May 13, 1964, Wednesday. Got an audition with Jean Louis
Sandy Block said Dave was going to ask me out for Saturday and we’re doubling with her and Jack. But he hasn’t even called. I wonder what’s wrong with him. After school, Donna and I went to Modeling School and took Wardrobe and make-up classes. After class I talked to Mr. Fortier the head of the Patricia Stevens Modeling School. He’s bitchen! I told him I wanted to be an actress and he made an appointment for me to see Jean Louis tomorrow at 5:30. It will be an audition. Now I’m really scared and besides I’ll look ugly, because I just washed my hair. I sure hope I do good.
I wanted to be an actress, but that meant more dieting, memorizing scripts and auditioning, if I was going to get serious about a career. It wasn’t just about being cute and fixing my hair,
it was about becoming a real Shakespearean Thespian and working hard for the first time in my life. The struggle with that dream was cutting back on my social life the beach and boys. That was a conflict for me in 1964.
