Funny Feel-Facts, Part II
(by Carmichael Phillips)
Here are 5 more feel-facts about acting I’ve uncovered. Part 1 of my Feel-Facts series brought some laughs and inflamed some tensions, so I thought I’d toss out a few more to piss off even more people. I mean, like, what the hell?
Remember, the dictionary defines a fact as:
“Fact: /fakt/ noun: A thing that is known or proved to be true”
A “feel-fact” is slightly different. A feel-fact is not proved to be true, because it doesn’t have to be proven. A feel-fact can be true as long as it feels like it’s true.
That’s right. In the world of feel-facts, a fact need only to feel true in order to be true!
In the acting world, there are many feel-facts. Here are a few more feel facts that we can’t prove, but damn it, they just feel good to say out loud, so they must be true!

#5 Inappropriate Scene-Stealing Should Be a Crime
Scene-stealing, when it’s deliberate and inappropriate, should be a crime, punishable by death. Unless, of course, you get to be the thief, rather than the victim!
No, seriously, all deliberate scene-stealers suck!
Sorry, not sorry, if this ruffles a few feathers. This is just a rant; an opportunity to say what some people are afraid to say aloud.
Hang on to your seats. Part 3 will be off the charts!
