Molly Ringward—Pretty Woman
“Damn I almost beat Julia Roberts to the role just some extra smiles would have worked”
Now this is one regret that could haunt this actress for a long time, the Breakfast Club actress could have easily skyrocketed her career to the top but unfortunately turned it down opening a way for the Mona Lisa smiling Julia Roberts. Apparently, turning down this role didn’t help her career at all. I guess you can say that she was pretty unlucky
Kevin Costner—The Shawshank Redemption
“Well it was either jail or the Atlantic Ocean, so I went for the ocean”
He may have been a popular media figure in the 80’s but even Kevin Costner has suffered a devastating movie regret when he decided to star in the enormous hydroflop ‘Waterworld’ instead of the role of Andy Dufresne in the prison epic ‘The Shawshank Redemption’
Emily Blunt—Iron Man 2
“Me, a russian spy?! My name must be Evelyn Romanoff Salt”
The Looper telekinetic may have been in quite a number of successful movies but even Emily Blunt has missed a large role that could have landed her a role in a box office dominator, Iron Man 2. She was meant to star as the russian spy named Black Widow but decided to opt for the box office bomb, Guliiver’s Travels.
Sean Connery—The Lord of the Ring and The Matrix
“The name would have been Gandalf, Morpheus Gandalf”
Our popular scottish spy was apparently set to star in two blockbuster franchises that could have added kudos to his decades of cinema glory namely The Lord of the Rings and The Matrix.
