked past her, she didn’t even look at her.
After Kate’s manager sent Daphne away, her face immediately became gloomy. She looked at Hathaway coldly and said, “Come in!”
Back in the office, Kate didn’t let Hathaway sit down.
“Where did you go yesterday? Why didn’t you answer your phone or text me back?”
Hathaway said apologetically, “I went to New York yesterday because my car arrived. I left my phone at my best friend’s house, and I forgot to bring it out.”
On the surface, the celebrities were responsible for doing the work well and receiving the payment, while the managers were responsible for seeking out roles. After that, they would take a cut of the celebrities’ pay. The relationship between the two was equal.
But in reality, as long as they were working together, there would definitely be an alpha and a beta.
It was very obvious.
Hathaway was the beta in front of Kate.
In front of a small C-list celebrity like Hathaway, Kate had always been absolutely dominant.
The reason was very simple. After all, the other party was only a small C-list celebrity!
There was no need for her to pay attention to her!
Kate coldly said, “If every celebrity was like you, how would us managers accept contracts?”
Hathaway didn’t dare to speak loudly, “Sorry, it won’t happen again.”
Kate coldly threw a document to Hathaway, “Red Valley Film Productions recently wants to raise funds to shoot a big investment film. This is the contract I got for you!”
“Although your role is the fourth female supporting role, the number of lines and roads won’t be few. There is no need for an audition, and the pay isn’t bad. After tax, it’s 100,000 dollars!”
Hathaway was overjoyed. She didn’t expect that there would be a movie to shoot so soon.
Although it was just a supporting role, it didn’t have much weight.
However, for a newcomer, this was already a pretty good role, not to mention the 100,000 dollars!
The last two TV series she shot took half a year, and the pay was only 150,000 dollars.
“Thank you, Kate!”
Hathaway was about to pick up the document, but Kate suddenly said in a low voice, “Wait!”
“This contract is really good. I invited the director and producer of this movie to have a meal with us as a way to thank them for giving you this opportunity.”
“You go with me.”
Hathaway hesitated for a moment, but finally gritted her teeth and said, “Sister Kate, I have something to do tonight. Why don’t we talk about it another time?”
Kate’s face darkened, and her voice became extremely stern. “Hathaway, how many times have you used this excuse? I’m telling you, this is your last chance!”
“There is a price to pay in this line of work. Today, I’ll make it clear that the director has taken a liking to you. As long as you accompany them for a meal today and serve them well tonight, you’ll be able to get this role!”
“There will be more opportunities in the future. There’s even the possibility of using this movie to become famous overnight. This is a big production with an investment of 100 million US dollars!”
“If you don’t go today, I’ll cancel our contract. No manager will be willing to sign an artist like you in the future!”
Hathaway’s expression immediately turned ugly.
Kate’s threat definitely wasn’t all bluff.
She had already made it clear. As a veteran manager in the entertainment industry, Kate had a lot of connections.
It could be said that half of the entertainment industry had to yield to her.
If she really spoke, most of the managers would give her face.
In the past, there was a rookie who didn’t listen to Kate and insisted on terminating her contract.
Kate decisively sued the rookie for a huge compensation. She had to obediently obey Kate’s arrangements because she couldn’t afford to pay the huge compensation.
Hathaway also heard that in the end, this rookie was arranged by Kate to sleep with twelve investors at the same time.
She paid such a huge price, but in the end, she only got a role that didn’t even have a line. In the end, the rookie couldn’t bear the pressure and went crazy.
Celebrities definitely weren’t as glamorous as they looked.
In reality, people didn’t know what kind of price they had paid!
Kate’s gaze was sharp as she stared at Hathaway.
She believed that as long as she threatened to terminate the contract, a C-list actress like Hathaway definitely wouldn’t be able to bear the pressure!
In the end, all of them would be played by the investors!
She didn’t know how many times she had tried this trick, and there was almost no time when she failed!Read latest Chapters at wuxiamobile.com Only
There were at least 50 C-list celebrities, and she had dealt with them in this way.
Probably tonight, the producer and director would be able to enjoy this beauty who looked pure on the outside yet had a sexy figure!
Unexpectedly, Hathaway hesitated for a moment, and her gaze became resolute.
“I’m sorry, I really have something to do tonight!”
