Euphoria actor Lukas Gage shared a video Friday afternoon of a Zoom audition call he had with an unnamed director.
The director didn’t realize his microphone was on and began trash-talking Gage’s apartment and Lukas heard the whole thing!
“These poor people live in these tiny apartments,” the director said, “Like I’m looking at his background and he’s got his TV and you know….”
Gage came back with the perfect response though saying, “I know it’s a shitty apartment, that’s why give me this job so I can get a better one.”

Other celebs started coming to his defense in the comments. Joe Jonas commented on his Instagram post saying, “Handled like a champ.” post along with a thumbs-up emoji. “That’s f—ked up,” Sophie Turner added.
“Wow! Well handled man. Hope you got it too,” Robbie Amell wrote. “I didn’t!” Gage replied along with a tongue-out laughing emoji. “But thank u.”
And Emmy Rossum, who costars with Gage in the new Peacock series Angelyne wrote that she knew who the director might be.
“I think I know that voice. If it’s who I’m thinking, he asked me to ‘audition’ for him once. But not to read a scene. He said he knew I could act. Just to come into his office in a bikini and do a twirl. No joke. THAT was the ask. My reps said he wanted to know if I was ‘fat right now.’ I believe I told my agent, ‘Tell him no thank you and to go f—k himself.”
