Watch These Actors Audition For the Roles That Would Change Their Lives Forever

Before your favourite stars became household names, they had to audition for roles, just like every other actor or actress working in Hollywood. Luckily, someone has pieced together the rare audition tapes of A-list celebrities trying to land the roles that would eventually change their careers. From Emma Stone's adorable reading for Easy A to Selena Gomez and Miley Cyrus's sweet Disney Channel auditions — these clips give a great insight into what stars were like before they really hit it big. Granted some stars, like Martin Freeman and Jim Carrey, were already well-known by the time that they made their clips and a few auditions were for roles that went to someone else, but it's still fun to watch them prepare for the roles of a lifetime.
