18 Apr – Kaley Cuoco recently admitted that she had wanted to be in Rian Johnson's "Knives Out 2" and was quite wrecked not to get it.

The actress, who sat down for an interview to promote the second season of her hit HBO series, "The Flight Attendant", shared her said disappointment when asked if there was ever a role she wanted but couldn't get.


"I was convinced [the part was mine]. Kate Hudson ended up getting it. But I was so convinced that my bags were packed for Greece. And then I didn't get it," she said.

Cuoco admitted that she was devastated after finding out about it, although she rarely felt such a way over roles.

"I had done chemistry reads, I had done Zooms. And I didn't get it. I cried and I cried all night long. And it went to Kate, who's great," she said.

However, Cuoco said that it was all fine after she got a call for a different movie - "Meet Cute", which co-stars Pete Davidson.

"And when I did, I said, 'This is the most magical little script.' And I would've never gotten it if I [got] Knives. I couldn't be happier with how things turned out," she said, adding that she hopes to audition for "Knives Out 3".
