Jessica Biel is gutted that she missed out on The Notebook.

The A-Team actress auditioned for the role of Allie Hamilton, which Rachel McAdams was chosen for, propelling her into stardom and went on to be a box office hit.

"The Notebook - that's one that I wanted so badly," she told US Elle.

Jessica reckoned her bloody performance probably didn't go down too well with co-star Ryan Gosling and director Nick Cassavetes.

"I was in the middle of shooting Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and I auditioned with Ryan Gosling in my trailer - covered in blood. Nick Cassavetes put me through the wringer in an interesting, excitingly creative way. But there's a million that get away. We're gluttons for punishment. It's just rejection," she added.

The 29-year-old admitted she would consider giving up acting.

"Absolutely. I'd love to write. I wrote a lot of short stories and poetry when I was a kid," she revealed.

"That was my creative outlet. I've written a short film, and I write poetry."

A brilliant idea for operating on a shoestring budget will come. At that point, nothing will stand between you and success. Stay calm and take things one step at a time.More
