If you’re a fan of The Big Bang Theory, then you’ll know Melissa Rauch from her moments on screen. She maintained a low profile throughout her career, though one controversy negatively impacted her fame. This included her “hobbit hands,” when she didn’t get the job for a commercial because the director didn’t like her hands. She said, “When I was first auditioning and going out for commercials, my hands stood in the way. I was in the running for a [TGI] Friday’s commercial, to play a waitress, and I was down to the wire on it… I was in the callback, and they said, ‘Okay, great, so glad you’re available next week. One more thing, can we just see your hands, to the camera? Show them back and front.’ I did that, and I heard the director from behind the camera go, ‘Jesus Christ!'” Because of the body shaming, she didn’t get the job, though this probably helped her more than hindered her (via Yahoo).
