A decade ago, Jennifer Lawrence was just trying to break into the game like any other up-and-coming actor.

The Mother! star apparently auditioned for Blake Lively's role, Serena van der Woodsen, on the hit CW teen drama, Gossip Girl, the show's creator Josh Schwartz told Vulture in an interview recently.

“We did not realize this at the time, but Jennifer Lawrence really wanted to play Serena and auditioned,” Schwartz revealed. “This story came to us secondhand, but we were told she definitely auditioned and was bummed to not get it.”

While Lawrence didn't get to star as a socialite on Manhattan's Upper East Side, things seem to have turned out just fine.

The revelation comes as Gossip Girl is celebrating its 10-year anniversary since the 2007 premiere. Earlier this summer, ET spoke to Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester, who reminisced about her time on the show.

Oh my God! There were so many awesome locations," she said, reflecting on her time playing Blair Waldorf. "I mean, I personally just had an amazing time shooting in New York on the streets."
