Evan Rachel Wood - Wood Learned To Handle Rejection After Vampire Snub

Evan Rachel Wood has Kirsten Dunst to thank for helping her get used to rejection in Hollywood, because she became "stronger" after losing out to the actress for the role of a child bloodsucker in Interview With The Vampire.
The pair was pitted against each other for the sought-after part of youthful Claudia in the hit 1994 film alongside Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise.
Dunst walked away with the role and won rave reviews for her breakthrough performance, and Wood, who was just five years old when she auditioned for the part, admits she was left "heartbroken".
She tells Britain's Stella magazine, "I was heartbroken. But that's how I learnt to deal with disappointment - it made me stronger and I never got that upset again."
