There’s nothing worse than knowing you could’ve been in an award-winning movie. Just ask Emma Watson and Miles Teller. Both actors were being considered for “La La Land,” but word is that they both lost the roles for being "too demanding."
An insider said that Emma initially wouldn’t commit. Then she started making crazy demands, like rehearsals in London. The studio tried to work with her, but she didn’t feel like the film was right for her. As for Miles, they offered him $4-million bucks, but he wanted $6-million. After all that, the studio cast Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling jumped at the chance to work with her again.
Another source said, “Both Miles and Emma [screwed] themselves over for not doing ‘La La Land.’ Now that it’s winning all the awards, they’re freaking out and looking for someone else to blame.”
