Kaley Cuoco’s ego took a serious hit when she lost a role in the sequel to Rian Johnson’s star-studded hit “Knives Out” to blonde beauty Kate Hudson.
“I was convinced [the part was mine]… I was so confident that my bags were packed for Greece,” Cuoco told Glamor in her April 2022 cover story. “And then I didn’t get it. I was so devastated. And I’m not [normally] devastated about rolling.”
The former ‘Big Bang Theory’ star, 36, says she made it quite a way through the audition process – attending chemistry lectures and Zoom meetings – before discovering Hudson, 42, landed the part.
“I cried and I cried all night,” she admitted after learning she hadn’t booked the gig.
She’s since come to terms with the outcome, though initially she believed, “I was hot: I’ll be with Daniel Craig.”
The next day, Cuoco received a call about the upcoming rom-com Meet Cute starring Pete Davidson. While she was initially hesitant to take on the project, Davidson’s bond convinced the TV star to give it a try.
“I said, ‘This is the most magical little script,'” Cuoco recalled. “And I would never have gotten it if I [got] ‘Knife.'”
“That’s how it’s supposed to be,” she continued, “and ‘Knives’ is going to be great and Kate is great. She should do it and I should do it. And maybe I’ll audition for the third time.”
In the same cover story, Cuoco opened up about her split from her estranged husband, Karl Cook, and revealed that she has no intention of remarrying once their divorce is final.
“I will never marry again…I would like to have a lasting relationship or partnership. But I will never marry again,” she repeated. “Absolutely not. You can literally put that on the cover.”
