Even hot, famous, rich people have bad days according to hot, famous, rich person Ryan Reynolds. Reynolds sat down with Taraji P. Henson for an exclusive "Actors on Actors" interview and talked about the last audition he went on, which didn't go too well for him.
According to Reynolds, he "auditioned and failed" for the movie made just before Hail, Caesar!, which was Bridge of Spies— directed by Steven Spielberg and written by the Coen brothers. He definitely didn't get the part.
"In the room, they were just quietly shaking their heads, like, ‘What are you doing here?" recalls Reynolds. "Do you have a SAG card? Or do you have the Canadian version?"
Okay, it probably wasn't even that bad. Besides, Reynolds could just fart on camera for an hour and a half and people would still pay money to see it. Despite bombing, it is likely that Reynolds will be just fine. Like, "blockbuster-draw millionaire with hot wife and booming career" fine. Your loss, Spielberg!
