Celebrities Who Turned Down Famous Movie Roles
It can be hard to imagine another famous actor or actress in a popular movie. Because not all filmmakers get their first choices during casting, there are a number of examples where a different star could have played a memorable character if they had been available or said yes.
The film Pretty Woman for instance had a few famous faces decline to act in it. For the role of "Edward", Al Pacino and Burt Reynolds both said no. As for the iconic role of "Vivian", Karen Allen, Molly Ringwald, Meg Ryan, Michelle Pfeiffer and others turned down offers. In the end, we are glad that Richard Gere and Julia Roberts were cast and to hear of other times when a famous actor said no to what would become a famous character, watch the video above.
