Appearing alongside Mary J. Blige, Jessica Chastain, Allison Janney and Saoirse Ronan, the actresses were asked by moderator Matthew Belloni, “Is there a line from one of your films, one of your characters, that sticks with you?” Emma, in typical fashion, gave the best and most amazing answer. “’Piss off, Quiznos.’ That’s from Easy A. I shove a Quiznos guy and say, ‘Piss off, Quiznos.’”
J. Law then jumped in and revealed that she auditioned for the part of Olive Penderghast, which Emma ended up famously playing. “I auditioned for Easy A. I wanted it so bad!” Emma responded, laughing, “Well, guess what? You didn’t get it. You didn’t get it because you suck!” Jennifer picked up on the joke and yelled, “Outside!”
Of course there are no hard feelings between the two. They routinely praised each other throughout the rest of the interview. We’re sure that Jennifer would’ve been amazing in Easy A, but the image of Emma singing “Pocketful of Sunshine” in the shower will always hold a special place in my heart.
