I don’t know. There was something about it. They probably wanted me to audition and I didn’t feel like doing it, or maybe they wanted me to jump through hoops and I didn’t feel like doing it,” Posey said. ”Honestly, I just didn’t care about it enough to be grounded in it… And she won the Academy Award! Isn’t that funny?” [Contact Music]
