The actress, best known for starring on 'Orange Is the New Black', recalls the time she had to make out with a store dummy during an audition for a commercial early in her career.

AceShowbiz - Taylor Schilling once "made out" with a mannequin. The 38-year-old actress, who is best known for having starred as Piper Chapman on the Netflix hit "Orange Is the New Black", had been trying out for a commercial early on in her career and as part of the audition had to "be in love" with a store dummy, but was ultimately unsuccessful in her attempt at landing the job.

Speaking on "The Drew Barrymore Show", she said, "It was some sort of commercial audition, probably in some warehouse. So it was something...it was four men, a park bench was set up, and then like a mannequin, like a dummy, like a store mannequin. They were like 'Skip across the bench and leap into the mannequin's arms, let it hold you and make out with it. Be in love with it.' I was like 'Sure!', but I didn't get the job."

Meanwhile, the "Dear Edward" actress received a message on the show from Natasha Lyonne, who claimed that her former co-star is such a "terrible driver" in Los Angeles but suddenly became "terrific" behind the wheel whilst on a trip to Puerto Rico.

Responding to the claims, Taylor said, "Listen, that was fully out of necessity. Necessity is the mother of invention. We were left to the wolves, I know exactly what she is talking about. It was also not a car, it was a golf cart. It was also at a moment that I had just been fired by a rental car company in LA. They were like 'We've had enough of your shenanigans on the road!' There were just a few little be bop a lupas with people. Too many dings!"
