Kaley Cuoco is an Emmy-nominated actress with two beloved shows under her belt, but that doesn’t mean she isn’t “devastated” when she misses out on a role.
During a recent interview with Glamour, Cuoco, who is on the magazine’s cover, was asked if there was a role she wasn’t cast in after her nearly decade-long success as a Penny in “The Big Bang Theory”.
Cuoco, 36, revealed that she actually auditioned to be in “Knives Out 2,” which will be released later this year.
“I was convinced (the role was mine),” she shared. “Kate Hudson got it eventually. But I was so convinced my bags were ready for Greece.
The ‘The Flight Attendant 2’ star said she had done several chemistry readings and Zoom auditions, so she was “devastated” when she didn’t get the part.
“I cried and cried all night. And it went to Kate, who is awesome,” Cuoco said.
The next day, she received a script for her upcoming romantic comedy, “Meet Cute,” which co-stars Pete Davidson.
Initially, Cuoco didn’t want to read the script, but her team helped her change her mind.
“And when I did, I said, ‘This is the most magical little script,'” she shared. “And I never would have had it if I had ‘knives.’ It just shows you that you’re where you’re supposed to be.
Cuoco said she “couldn’t be happier with how things turned out” and wouldn’t rule out joining the “Knives Out” franchise in the future.
“Maybe I’ll audition for the third one,” she added.
The actor also talked about another kind of grief in his interview. She spoke to Glamor about her plans for her love life after two marriages.
“I will never get married again,” she told the publication. “I would love to have a lasting relationship or partnership. But I will never remarry again. Absolutely not. You can literally put it on the cover. But I believe in love because I’ve had amazing relationships. I know they’re out there I like being someone’s partner and having that company.
Last September, the Golden Globe-nominated actress announced that she was divorcing her husband, Karl Cook, after three years of marriage. She was previously married to Ryan Sweeting from 2013 to 2016.
Cuoco was quick to share with her fans how difficult the past year has been for her.
“I’ve been very open (on social media) that I struggled last year,” she told Glamour. “And because I’m so capable and strong, I wanted people to see, not everything is magic and not everything is easy. I struggle with what I want, what I think I’m meant to have.
She added, “I’m learning as I go.”
