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.

The highly anticipated movie musical La La Land starring Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling is in theaters now and the soundtrack was just released.
The movie features new songs written by Justin Hurwitz and Broadway composers Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.
Some of the songs featured on the soundtrack include several versions of “City of Stars” and the opening number “Another Day of Sun.”
La La Land tells the story of Mia (Stone), an aspiring actress, and Sebastian (Gosling), a dedicated jazz musician, who are struggling to make ends meet in a city known for crushing hopes and breaking hearts. Set in modern day Los Angeles, this original musical about everyday life explores the joy and pain of pursuing your dreams.
You can download the soundtrack now on iTunes and stream it below on Spotify.
“I probably shouldn’t say right now,” the 36-year-old actor expressed during his appearance on The Ellen Show, airing later today (December 9). “I think we should get a roomba for our roomba. It’s a little robot that cleans your house but I feel bad for it because it works tirelessly. At night I can hear it cleaning downstairs and I just feel bad for it.”
Ryan also talked about La La Land, working with three-time co-star Emma Stone, and gushed about his daughters: Esmeralda, 2, and Amada, 10 months.
Ryan and Emma, 28, joined composer Justin Hurwitz and director Damien Chazelle at their special SF Film Society screening for La La Land at the Castro Theatre on Thursday (December 8) in San Francisco, Calif.
