Jennifer Lawrence has absolutely killed it in her acting career. She has landed some of the most iconic roles ever in huge movies, like the Hunger Games franchise for example.
But there is one role she missed out on that completely devastated her.
"The one thing that really killed me, like the only time I've ever been truly devastated by losing an audition ― 'cause most of the time you're like, 'Ah, wasn't meant to be, move on, what can you do?' ― was Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland," she said to Howard Stern at his radio show.
"That one devastated me." The role of Alice ended up going to Mia Wasikowska, who Jennifer conceded was "perfect and amazing" in the role — plus, "I couldn't have had a British accent," she admitted.
She also admitted that she was up for the role as Bella Swan in Twilight. Whoa.
"I didn't really know what [Twilight] was," Jen said. "When you audition when you're, like, a run-of-the-mill actor — you know, we're all auditioning for all sorts of things — you just get like five pages and they're like, 'Act, monkey!' When it came out, I was like, 'Hot damn! Whoa!'"
She admits that she isn't jealous of Kristen for landing the role, but she is salty about her friend Emma Stone getting "one thing that I was dying for."
"I auditioned for Easy A. I wanted it so bad," Jennifer said recently at The Hollywood Reporter's Actress Roundtable. "Well, guess what? You didn't get it. You didn't get it because you suck!" Emma responded.
