Confessions Of A Hollywood Movie Extra

Hollywood movie magic seems way more magical when you don't know all the behind-the-scenes secrets, but with all the DVD extras and leaked footage floating around that magic is starting to lose its sparkle.

And yet, even with all that access to behind the scenes information, nobody can make movie magic fizzle quite like an extra.

They’re the unknown faces who fill in the scene so the main talent doesn’t get lonely, the aspiring actors and average joes who see all kinds of stuff on film sets we don't get to see on the DVD.

Extras get to see it all without the fame and fortune, so there's nothing stopping them from spilling the beans, but the revelations found in 21 Secrets Film Extras Will Never Tell You aren't scandalous.

In fact, contributor "Emerald Jones" actually makes the whole movie extra gig seem way more mundane than you'd expect, albeit mundane with a side of Johnny Depp.

I have been an extra in a bunch of stuff shot here. You might have seen my back in "The Next Two Days" or "Those Who Kill." Russell Crowe said "Hello" to me.

Yeah....you're impressed.
