Comedienne Leslie Jones has a message for anyone looking to succeed in showbiz: believe in yourself! "I always thought I was going to be famous, it just was a matter of who was going to get to see me, who was going to find me," said the former Saturday Night Live cast member turned host of ABC’s Supermarket Sweep revival during a virtual press conference promoting the show. "Everybody knew I was funny. Of course, [when building] any kind of a career you're definitely going to have days when you're discouraged and you're, like, 'Should I have done this?' But that's what makes it more worth it when you make it, because you know that you stuck with it. I always knew I was going to make it. And as far as being famous now, where everybody knows me, that was part of my diabolical plan."
