Kaley Cuoco has admitted that she “cried all night long” after learning a starring role in an expected new film that had gone to another actress.
Kaley Cuoco is getting honest about a role she lost that made her crush.
In an interview with Glamor magazine for its cover story in April, the former The Big Bang Theory star shared as she had tried to The knives out 2 – and was “convinced” that she had the role.
The role, however, went to Kate Hudson.
“But I was so convinced that my bags were packed for Greece,” Cuoco recalled. “And then I did not get it. I was so crushed. And I am (usually) not crushed over roles. I had read chemistry. I had made Zooms. And I did not get it. I cried and cried all night long. And that went to Kate, who is amazing. ”

The following day, the actress told that she received a phone call about her upcoming film, Meet Cute. Cuoco plays together SNL ‘s Pete Davidson.
“They said, ‘We have an interesting script.’ And I said, ‘I do not want to read anything. I suck. No one wants me.’ They said, ‘You have to read this,’ she remembered thinking, “and Pete was already attached, and I’re thinking, ‘Okay, I want to read this,'” the 36-year-old said.
“And when I did, I said, ‘This is the most magical little script.’ And I would never have gotten it if I (got) Knives. It just shows you that you are where you need to be.
“I mean, I was sorry. And that was when I thought I was on fire, so I’ll definitely get it. And they said, ‘No, we’ll take Kate.’
Asked if she got a reason why she did not get the role, Cuoco said “No”, but she admitted that she thought she “was hot s ** t” in the time leading up to the casting decision.
“I thought I was hot s ** t: I have to be with Daniel Craig. This is amazing. But I could not be more pleased with how things went. That was what it was supposed to be, and ‘Knives’ will be “and Kate’s amazing. She should do it and I should do this. And maybe I’ll audition for the third one.” Stewardess star split.
The knives out 2 does not have an official release date yet. Cuoco is set to appear in season 2 of Stewardesswith local premiere at BINGE on April 21st.
