Emma Stone & Ryan Gosling's 'La La Land' Roles Almost Went to These 2 Stars

Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, the stars of the anticipated upcoming movie La La Land, are featured together on the cover of Variety magazine’s new issue.

Here’s what they had to share with the mag:

Emma, on her worst auditions: “People would look up at me and look back at their paper and not look at me again. I remember feeling very insignificant. I would almost rather you yell at me.”

Ryan, on the film: “The film straddles two lines — sort of a kitchen-sink drama and a romanticized musical,” he says. “I felt like if we could get the relationships and the characters right, we would be OK, because the music was always there and always beautiful.”

Director Damien Chazelle also revealed that Miles Teller and Emma Watson were originally attached to the film! Damien also spoke with Michael B. Jordan about a role.
