    I want to be a Actor or YouTuber in the future, the thing is I usually go about my daily life with a "blank" expression, and when I try to make certain dramatic facial expressions I just look ridiculous.

    When I watch series such as Breaking Bad I am amazed in how well Actors can make such complicated expressions.

    I think my facial muscles are just "weak" so I was wondering are their certain exercises I should do that would improve my ability to make more complicated expressions?

    No idea why you're asking this on Sherdog...

    But, anyways, practicing your facial expressions and emotions in front of a mirror is a real thing.

    Do it.

    You gots the "bitch face" dude and it's a typical symptom of ADHD. My slack facial expressions have caused me untold grief in the way people perceived me.

    Sing songs in the mirror.

    Play saxophone or trumpet it'll tighten up your ambiture.

    Do pushups with your lips.

    Chew lots of gum.

    Get a job where you talk all day. Like at a call center.

    Have convos with real people face to face.

    I've been told my whole life that my neutral expression makes me look pissed off all the time. I hate hearing that, but I guess there's little I can do about it. So, I know where you're coming from.

    Yeah. I thought the constant "Are you mad?" and "What's wrong?" Out of nowhere was just a mom being a mom, but then I went to college and they told me that I do indeed do look pissed whenever I'm just bored or not engaged. Then one girl said it looked like a serial killer, and it stuck for four years

    Almost avoided it continuing, then started watching Dexter with a girl here and apparently I look a bit like Michael C Hall...
