Lawrence AC­TOR Jen­nifer Lawrence was gut­ted to lose out on a role in TV se­ries Gos­sip Girl as a teenager, it’s emerged.

The 27-year-old is the high­est-paid fe­male ac­tor in Hol­ly­wood but her ca­reer might have taken a dif­fer­ent path if her au­di­tion had gone bet­ter.

Show cre­ator Josh Schwartz re­vealed: “We did not re­alise at the time, but Jen­nifer wanted to play Ser­ena [van der Wood­sen].

“We were told she au­di­tioned and was re­ally bummed not to get it.

“It was 10 years ago, and she would’ve been how old, 15?”

The role went to Blake Lively and Lawrence went on to find megas­tar­dom as Kat­niss Everdeen in the Hunger Games se­ries. Rosie O’don­nell
