Tracee Ellis Ross Candid on Where "Funny" Comes From, Sexism & Racism in the Biz, Frustrating Auditions + More (VIDEO)

The Hollywood Reporter has published another one of their typically awesome annual roundtable chats with active industry talents; and I particularly appreciated the candidness of this one, which features 6 TV actress/comedians – including Tracee Ellis Ross, Gina Rodriguez, Lena Dunham, Ellie Kemper, and Kate McKinnon – as they talk sexism, sex scenes, why women need to stop apologizing, and much more.

The interview is in print, with a few video clips scattered throughout the piece, featuring the women individually. Like this one with Tracee Ellis Ross, in which she shares her thoughts on where "funny" comes from, sexism and racism in the business, and recollects a humorous though frustrating audition she once had.

Warning: there’s some adult language in this clip, so you may not want to have this turned up if you’re at the office when you play it:
