VIDEO: Ryan Reynolds Talks About His Worst Audition Ever
Ryan Reynolds is opening up about the worst audition he’s ever had… and it involves singing!
The 40-year-old actor auditioned for a recent Coen Brothers movie and it did not go well.
“I auditioned and failed for the Coen brothers,” Ryan said. “It wasn’t the right fit, mostly because they’re very high class. They were just quietly shaking their heads, like, ‘What are you doing here? Do you have a SAG card?’”
Ryan further opened up about his worst audition of all time.
“I was never a great auditioner. But I had one where I had to sing, and I’m a nervous singer,” Ryan said. “I’m one of those people that … you know when you’re in the shower, and you’re like, ‘This is pretty good?’ But once I get out into the real world, it’s just like my voice turns into a hammer that hits everybody in the face. So I did an audition where I had to sing, and it was pretty bad. It’s one of those auditions that was so bad that I look back and I think, ‘What if that tape surfaces at some point? That’ll be the death of me.’ Yeah. That was pretty awful.”
Ryan made the reveal in a Variety Studios: Actors on Actors conversation with Taraji P. Henson. Watch below!
