Actress Connie Britton missed out on playing Tom Cruise's love interest in "Jerry Maguire," despite winning over casting directors at her audition.
Bing: Britton on 'Nashville'
The 45-year-old "Friday Night Lights" star was ready for her breakout movie role in the Cameron Crowe film, but the director picked Renee Zellweger as his leading lady instead. She tells the New York Times Sunday Magazine that Crowe assured her she was perfect for the role after she auditioned with Cruise, but the director explained he had one more young actress to screen test.
"It was heartbreak," Britton said. "Maybe I was too tall."
Oh ....I don't think telling someone the story of losing the role necessarily means she can't get over it or isn't over it. You mean to tell me you never mention or talk about things that happened throughout your life to people even things that happened years ago??/ Cause I sure do.....has nothing to do with not being over something.....it's just called making conversation...LOL..did you ever consider that maybe the interviewer asked her about it??
