Meghan Markle FAILS Hollywood Test: ‘Coddled Under-Performer’
Meghan Markle just made another attempt at conquering Hollywood. But her Tinsel Town test, albeit worthy of a big-time Hollywood player, failed.
Find out exactly what the Duchess of Sussex got wrong. And keep reading to discover how Meghan’s hubby Prince Harry faces a real problem when it comes to figuring out the next step in his career.
Meghan Markle Shows Up Uninvited In Hollywood
The Duchess of Sussex recently went uninvited to a major Hollywood event. And Meghan Markle timed her appearance in a way that showed how and why her attempts at fame flop.
For a real test of how Hollywood perceives someone, watch what happens when they believe that they don’t need an invitation to receive a warm welcome on the red carpet.
And while Meghan may see herself as a serious Hollywood power player who doesn’t require an invitation to a Hollywood event, apparently no one in Tinsel Town shares her views. As a result, both the Duchess of Sussex and Duke of Sussex face a perception problem, pointed out the News.
But Meghan and Harry also must find a new type of project. Because thus far, they either use their projects to bash the royal family (for example, Harry’s memoir) or highlight their own interests (for instance, the Duchess of Sussex’s podcast). As a result, Meghan appearing uninvited at the Variety event represented her attempt to give herself a makeover as an entertainment “power player in her own right,” say experts.
But the Duchess of Sussex ignoring her exclusion from the official guest list reflects her “calculated attempt to mute persistent rumors that Netflix is planning to ‘quietly allow’ its $100 million deal with the Sussexes to lapse when their contract ends in 2025.” However, the rumors have soared rather than become muted.
Meghan Markle Seen As ‘Over-Coddled Under-Performer’
And some might see it as pitiful that Meghan truly thought appearing at a Hollywood event would transform her image from that as an “over-coddled under-performer.” However, the Duchess of Sussex showing up uninvited also does disservice to the fact that just a few years ago, she officially represented the British royal family.
And an insider at a Hollywood studio spilled, “The truth is that a lot of people think the couple have blown it. In Hollywood, Harry is viewed as someone stuck in the past and consumed by grudges. Meghan is still able to get a lot of attention,” admitted the source. “But the challenge for her now is about translating that attention into cold, hard cash.”
However, Harry and Meghan actually face different problems. Because the Duke of Sussex still retains his royal family connection, he could conceivably find a way to persuade them to open the Palace door to a return. But can Meghan find her own way to a project that doesn’t involve slamming the royal family? And what would Harry’s role become if the two did go completely different ways in their professional lives?
