‘The Princess Diaries’ actress Heather Matarazzo reportedly said she was ‘just fighting to survive’ and ‘slammed it [her] Limit with Life” in a series of since-deleted tweets.
The posts came in a stream of consciousness on Wednesday from the actress, who revealed her struggles with trying to make it in Hollywood, BuzzFeed reported.
“I’ve been pushed to the limit with every game the universe plays. I’m done. I am tired. I really feel lost like royalty,” said the 39-year-old actress.
“I feel at a loss because I feel like I’ve done THE WORK for a long time without complaint,” she continued.
“I’ve taken the disappointments, the rejections, etc. and asserted that rejection is a diversion. I had constant belief in the universe, but something broke today. I feel occupied.”
In another, now-deleted, tweet, she continued to yearn for a “life-changing victory.”
“I have dedicated my life to acting for over 30 years. And I’m tired of just struggling to survive,” she said. “I just need a win. A life changing victory. Because it isn’t. F–k.”
The Post has reached out to Matarazzo’s rep for comment.
Matarazzo has been busy since the 2001 Disney film and its 2004 sequel. She has had roles in Welcome to the Dollhouse, Scream 3, Sisters, and Saved! and also has a cameo account.
Her IMDb page lists two other gigs in post-production: “The Mattachine Family” and “Paint”.
This wouldn’t be the first time Matarazzo has spoken openly about issues in the industry.
“I don’t know if I took a step back from Hollywood or Hollywood took a step back from me,” she told the Guardian in 2017.
In the same interview, she also revealed that after months of unsuccessful auditions in 2009, she considered suicide.
“I thought, ‘What is this sick and twisted universe?’ The fact that I’m still here is a miracle in itself,” she said.
Matarazzo even addressed people’s perception that all actors live “untouchable, beautiful lives,” explaining, “But really, it’s just not the experience.”
Her reality was almost to sign up as a Lyft rider in 2017, she told the paper.
“Most people think I’m probably getting a lot of money. But I really don’t, and most working actors don’t. I drive a battered f – – King Prius and just bought my first pair of new shoes in over two years,” she said.
