greatest Hollywood roles
The silence of the lambs- Clarice Starling
One of the most greatest Hollywood roles is Jodie Foster played the role of Clarice Starling and she was admired much. She incredibly worked in Jonathan Demme’s celebrated serial killer thriller and she was given Oscar for the best actress but you would not believe that this role was could be played by someone else than Jodie Foster. She just replaced someone and she was not the first preference of Jonathan Demme. However, Demme wanted to take Michelle Pfeiffer in his thriller series but Michelle left that concept due to the violent contents of the script. She was not feeling comfortable at all so Demme had to approach Jodie Foster secondly.
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off- Ferris Bueller
Matthew Broderick made a new record by a teen comedy series, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off but he was also not the first choice. Very first, the role was offered to Johnny Depp but he had some schedule clashes so the role was transferred to Matthew Broderick.
Bridget Jones- Bridget Jones’s Diary
Bridget Jones’s Diary gave an unforgettable character and Renee Zellweger really made that particular role her own as no one could ever do the role if she had not but Kate Winslet was the first approach by the team. After a great success of Titanic, Kate was considered the best for the role but she looked too younger as she could not fit for the 30.
Forrest Gump- Forrest Gump
Tom Hanks accepted the proposal for this role once he read the script but he was not the first approach too. Very first, John Travolta was approached for this role but he was not so interested in such a classic role so Hanks was offered that.
Legally Blonde- Elle Woods
Christina Applegate was first offered the role of Elle Woods but she was not ready to take a dumb typecast image so she dropped that down and the role went to Reese Witherspoon. After some time, Christina told that she regrets the decision but it was maybe fate.
The Wolf of Wall Street- Jordan Belford
The role was perfectly suitable for the serious actors and that is why Chris Evans and Joseph Gordon was auditioned first but at the end, Leonardo DiCaprio made that his own.
The Notebook- Allie Hamilton
The role of Allie was first approached to Ryan Gosling but Rachel McAdams finally ended up the competition and made the role perfect by getting in the cast.
Mad Max: Fury Road- Mad Max
This aggressive role was first approached to Jeremy Renner but finally Tom Hardy got up in the cast of Mad Max.
Pretty Woman- Vivian Ward
Julia Roberts no doubt has been always a pretty woman but for the role, she was actually the second choice as the preference was given to Molly Ringwald. After some time, Molly Ringwald admired Julia Roberts for the role of a pretty woman as no one could do that as she did.
Mr. and Mrs. Smith- Jane Smith
Angelina Jolie worked with Brad Pitt in Mr. and Mrs. Smith and they both got too much fame as people gave a title of “Brangelina” to the couple. Angelina Jolie has played the role of Mrs. Smith perfectly but she was the second choice as the role was considered for Nicole Kidman first.
Ghost- Sam Wheat
The role was first offered to Bruce Willis but he denied for that because he thought the concept very cheesy. The role then was sent to Patrick Swayze.
Gone Girl- Amy Dunne
The book became very popular, that is why a number of actresses like Julianne Hough, Olivia Wilde, Abbie Cornish met the director and submitted their audition tape but the role went to Rosamund Pike at last.
Wonder Woman- Diana
Gal Gadot has shown an awesome maturity while playing the role but she was approached after Kristen Stewart was considered who was not willing to have more drama after Twilight Saga. The fate should play the role sometimes and here it happened the same when Gal was chosen as the cast of Diana. If we are said to imagine about Kristen Stewart in the role of Diana, it seems a little difficult as Kristen Stewart does not suit for the role from any angle. She looks tender and immature to be suitable for the role of Diana while Gal Gadot looks a perfect personality for the role as she can fight strongly like Diana. Maybe Kristen denied for the role but sometimes things happen for the reason so Stewart was left like so and fate made Gadot victorious to achieve the fame and success all around the world.
10 Things I Hate About You- Patrick Verona
Auston Kutcher auditioned for the role but he was beaten out by Heath Ledge for the cast. However, he was not liked for the role that time but it seemed better after the movie when people liked Heath Ledge.
The Princess Diaries- Mia Thermopolis
Anne Hathaway seemed the real royal blood while playing the role of Mia Thermopolis but before her, Cameron Diaz, Katie Holmes, Kirsten Dunst, and Kate Hudson were approached. These actresses denied playing the role of Mia Thermopolis because they did not want to do such a childish character but it happened for the goodness. Anne Hathaway seems real royal blood during her character of the princess and she has done the act as no one could be able to do like her.
Almost Famous- Russell Hammond
Brad Pitt was considered for the role as a first choice but somehow Billy Crudup replaced him. If we imagine Brad Pitt as a rock star, it does not match his personality so we can say that fate played own and chose the suitable one for the role.
