It's not unusual for a Hollywood exec to flirt with or even date their assistants. And some assistants rather enjoy the Remora/Host relationship. But these pairings usually come after months of late nights working together, a few drinks and the conclusion of divorce proceedings.
Some executives can't wait that long. These people use the staffing process as screening for a date. Thus I offer the following question one of my loyal readers received during a job interview...
What's your favorite color?
You couldn't come up with a better line than that? There are hundreds of cheesy pick-up lines. Might I suggest next time you use one of your high-priced writer clients to craft you something slightly more romantic?
