The 10th anniversary of Gossip Girl has inspired all kinds of nostalgic reflection from the people behind the scenes, including the revelation that Blake Lively originally turned down the career-launching role of Serena van der Woodsen. She changed her mind, of course, but she wasn鈥檛 the only now-A-list actress who auditioned: Jennifer Lawrence apparently went after the part too.

鈥淲e did not realize this at the time, but Jennifer Lawrence really wanted to play Serena and auditioned,鈥 Josh Schwartz, the creator of Gossip Girl, revealed to Vulture.

Lawrence obviously went on to have an incredible career, but we can鈥檛 help but wonder how Hollywood history would have been changed if she鈥檇 gotten the part over Lively. Seriously, who knows what might have been if JLaw had gotten her big break on Gossip Girl? Maybe Lively would have ended up as X-Men鈥檚 Mystique.

鈥淭his story came to [me and GG co-creator Stephanie Savage] secondhand, but we were told she definitely auditioned and was bummed to not get it,鈥 Schwartz added. (Lawrence would have been 16 years old at the time, so a starring gig on Gossip Girl could have solidified her status as a Hollywood 鈥淚t girl鈥 just the way it did for Lively.)

While Schwartz said he doesn鈥檛 recall her audition 鈥 鈥淲e can鈥檛 remember if we saw it or not. It was 10 years ago, and she would鈥檝e been how old, 15?鈥 鈥 he revealed that it likely wouldn鈥檛 have mattered if Lawrence had nailed it or failed it as he and Savage were already set on Lively for the role.

But, oh, what could have been.
