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

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

Attention Gossip Girl fans: you're going to want to hear this!

But her career could've had a completely different trajectory had one of her teenage auditions worked out.

Josh Schwartz, creator of The CW's hit teen drama, told Vulture that Jennifer Lawrence, 27, auditioned for the part of Serena van der Woodsen back in her teen years.

The Oscar victor and "mother!" star auditioned for the ritzy teen drama, but didn't land the lead role of the glamorous Serena van der Woodsen, which eventually went to Blake Lively. Needless to say, this was well before Lawrence had broken through with her Oscar-nominated performance in 2010's Winter's Bone, and for that reason, Schwartz doesn't even remember whether he saw the then-unknown 16-year-old's tape or not. "This story came to us secondhand, but we were told she definitely auditioned and was bummed to not get it", said Schwartz.

Jennifer Lawrence is one of the most decorated actresses in Hollywood.

Although we loved Lively as Serena - she played her complex but likeable socialite character to a tee - Lawrence would've been an interesting choice for the role.
