          (The actress enters, she is beautiful, not an ingenue, but still with some prime left.  She listens, nods)

Are you done?  Good.

            (She takes out a cigarette and lights it up)

Oh, don't look at me like that!  If you think I'm stupid to smoke, don't smoke!  But it's still a free country!  Kind you are asking me for a bit of advice.....well, my friend, here it is.  You got your first bad review.  Boo hoo!

I - who somehow has been terrorized for taking chances.....have had to endure the slings and arrows of stupid critics for many years....and had to watch you while you bitch and moan over imagined slights......

What was the worst one before?  That the movie you were in stunk....but you were the only thing worth watching!  How you held that over my head!  Could you be more annoying?

How many years have you been on stage?  In the movies?  And not one bad review?  That's amazing!  And you have the gall to complain!

Well, all I can say's about time!  And you might actually improve a bit because someone actually took the time to see past your....

            (Lifts her arms in a wide flourish)


             (She stubs out the cigarette, turns to leave, stops, looks back)

So my dear friend, after you have stopped your sniveling.....please remember the most important thing.....the only worse thing than criticism is.........silence.....

             (She another review)
