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?

Chris Hemsworth may play a god, but when it comes to breaking character and laughing a little onset, he's a human just like the rest of us! Except, you know, perfect in every way!

Asgard has gifted us with the gag reel for Thor: The Dark World, and it is HIGHlarious! SRSLY you'd have to be a Frost Giant not to find this funny!

Chris and the Loki-playing Tom Hiddleston dance, Chris loses his head…of his penis hammer Mjolnir, and Natalie Portman gives Chris what seems like an infinite amount of slaps!

At one point, the raven perched on Anthony Hopkins' arm refuses to leave his AH-Mazing acting skills! Maybe they could have been tempted by a dove released by the Pope…or some fava beans?

Ch-ch-check out the gag reel that will have you laughing so hard you might slip into a deep Odinsleep (above)!!!

Chris Hemsworth Looks Thor-oughly Epic In New Thor: The Dark World Poster!

By Odin's badass eye patch, we love this new poster for Thor: The Dark World!

In this one, we see the whole cast of characters in an epic tableau, which is very reminiscent of the old Star Wars posters of yore!

Natalie Portman's Jane Foster looks seksi in some armor, Chris Hemsworth's Thor looks like he's about to hit the world's largest nail in the head, and even Anthony Hopkins' Odin looks just about ready to eat the new villain Malekith with some fava beans (slurp!).

And, of course, there's an army of elves! And not the kind that transform a hollowed out tree into a bakery! They're dark elves! OoooO!
