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!

FYI: Ryan is wearing J Brand pants.

Amy Adams & Taraji P. Henson Recall Stage Fright During Their Oscars Performances!

Do you remember when Amy Adams and Taraji P. Henson hit the stage for performances at the Oscars? Well, if you thought they were comfortable on stage, they were actually so nervous! The Oscar-nominated actresses opened up about their experiences during an Actress Roundtable discussion for The Hollywood Reporter.

Also included were Natalie Portman, Emma Stone, Naomie Harris, Annette Bening, and Isabelle Huppert.

Amy performed a song from Enchanted back in 2008 while Taraji hit the stage in 2006 for Hustle and Flow.

“The worst stage fright I ever had was singing alone at the Oscars,” Amy said.

“Very scary,” Taraji replied. “At least you didn’t have to sing about pimps and whores.”

“You actually did it. That was the first year I was nominated, and I was like, ‘She is up there, singing at the Oscars,’” Amy responded. Taraji replied, “It was pretty scary. I had to look over everyone’s heads because it’s not like what I’m singing about is the most … you know.”
