Kaley Cuoco ‘cried all night’ after losing role to Kate Hudson

Kaley Cuoco’s ego took a massive hit when she lost a role in Rian Johnson’s star-studded sequel “Knives Out” to fellow blonde beauty Kate Hudson.

“I was convinced [the part was mine]… I was so convinced 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 by the roles.

The 36-year-old former ‘Big Bang Theory’ star says she got quite far in the audition process — attending chemistry readings and Zoom meetings — before finding out that Hudson, 42, , landed the role.

“I cried and cried all night,” she confessed after learning she hadn’t booked the gig.

She has since made peace with the result, although she initially believed, “I was sexy: I’m going to be with Daniel Craig.”

The next day, Cuoco got a call about the upcoming romantic comedy “Meet Cute,” starring Pete Davidson. While she was initially hesitant to take on the project, Davidson’s attachment convinced the TV star to give it a shot.

“I said, ‘That’s the most magical little script,'” Cuoco recalled. “And I never would have had it if I had [got] ‘Knives.'”

“That’s what it was supposed to be,” she continued, “and ‘Knives’ is going to be awesome and Kate is awesome. She was meant to do it and I was meant to do it. And maybe I will audition for the third.

In the same cover story, Cuoco opened up about her split from ex-husband Karl Cook, revealing that she has no intention of remarrying once their divorce is final.

“I will never get married again…I would like to have a lasting relationship or partnership. But I will never get married again,” she repeated. “Absolutely not. You can literally put it on the blanket.
