Michelle Williams found it "demoralising" auditioning as a young woman.
The 'All The Money In The World' star admits it was tough on the circuit when she was trying to break into acting and says she went two years without bagging herself a role.
Speaking about auditioning as a young actress, she said: "Man, what a nightmare. That was so rough. It was you know demoralising. You see the same group of girls and you just feel like talk about a pack, you just travel around in this pack and it seems like nobody ever gets to break out of the pack. I auditioned for two years without getting a part. I was young, too, so at that point that was like a fifth of my life had been spent experiencing rejection, so I think that was hard to tolerate as a kid."
And the 37-year-old actress remembers having to change her outfits when she was in the car, going from one audition to another.
She added: "I had multiple outfits much like the costume box. I would change in between auditions. I remember changing in the car on the freeway and I'm still a very fast changer and I'm a discreet changer because of it. I have a talent for taking my clothes of quickly."
Despite her international fame, Michelle doesn't feel like she's made it just yet and admits she always feels like something's going to be "pulled out from underneath her".
Asked what was the moment she felt like she made it, she told W magazine: "I feel like I'm still waiting for it. I feel like I'm still waiting for the moment of you'll always have work and you'll always have a community and this whole thing isn't about to be sort of pulled out from underneath you. It's a funny thing to have a career or profession where, as you age, you aren't really necessarily allowed to harness all of that growth and all of that knowledge, like you're starting to understand what you do while at the same time your ability to do what you do is diminishing, so it's a very funny. It's hard to have a sense of security in a job like that."
