Role: Leigh Anne Tuohy in The Blind Side (2009)
Played by: Sandra Bullock
Before Sandra Bullock was cast as feisty mom and activist Leigh Anne Tuohy in the box-office smash The Blind Side, movie execs wanted Julia Roberts to star. After Roberts turned down the role to make room for her ensemble rom-com Valentine's Day instead, 20th Century Fox reportedly tried to alter the script and change the lead to a male! Good thing Sandra Bullock was there to save the day; though she took a major pay-cut to do the flick, the backend bonuses from the film made her one of Hollywood’s highest paid actresses (and an Oscar winner!).
You’ll never guess the surprising parts these fit celebs passed up!
Titanic starring Gwyneth Paltrow? Pretty Woman without Julia Roberts? These films just wouldn’t be the same if directors got their first-round picks.
