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?

da brat million lawsuit verdict wenn doodle

See. This is why you don’t use booze bottles to beat the crap out of someone!

Rapper Da Brat knows that now FOR SURE, since she’s been ordered by a jury to pay $6.4 MILLION to Shayla Stevens!

Da Brat (real name Shawntae Harris) was found guilty of assaulting Shayla in an Atlanta nightclub and served three years in prison for it.

But doing time for the crime wasn’t enough. Now it’s time to cough up some serious cash!

Yesterday, a jury awarded Shayla, a former Atlanta Falcons cheerleader, all that money to cover her injuries after the attack. She suffered permanent facial scarring, neurological impairment, and severe mental pain!

Well, chyeah! She got cold-cocked in the head with a liquor bottle!

Ouch!

Shayla deserves every dime she’s about to get!

But wait a sec…

How does he not have someone on his arm??

Is it because he's still pining over Miley Cyrus?! LOLz!

We're sure Kellan Lutz isn't pining for anyone because looking like he does, he could get any lady he wants.

And we can't help but wonder whether Kellan found a sweetheart for the night when he attended the 2014 Hollywood Domino and Bovet 1822 Gala for Oscars week before continuing on to the 5th Anniversary Of Suzy's Global Sustainable Design Campaign at Palihouse in El Lay!

We wouldn't have minded if a few of those buttons on his shirt were undone, but we can still imagine the naughty things we'd like to do to him even with his bod covered up.

After all, there are Hercules images everywhere!

Dammmmmmmn Jeremy Renner, you so sexy! How you get so sexy??

Jeremy Renner plays a superhero on screen so of course he's got to have a superhero bod!!

And Jeremy Renner doesn't wear muscle suits or deal with CG muscle additions.

So he hits the gym and hits it hard! Mmmm….

He was recently snapped while outside of his gym in West Hollywood, carrying his gym bag, wearing some cool shades and wearing a sleeveless shirt.

Clearly, he's bulking up to see his movie American Hustle win big at the Oscars this Sunday!

Boy are we glad he forgot his sleeves that morning! He's looking jacked!!

Katy Perry, Ellen DeGeneres & P!nk Are Just A Few Names Showing That #GirlsCan With CoverGirl!

| Filed under: Beauty BuzzQueen LatifahEllen DeGeneresPinkKaty PerryJanelle MonaeAd CampaignsMakeup Magic!

Much fab.

CoverGirl’s latest television spot is star-studded and fabulous, but instead of promoting any of their makeup line, they’re promoting something a little different: women empowerment!

Starring Katy Perry, Ellen DeGeneres, P!nk, Queen Latifah, Janelle Monáe, Becky G, and even ice hockey star Natalie Wiebe, their #GirlsCan ad is looking to leave people inspired and encouraged.

With all these stunning ladies sharing their experiences on how they changed "girls can’t" into "girls can", we feel this campaign is one to be remembered.

Especially with how rare a message this is in the beauty industry! As Ellen says, "easy, breezy, and beautiful".

Ch-ch-check it out (above)!!

From the Prince of Hollywood to a real-life prince!

George Clooney’s supermodel ex Monika Jakisic (AKA, the Croatian Sensation) has a new man in her life and he’s LITERALLY royalty!

Sources say a romance is sparking between Monika and Prince Andrew!

The Duke of York (his official title) is the ex-husband of Sarah “Fergie” Ferguson, and has had his personal life splashed on magazine covers for years.

But this time, he’s going for low-key love!

Monika helped Andrew celebrate his 54th birthday last week at London’s Cecconi’s restaurant. Eyewitnesses say the twosome sat next to each other and got very close and cuddly during their meal!
