While on the SAG Awards red carpet, Variety’s Angelique Jackson and Marc Malkin asked celebrities the three things that every actor needs. Their answers ranged from serious advice to funny tips about making an actor’s tough life more enjoyable.

“You need thick skin because you’re going to lose roles more than you’re going to get them,” said “Chernobyl” actor Jared Harris.

Alex Borstein from “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” added, “Something to fall back on, because chances are, it’s not going to work out.”

Good food was another frequent answer.

“Words. Love. And whatever your favorite snack is in a massive amount,” said Daveed Diggs, one of the actors of the upcoming “Snowpiercer” series.

“Booksmart” star Kaitlyn Dever had another recommendation, “Peanut M&Ms.”
