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 Dumped Her Boyfriend — And Now Her House

| Filed under: Hilary SwankOscarsFor Reals Estate

Hilary Swank's Pacific Palisades Mansion

Hilary Swank must have realized a single lady doesn't need 6.5 bathrooms!

The double Oscar winning actress, recently ditched her agent boyfriend, and is now looking to sell the massive estate she bought when they started dating.

The Million Dollar Baby's pimped-out Pacific Palisades Mediterranean-style mansion ocean-view residence boasts 6 bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms.

Some of the most luxurious amenities include: a "double-gated motor court" (swank for Swank!), a fitness room, leather-walled cigar room and wine cellar, a state-of-the art theater and, of course, an extra-long saltwater swimming pool!

The asking price is a mere $9.495 million dollars!! A steal!!

It's only a little bit more than the $5.8 million she bought for it back in 2007. Not a bad profit for a girl who came from nothing!

Ch-ch-check out pics of Hilary's (and your possible future) home below!

Hilary Swank Split With Her Agent Boyfriend

Hilary swank splits with boyfriend

They've been over for a while now, but the news has just surfaced that Hilary Swank split with her boyfriend of five years, John Campisi.

Sources say they ended their romantic relationship earlier in the summer. Hopefully they can maintain a professional relationship … because he's actually her agent at the Creative Artists Agency.

Things must still be amicable though; as far as we know, he's still her agent.

Bummer things didn't work out in the love department, but at least they're both still able to help each other in the career department.
