When it comes to actors and movies, directors play a big part in casting and they often have a particular actor in mind for a project; however, the directors’ first choice doesn’t also take the part and these actors sometimes have major regrets about that. Other actors could care less, however, as their careers flourish in spite of rejecting these major roles. Here are 13 celebrities who rejected major movie roles – can you imagine these movies with different leads?!?
13. Molly Ringwald
1980’s “it girl,” Molly Ringwald turned down leads in “Pretty Woman” and “Ghost.” Rejecting these two roles did not help her career at all, but did they help cement Julie Roberts and Demi Moore as two leading ladies in Hollywood.
