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?

Jodie Foster Is Dating Ellen DeGeneres' Ex-Girlfriend!

Sorry, ladies! Jodie Foster is no longer a super eligible bachelorette. Word is she's now taken.

In fact, we hear she's rather taken with photographer Alexandra Hedison. A source close to the couple says:

"It's pretty serious. They're totally in love."

Aww! We're so happy for the Panic Room star! We were starting to wonder if she and Mel Gibson were going to have to rely on some kind of Will & Grace pact to get them through their twilight years!

BTW, if the name Alexandra Hedison sounds familiar to you, it may be because before the Portia de Rossi dynasty, Alexandra was the main squeeze of Ellen DeGeneres!

That makes Jodie and Ellen officially Eskimo sisters! Gurl must be quite a catch to have hooked up with two such amazing women!

Ch-ch-check out the pics (below) to get a look at Jodie's new gal!
