Even the most acclaimed stars in Hollywood have been rejected from a successful production and while some regret not having been part of it, others are grateful to have been left out, as was the case with Emma Stone.
We know that the choice of an actor can define the success or not of a production, por what the directors of casting they take their job very seriously and do all kinds of tests to choose the right one. Some celebrities showed that they were born for their character, as was the case with Henry Cavill with Superman, Margot Robbie with Barbie or Emma Watson as Hermione Granger, but what would have happened if another actor had been left in his place?
Auditions are one of the most important processes in any production and there are stars who have been left out of big box office hits, either due to tight schedules, not trusting the project or not meeting the director’s expectations. One of the best known cases is that of Matt Damon who refused to appear in Avatar of James Cameron losing a fortune, the same happened with Brad Pitt who refused to play Neo in matrix. No doubt his careers would have changed dramatically, but while some regret not having been booked, there are those who celebrate having run out of paper, as is the case with these actresses.
Before jumping to stardom with her role as Katniss Everdeen in the saga of The Hunger GamesJennifer Lawrence tried her luck in different productions. One occasion made the casting for the role of Serena van der Woodsen from Gossip Girl, which ultimately landed in the hands of Blake Lively.
She also auditioned for the role of Bella Swan in Twilight, but didn’t even get the call back. Can you imagine Lawrence and Robert Pattinson as a couple? Pretty weird don’t you think? Despite this, the actress does not regret having been rejected since from there she got other roles that would give her international fame. and now you can see it in Hazme el favour, a film available at Cinépolis and Cinemex.

Before being chosen by the Duffer brothers, the young woman auditioned for game of Thronesspecifically for the role of Lyanna Mormont, known to fans as Lady Bear, which was taken from her by Bella Ramsey who recently shined on The Last of Us with Pedro Pascal. However, if accepted into the George RR Martin universe we probably wouldn’t have seen her face Vecna (Jamie Campbell Bower).
Apparently Emma Stone has always been attracted to the incredible world of Disney and believe it or not, she auditioned to participate in the live action of Alice in Wonderlandbut Tim Burton would find Mia Wasikowska more appropriate for the role. After this, the actress continued to perform more casting finally obtaining a leading role in the company with cruella, also participated in la la land, film that gave him an Oscar. Undoubtedly, the perfect proof that when a door closes a new one opens.
