Alison Brie Has A 'Gross' Story About An Audition For 'Entourage'

When discussing stereotypical attitudes towards women professionals in the '80s, Alison admitted that she has faced similarly sexist views, especially when she was first starting out in Hollywood. In March, she and longtime boyfriend Dave Franco tied the knot, her new Netflix original comedy series GLOW debuts later this month - and the star says the two experiences actually have a lot in common.

GLOW is set in the 80s, much like the original show from that time period, so, speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Ms. Brie addressed questions about what has changed since that bygone era. "Wrestling and marriage, they're both just like, 'YAAAAHHHH I can take on anything!'"

Entourage, which starred Adrian Grenier, Kevin Connolly and Kevin Dillon, ran for eight seasons from 2004 until 2011.

HBO had no information regarding Brie's claims, and a rep for the actress wasn't immediately available for comment.

Jennifer Euston, the casting director for GLOW, later took to Twitter to share her disdain for the experience Brie had.

Brie also recalled "begging" for roles in Marvel movies which only had three lines, and added there's not enough interesting roles for women in TV and film. And I'd be glad to get them!

Euston replied, "Nor I - makes me sick there are producers who abuse their power & if there was a Casting Director present, they did nothing?" It's brutal, it just is. Early in Alison Brie's career, the actress auditioned for a role in Entourage.

The series - co-created by Orange is the New Black's Jenji Kohan - begins on Netflix on 23 June.
