New Delhi (ANI): Hollywood actress Evangeline Lilly was so desperate to travel around the world that she began working as a flight attendant. However, the job didn't stand up to her expectations, as it was terribly grueling, thus she finally quit and ventured into Hollywood, reports China Daily.
"I had no money. I was living on tea and peanut butter when I was a university student. I just wanted to travel so desperately that I would have done anything. I did the flight attendant training, which is grueling and hectic," Evangeline said. "I did the job for one month and then I quit. I hated it so much. I didn't really get to see anywhere I would go to Germany, and I'd be flying out the next morning. What's the point of that?" Evangeline added.
After venturing into Hollywood, The Hurt Locker actress is grateful that her profession takes her to multifarious places around the world. "Now I can see the world. Last summer, I went to seven different countries on two different sides of the Atlantic, in two different hemispheres, in two months," Evangeline told The Dark Horizon website.
"I went to South America, to Argentina and Peru. And I went to Europe. I've also been to Japan and all sorts of other places. Russia is next on my hit list. I've got to go see Russia. And I'd like to go to Southeast Asia," she added.
