Jennifer Lawrence opened up to Emma Stone

House at the End of the Street actress said that she was able to share her feeling with actress Emma Stone as they would often bump into each other at auditions. Lawrence said,


“Emma Stone and I had this conversation once because we always used to do the ‘castings’ for the same thing, which is stupid because our careers are different.” 

“She got something that I was dying for, but the thing that really killed me, the only time I’ve ever been really devastated about losing a casting, because most of the time you think, ‘Well, it was something that wasn’t meant to be. Move on. What can you do?’ was Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland.”

The 32-year-old actress also revealed that she missed her chance to lead in Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart’s Twilight series, but she was more bothered by Disney’s first live-action film. She said,

“I didn’t know what it was really like. When you’re casting as a regular actor and we’re all auditioning for this kind of thing, they just give you five pages and say, ‘Act, monkey! When it came out, I thought, ‘Holy sh*t.'”

Alice in Wonderland is available on Apple TV and YouTube.
