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?

helen hunt her family enjoy a refreshing hike through nature

So sweet!

Helen Hunt took a break from hitting the waves, to tromp on a hike through nature!!!

The movie actress was out with her husband Matthew Carnahan and her cute daughter Makena Lei and a few friends this past Sunday as they hiked along the Fryman Canyon in California, and boy did they look like they were having fun!

We LOVE how Helen and her hubby spend time with their little girl! Nothing is more exhilarating than being out in the great outdoors!

Or at least that's our opinion!

To us, this is seriously As Good As It Gets!!!

Lolz!

luke wilson helen hunt ride surfing shooting movie

Luke Wilson and Helen Hunt are filming a surfing movie right now, which really doesn't sound like something we'd ever imagine saying!

We don't care though, because it sounds great — plus, we get to see two of our fave actors in wetsuits and on the beach! The movie, Ride, was written and directed by Helen about a New York City magazine editor who 'takes off after her free-spirited son when he ditches school to become a surfer in California.'

These pics were snapped on set in Venice, CA! It honestly looks like a pretty tough job to shoot a surfing movie! They've got their work cut out for them! It looks physically exhausting!

Still, they both look amazing! More pics (below)!!

Helen Hunt joined the haute Oscars crowd in Hollywood tonight, but her gown was anything but!

The actress wore a really wrinkled navy H&M dress which she paired with lots of silver jewels and a matching clutch.

Really? Out of alllllll the gowns at her disposal to wear on the biggest night of the year she chose H&M!?

Talk about a missed opportunity!

Helen Hunt classed up the Global Green USA’s Pre-Oscar Party on Wednesday night.

Sticking with the green theme, the actress wore a sleeveless Dolce & Gabbana teal dress that was just tight enough to be age-appropriate.

Green and gold jewels and peep toe heels finished off her look.

Think Helen will pull out all the stops on Sunday or go with something safe???
