Actress Ginnifer Goodwin endured a nightmare journey when she decided to move to New York - she broke down in tears after getting lost on her way to the city.
The "Walk the Line" star Ginnifer Goodwin always had big hopes of making the trip the day after she graduated from theater school, but she admits the confusing solo car ride from Boston, Massachusetts to the Big Apple in 2001 sent her into a fit of tears.
Describing the journey during an appearance on U.S. TV's "Live with Regis and Kelly" on Friday, she says, "I saw the skyscrapers in the distance and I was driving back and forth and I called my mother crying. It was before we had navigation systems and iPhones. And I couldn't drive and look at the map."
"So I called my mum crying and I said, 'I know I had this lofty dream of moving to New York City the day after I graduated, but I can't figure out how to get there. (But) I can see it.' There were bridges and tears. My sweet mother was like, 'I'm putting you up in a hotel and you'll figure it out tomorrow.'"
