Chris Evans Talks About Losing This Role to Ryan Gosling

Chris Evans is opening up about the best audition he ever gave and how he still didn’t get the role.

The 38-year-old actor said that it was “tough” when he lost the lead role in the 2007 movie Fracture, a role that Ryan Gosling ended up getting.

“You know which one was a close one? Fracture. Remember Fracture with Ryan Gosling? I honestly have never had a better audition in my life,” Chris said in an interview with THR. “I hate auditioning. I despise it. I think most actors do, but I got that one and knocked it right out. And it was so great and I had such a great rapport with the director and really felt like it was coming my way.”

Chris added, “Anthony Hopkins was already attached and you really think, this is another one of those moments where I might be able to turn a corner. And to lose that one… obviously, Ryan, if you’re going to lose to someone, lose to Ryan. But it was just one of those things where you think, ‘Man, this is tough.’”

Other movies that Chris missed out on around that same time were Gone Baby Gone, Milk, and Elizabethtown.

In the same interview, Chris explained why he almost turned down the role of Captain America.
