I have to say that I didn`t ever really see it as rejection, per se, and I don`t know why. I guess if I saw it as rejection, then I would allow myself time to focus on something that seemed negative, instead of realizing, I have an audition tomorrow," and I was auditioning a lot, and, "If I focus on why I didn`t get that, then I`m not going to be able to be present and work on this." At that time it was easier for me to let go of the past and just move on. Although there were so many times when it didn`t mean I didn`t get depressed if I didn`t get something that I really wanted. I mean, I`m human, and I absolutely would get bummed out, especially if I worked really hard on something, and it came right down to me and someone else. But I`d try to get feedback. Was there something that I could have done differently? Was it something I can work on the future for the next job? And try to gain a positive from it? And sometimes it wasn`t anything I`d done. It was just the blue-eyed girl looked better with the brown-eyed boy. You can`t change that; you can`t control that." - On getting rejected for roles

The others are Luise Rainer for The Great Ziegfeld (1936) and The Good Earth (1937); Vivien Leigh for Gone with the Wind (1939) and A Streetcar Named Desire (1951); Helen Hayes for The Sin of Madelon Claudet (1931) and Airport (1970); Sally Field for Norma Rae (1979) and Places in the Heart (1984); and Kevin Spacey for The Usual Suspects (1995) and American Beauty (1999).
