Tara Reid reveals that she didn’t know who the Coen Brothers were when she auditioned for The Big Lebowski, in her new uInterview.

Reid said she “had no clue” that Jeff Bridges‘ role would become iconic.

“Like, I didn’t even really know who the Coen Brothers were. I mean I was absolutely clueless,” she told uInterview Founder Erik Meers. “And I remember going into the waiting room, and there was Charlize Theron and Liv Tyler, and I’m like, ‘There’s no way I’m going to get this part.’ And then they called up, and I got the part and I was like, ‘Oh my God!’ It was crazy.”

“And then we did Urban Legend actually,” she said. “And then I was in Canada shooting that one, and then while I was shooting we get the phone call for American Pie, so I had to fly from Canada to audition for American Pie and then I got that, and then from there that’s when I got the three picture deal with Universal.”
