Jennifer Lawrence Wanted to Play Serena on 'Gossip Girl'!

Gossip Girl creator Josh Schwartz is revealing that he almost had a very different actress portraying the character Serena on the hit show: Jennifer Lawrence!

Josh revealed in a Vulture interview that Jennifer originally auditioned for the iconic Serena van der Woodsen role, which ultimately went to Blake Lively.

“We did not realize this at the time, but Jennifer Lawrence really wanted to play Serena and auditioned. This story came to us secondhand, but we were told she definitely auditioned and was bummed to not get it,” he explained.

“We can’t remember if we saw it or not. It was ten years ago, and she would’ve been how old, 15?”

It’s safe to say Jennifer is handling the rejection just fine these days. Could you imagine her playing Serena on the show?

Ed Westwick Still Doesn't Know Who 'Gossip Girl' Is!

Ed Westwick played Chuck Bass on Gossip Girl through the CW series’ hit run, but he just admitted something big.

The 30-year-old actor still doesn’t know who Gossip Girl ended up being, which was the key mystery on the whole show.

“I still am not sure who GG was lol,” Ed wrote in an email to a Vanity Fair writer when asked about his favorite plot lines.

If you don’t know, Dan Humphrey, played by Penn Badgley, ended up being Gossip Girl.

“I wasn’t born into this world, maybe I could write myself into it,” Dan said during the infamous reveal. “I might have been a joke, but at least these people were talking about me.”

Could 'Gossip Girl' Be Rebooted One Day? Stars Weigh In & Share Their Thoughts!

Blake Lively, Leighton Meester, and more of the show’s original stars are sharing their thoughts on the possibility of a Gossip Girl reunion or a reboot.

When asked the question, Blake responded positively, telling Vanity Fair, “Of course. I’m open to anything that’s good, that’s interesting, and that sort of feels necessary. . . . I imagine we all would [consider it]. I can’t speak for everyone else, but we all owe so much to this show, and I think that it would be silly not to acknowledge that.”

Leighton was a bit more skeptical, saying, “Yeah, I don’t really hear [talk of] that . . . I guess I hear that in fits and starts here and there, but it’s hard to say. If everyone was into it and if the timing was right, you know?. I don’t want to say, ‘No, never . . .’”

Kelly Rutherford, who played Blake‘s mom on the show, added, “I would be completely on board. And I think they should do it soon.”

Finally, Wallace Shawn, who played Blair’s step father, chimed in, “Oh, I would jump at it.”

“Would you ask a man that?” Blake told the reporter, according to USA Today digital editor Maeve McDermott.

“Come on you want to talk about an outfit today? Come on what about building women up? Outfits? Would you ask a man that?” Blake said (via NY Daily News). “You wouldn’t ask a man what a power outfit was. I’m sorry.”

“But see, this is the moment where we become more aware, and that we change, and that we build women up. So, you can ask me another question,” Blake said in a short video clip from the moment.

Blake Lively on 'Gossip Girl' Revival: 'Never Say Never!'

Blake Lively is opening up about the possibility of Gossip Girl coming back for a revival season!

The 29-year-old actress was asked if she’d be open to doing a grown-up version of the show if the cast decides to reunite.

“It sort of all depends. Would I do seven years of the show? No, because it’s hard work and I’ve got my babies, and I don’t want to be away from them that much,” Blake said in a new interview with Variety.

“But I’ve just learned in life you never say never. I’m looking to do something that I haven’t done yet, not something that I did,” Blake added. “But would I do that? Who knows — if it was good, if it made sense. We had so much fun shooting and living and working in New York City.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK – should there be a Gossip Girl reunion or not?

Blake Lively's 'Gossip Girl' Role Could Have Gone to Rumer Willis

Blake Lively wasn’t the first choice that the network had for Serena van der Woodsen when they were casting Gossip Girl many years ago.

“I think the network initially pitched us Ashley Olsen and Rumer Willis for Blair and Serena,” The CW’s casting director David Rapaport told BuzzFeed. “I love Rumer, she’s grown into quite an amazing actress and person, but that, to me, was based on protecting the investment of a television show where creatively, these lesser-known girls really captured the essence of the show and carried it for six years.”

“I read so many people. I think at the end of the day, we tested Blake, Katie Cassidy, who is now on Arrow, and this girl who was [Serena] on the Gossip Girl books. Not even her face, just her legs. But it made sense,” he added.
