Ryan Gosling & Emma Stone Share Their Tips for Overcoming Failure!
The 36-year-old actor and the 28-year-old actress – who star together in the highly acclaimed film La La Land – revealed that rejection and failure have been some of their biggest blessings in disguise.
Emma said she spent more than three years auditioning for “whatever [she] could get,” to no avail. “Nothing really worked out,” she told Teen Vogue. “So I think, yeah, facing rejection day after day can be really, really tough.”
“It is funny how the things that happen in your life can feel terrible in the moment but lead you to those [better] places,” she added.

Ryan agreed with Emma‘s sentiments, adding, “The chances of anyone getting anything was so slim. One thing you don’t realize in the beginning is how lucky you are not to be getting parts. At the time it feels devastating because you think everything is your chance. You’re more lucky for the things you didn’t get than the things you do, ’cause they could change the course of your life.”
