Kaley Cuoco is getting honest about a role she lost that made her crush.

In an interview with Glamor magazine for their cover story in April, the alum “Big Bang Theory” shared that she had tried for “Knives Out 2” – and was “convinced” that she had the role.

I had made Zooms. And I did not get it. I cried and cried all night long. And it went to Kate, who is amazing. “
