Even though the second season of The stewardess — an HBO Max show that Kaley Cuoco not only stars in but produces — is set to drop, the actress opened up to Glamor magazine this week for a part that got away.
Cuoco was asked if there was ever a role she wanted that she couldn’t get, even after her success in The Big Bang Theory.
“Oh yeah. It was actually quite recent. It was a sequel to Knives out“, she told the magazine. “And I was convinced [the part was mine]. Kate Hudson ended up getting it. But I was so convinced that my suitcases were ready for Greece. And then I didn’t understand.
“I was so devastated. And I’m not [normally] devastated by the roles. I had done chemistry readings, I had zoomed in. And I didn’t understand. I cried and cried all night. And it went to Kate, who’s awesome.
But Cuoco didn’t stay long. The next day, she said, she received a call about
Meet cute“, the film she shot with Pete Davidson last year. She didn’t want to read the script, but finally gave in.
“And when I did, I said, ‘This is the most magical little script. And I never would have had it if I [got] Knives. I couldn’t be happier with how things turned out.
Plus, she said, “maybe I’ll audition for the third one.”
