The 36-year-old former Suits actress, who is set to wed Prince Harry on May 19, has attracted attention after sources for the Mail Online revealed she used to let off steam by writing the blog ‘The Working Actress’ under a pseudonym for two years.
In ‘The Working Actress’ diary, which was active from 2010 to 2012, she apparently revealed how tough the industry could be and also criticised producers, who she claimed would often toss in a ‘kissing scene for no apparent reason’ and make her wear next to nothing.
‘I’ve had to freeze my acting union membership, borrow money, work jobs that I hated, endure being treated like s***, kiss actors with smelly breath and cry for hours on end because I just didn’t think I could take it anymore,’ she allegedly wrote.
Mail Online claimed ‘impeccable sources’ had confirmed the blog was from Ms Markle, with one of them adding: ‘The Working Actress persona was like a therapy for her. ‘It allowed her to lay bare her struggles and also call out to some industry people while remaining anonymous. She really wrote it in her own voice.’ ‘I think this shows a side of Meghan people might not expect. It is not the image she likes to portray.’
As well as revealing her struggles in Hollywood, Meghan also displayed a cheeky sense of humour. In one tweet, the actress teased her blog with the line ‘come and read about the girl with the magical boobs’.
Don’t know if the Queen would approve of that!
Kensington Palace said it would not comment on the blog.
