Almost Got the Part

Cara Delevingne

Cara Delevingne's acting career almost took off before we ever saw her on the socialite scene. The supermodel revealed to W magazine that she auditioned for Tim Burton's 2010 film Alice In Wonderland.

"My interpretation of Alice was a little crazy. I overplayed it -- the way a young girl would overplay all her emotions," she admitted. "I sent my tape off, and then I was at a wedding and this woman came over to me. She said, 'You don't know me, but I know exactly who you are (it was was Lili Zanuck, the wife of Richard Zanuck, the film's producer). She told me that they all loved my tape! And I went to Tim Burton's house and met with him. I didn't get the part, but that experience lit a fire in me."

The part of Alice ended up going to Mia Wasikowska.
