'mother!' New York PremiereNot spotted: Jennifer Lawrence in "Gossip Girl."

The Oscar winner 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.

As "Gossip Girl" creator Josh Schwartz told Vulture, "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."

Schwartz wasn't even sure he saw her actual audition. "We can't remember if we saw it or not. It was 10 years ago, and she would've been how old, 15?"

(Actually, Lawrence was 16 a the time. Lively was 19.)

Lawrence lost out on the role, but several years later, landed a starring role in the drama "Winter's Bone," which led to her first Oscar nomination. So, XOXO, it all worked out in the end!
