New York, Apr 20 (ANI): Hollywood actress Drew Barrymore may be a huge celebrity but she too has faced rejection.

When director Michael Sucsy was making the flick ‘Grey Gardens’, he was suggested Barrymore’s name, but he thought she was not right for the role.

“One of the producers had mentioned Drew’s name and I was like, ‘Nah, she’s not right,” the New York Post quoted Michael, as telling Movieline.com.

However, Michael was pushed further and Drew was finally auditioned for the role and she won it.

The flick is based on the life stories of the eccentric aunt and first cousin of Jackie Onassis. (ANI)
