15 Stars Who Turned Down Oscar-Winning Roles!

anne hathaway crying edit

Screenwriter William Goldman once famously said, “nobody knows anything,” referring to how Hollywood has zero idea what will be good and what will be a train wreck.

So when an actor reads for a role in an upcoming movie, there’s no possible way they can predict if the part is worthy of an Oscar or not.

You just have to go with your gut. And for these 15 movie stars, their gut was DEAD WRONG!

We’ve put together some of the celebs who turned DOWN the chance at an Academy Award-winning performance.

What role did Julia Roberts say “no thanks” to that could have earned her Oscar #2??

Did Anne Hathaway miss out on winning TWO Academy Awards in one year??

And you won’t believe who producers originally wanted to play Forrest, Forrest Gump!

Ready to see who wishes they had a time machine so they could go back and say "YES, YES, A MILLION TIMES YES", to these Oscar-winning roles?

Zut Alors! C'est très romantique!

Hilary Swank gave her French boyfriend Laurent Fleury her own French version of a kiss while in Paris yesterday, as they exchanged spit like exchanging dollars to Euros.

Hilary also kept her eyes wide open during the smooch. We don't blame her! If we were kissing that hunk, we'd want our eyeballs (and other balls) to never forget this moment.

We wonder if Hilary asked him, "voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir?" after she probably gave him an Eiffel Tower in his pants the size of a baguette!

SRSLY! That was a million dollar Euro kiss, baby!

Hilary Swank throws on her darkest denim for the Lucky Brand Beverly Hills store opening.

Hilary Swank is on a roll!

The usually swanky dresser took things down several notches for the Lucky Brand store opening in Beverly Hills on Tuesday — and that's not a bad thing!

Appropriately dressed in an embellished tank and dark skinny jeans, Hilary was the most semi-casual we think we’ve ever seen her on the red carpet!

The 39-year-old perfectly styled her laid back look with black patent pumps, a rectangular clutch and her famous megawatt smile.

Our only complaint is her bangs could have used a little brushing, but other than that, Hilary looked pretty fab!
