It is the end of August.  It is hot.  Going into the new season make sure you are, too.

Hot as defined in the Oxford English Dictionary:

"Having a high degree of heat or high temperature."  

"Filled with passionate excitement, anger or other strong emotion."

"Involving much activity, debate or interest."

"(of news) fresh and of great interest."


Who is hot and who is not.  Hollywood virtually runs on this vibe.

IMDB Starmeter takes Hollywood's temperature as to who is hottest on a daily basis. At the time of this writing, the top three women (in Starmeter order) are Emilia Clarke, Pom Klementiff and Jennifer Lawrence.  Top three men are Kit Harington, Tom Hardy and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.  Side note:  they are all pretty hot.  

Embrace your hotness!  It is your job as a successful actor.

Are you intellectually hot?  Are you nerdy hot?  Are you a hot mess???  Hot translates to playing full-out.  Risking.  Hiding is not hot.  Here are three simple ways to maximize your heat. 

Hot tips:

WORK HARD. Take a tip from Gigi Hadid - 73 Questions with Gigi Hadid - Vogue: The best piece of advice your mom gave you:  "If you are not the nicest, most hard working girl in the industry, there's someone prettier, nicer and more hard working."

HAIR AND MAKEUP.  Girls and guys.  For head shots and reels.  Always, always, always get your hair and makeup done professionally.  When time is crunched call Glamsquad or go to Benefit.

MEDITATE.  The hottest tip of all: find out who you are.  Accept it and rock it.
