Jennifer Lawrence auditioned to play Serena on ‘Gossip Girl’
Oh, I can definitely see this.
The Oscar-winning actress was reportedly very keen to take on the role of the main character in the popular high school drama and was “bummed” to not get it”.
Schwartz told Vulture: “We did not realize this at the time, but Jennifer Lawrence really wanted to play Serena and auditioned.
“This story came to us secondhand, but we were told she definitely auditioned and was bummed to not get it.”
Schwartz said of Jennifer’s audition tape: “We can’t remember if we saw it or not. It was ten years ago, and she would’ve been how old, 15?” (She was actually 16, according to Vulture.)
Schwartz said he can’t remember whether he watched the tape or not, and of course, the role of the preppy it girl went to Blake Lively. The show, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary.
