'Gossip Girl' rejection was end of the world: Lily Collins

Los Angeles: 'Mirror Mirror' star Lily Collins has spoken about trying out for the TV series 'Gossip Girl', saying she was initially devastated not to win a role.

The 25-year-old actress has auditioned for the American teen drama television series, reported a magazine.

"I tested for 'Gossip Girl'. I wanted to be in it so badly, I thought at the time it was the end of the world," Collins said.

Reflecting on the positives that came from it, she said, "Well I would have got pigeon-holed, have had to move to New York, leave high school and be signed away for six years.

"I wouldn't have done the films I've done, and everything would have been so different."
