The internets are pretty jizzed right now about the fact that Saoirse Ronan auditioned for Star Wars Episode VII, as revealed in the Empire podcast
, but nobody seems to have picked up on her most revealing comment: "Yeah, I did [audition for Star Wars Episode VII]… I mean, everyone did. Everyone has auditioned for it." In a Shiznit exclusive, we spoke to literally everyone about their Ep 7 auditions, and here are just some of their remarkable stories...
Just to be clear, these are the guys that we want to see in the biggest action blockbuster film of 2015, right? Ok, good. And you're definitely sure about that? Ok fine. No, no reason. (via Reddit)
