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?

Aww… this sucks! Well, for the hopeless romantic in us.

Seeing as how they've been together so long, we can only imagine they tried everything before throwing in the towel. And it's believed they haven't been photographed together since January — very telling.

Bradley Cooper Thinks Richard Gere Is SEXXXY

Reigning champeen Bradley Cooper weighed in on who he thought should succeed him. And the winner is…

Richard Gere! Bradley says:

"He's sexy. You could take it from there."

Hmm. We'd rather take it from the Coop, but if he must be replaced, Dick Gear isn't a bad choice.

The American Gigolo actor won back in 1999, so it's not completely out of the question.

But how will Bradley deal with losing his title? He says:
