Actors Who Almost Got the Part

At a roundtable for The Hollywood Reporter, Jones recalled the time she had to pole dance in an audition, "One of the worst moments in my entire life. It was an audition for Coyote Ugly, my second audition ever. I'd done the reading for the acting part and then Jerry Bruckheimer wanted me to come in and dance… on top of the table. Yes. They said, ''You're going to dance to Prince's Kiss. You're going to pole dance, but there is no pole.' And I just turned beet red. It was awful, and he said something like, 'Honey, you did a great reading, but you've got no rhythm.' I called my agent and said, 'I don't want to do this anymore.'"
