    And while many actors choose to give the fluffy, safe responses in interviews, Rachel got pretty candid when talking with the Hollywood Reporter.

    "I…needed a job. I am being so serious," Rachel said during the interview.

    The clip of Rachel's response has now gone viral on TikTok, with fans praising her for her honesty:

    "Finally an honest answer"
    "Refreshingly honest tbh"
    "You know what? Fair enough"
    "Get your bag sis"
    "oh how i love celebrities who keep it REAL"
    "and i respect that!!"

    Some people even suggested that it be the new default answer in job interviews:

    "what every young person should say at a job interview"
    "Me applying to jobs:"
    "Me when the interviewer asks why I want to work for them"

    Although some fans noted that while it was probably not what the studio wanted to hear, she did praise the film while elaborating on the situation in the rest of the interview.

    She continued, "I could not get a job for the life of me because West Side Story hadn't come out yet and it was really hard to book work for me."
