Jennifer Lawrence Was “Devastated” She Didn’t Get This 1 Movie Role

And reveals what she thinks of the actress who did

She’s landed her fair share of covetable parts (from her big break, the Hunger Games franchise, to award-winning roles in films like Silver Linings Playbook) but Red Sparrow star Jennifer Lawrence is still wistful about the one that got away.

Speaking on the Howard Stern SiriusXM radio show, Lawrence opened up about the one audition she was “devastated” to lose.

“Emma Stone and I had this conversation once, ‘cause we used to always audition for the same thing, which now seems silly because our careers are so different,” Lawrence begins. “She got one thing that I was dying for, but the one thing that really killed me, the only time I’ve ever been truly devastated by losing an audition – because most of the time you’re like, ‘eh, wasn’t meant to be, move on, what can you do?’ – was Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland.”

“That one devastated me,” she adds.

Of course, that role went to Australian actress Mia Wasikowska, who Lawrence says was “perfect and amazing” as Alice.
