Breaking into Hollywood is no easy feat and some folks are going to extreme heights to catch their big break.

Tyler Perry shared an image of a billboard featuring an aspiring actress to his Twitter on Wednesday.

In his tweet, the director made it clear that he is not feeling this gesture, sharing that this is the third time this has happened.

He went on to add “This is not the way to get my attention if you’re looking for a role in one of my shows…when you do things like this it puts my team on high alert and makes me look at you sideways.”

As it turns out, according to a statement obtained by CNN, though Mr. Perry rejected her pitch in the sky, Racquel Bailey, the ad’s purchaser, has no regrets and stands by her decision.

“Sometimes in life, you just have to take a leap of faith, believe in yourself so much that others will think what you’re doing is crazy”

Bailey, 32, paid $2,100 for two billboards that will stay up for 30 days in Atlanta.
