We have just three days to go until the Oscars and that means we're down to just a couple more career tips from the women that make it happen in Hollywood. Glamour got director Kimberly Pierce to talk about her success secrets. Remember a little movie called Boys Don't Cry that won Hilary Swank an Academy Award? Kimberly directed it.
I love what she has to say about working with others. She said, "Collaborate with smart people. That will allow you to work hard, follow your gut and make mistakes."
Mamie Gummer stars in Kimberly's newest movie, Stop-Loss, and the actress talked about why Kimberly is a role model. "Kimberly is tough when she needs to be and tender when she needs to be — striking that balance isn't easy. With actors, she was very giving, but when she needed to throw down with the money man, she did."
