Let’s have this teeny-tiny bit of relatability, or at the very least, have some compassion for the actor who obviously had no idea what a wolverine was. And now, in no particular order, here is a list of the 11 movie auditions that celebrities would rather forget.

“Tom Holland failed his Star Wars audition because he couldn’t control his laughter at the droid,” said the casting director. Holland was in the running for the role of Finn, but his chances were eliminated when he was required to perform alongside a woman who played a droid. “So as I was doing all of this, I was telling everyone, ‘We have to get back to the ship!’” Furthermore, she was leaving. “Bleep, bloop, bloop, bleep, bloop,’ I just couldn’t stop laughing. I thought it was very funny”

3. George Clooney

George Clooney gave his performance as a drunk character an audition by getting absolutely hammered. Clooney’s audition for the role of a drunk in Francis Ford Coppola’s adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula was criticized for being too realistic. After Clooney’s audition, Coppola called George Clooney’s agent to express her shock that the actor had shown up to the audition in a completely inebriated state.

4. Kevin Hart

During his audition for Saturday Night Live, Kevin Hart performed a character impersonation of an unknown person. Hart played former San Antonio Spurs point guard Avery Johnson, and it was clear to him that Lorne Michaels had no idea who that was.

5. Nicholas Hoult

Nicholas Hoult was unaware that he was required to speak with a Hispanic accent for the role of Prince Caspian in The Chronicles of Narnia. They asked him during his audition if he could do it with an accent similar to that of Puss in Boots from the movie Shrek. I was doing the scene, but in my head, before saying each line, I was trying to do my Antonio Banderas impression, saying (in a Despaeroda voice), ‘I am Price Caspian!’ It was a terrible experience. It reminded me more of Borat, to be honest.

6. Jake Gyllenhaal

No one told Jake Gyllenhaal he was supposed to prepare an accent for his Lord of the Rings audition. Gyllenhaal went into the audition completely clueless about what was expected of him. When Peter Jackson saw me in the scene, he reportedly turned to me and said, “You are the worst actor I have ever seen.” Have you been informed by anyone that you are expected to speak with an accent? I was like, ‘No.’ And he was like, ‘Well. Fire your agents’

7. Charlie Cox

Charlie Cox gave an audition for a role playing a blind person. The Daredevil actor seemed to have become So used to playing the blind character that he audited for a (speculated) role in Solo: A Star Wars Movie by acting blind. At the halfway point, the casting director pulled me aside and asked, “Why director pulled me aside and asked, Why aren’t you looking at me?” I didn’t know what to say. Because the only thing I had been doing for the past two years was playing someone who is blind, I suddenly became aware that I had developed a pattern of avoiding making eye contact.

8. Chris Evans

Chris Evans was a ball of nerves auditioning for Ben Affleck’s Gone Baby Gone. After seeing Affleck for the first time at the audition, Evans experienced an immediate case of star-struckness. The first thing I said was, “Hey… am I gonna be okay where I parked?’ After that, he asked, “Where did you park?” I then responded by saying, “At one of the meters.” And in response, he asked, “Did you put any money in it?” And I said, ‘Yeah.’ When it came to that, I was completely pissed off!

9. Bradley Cooper

Bradley Cooper auditioned for The Green Lantern by giving the title character the same voice as Christian Bale’s Batman. Cooper said it looked like a bad SNL sketch. I have no idea what the problem was! After donning the disguise, the director instructed me to act naturally and carry on a conversation. And I was like.. (in a deep Batman voice) ‘Listen, Sally, we’re going to have to take your family away if you don’t listen to me!’

10. Dakota Johnson

At one point, Dakota Johnson took her shirt off during an audition, despite the fact that she was not required to. The actress claimed that it was the most humiliating audition she had ever experienced in her life. “I got really into the scene, and it was dramatic, and I took my shirt off, and then you didn’t have to do that. ” “I got really into the scene, and it was dramatic. Then, once it was over, they said things like, “Uh, that was awesome.” That was very nice,’ and I responded, ‘Thank you, and then I had to pick up my shirt off the ground while still talking to them and putting it back on.’ It was not the appropriate response.

11. Robert Pattinson

During his audition for the role of Megatron in Transformers 2, Robert Pattinson pretended to be American. As in, he literally tried to sell the filmmakers on him being American, even though they already knew he was English. “I’ve always had the impression that if you say you’re English, people will judge your attempt at an American accent……. While they were listening to my background story about being from Denver, they were thinking to themselves, “What is this guy on?”
