    John Travolta turned down Forrest Gump

    John Travolta has openly admitted in several interviews that passing on the role of Forrest Gump was one of the biggest mistakes of his career.

    He shouldn’t feel that way. It would have been a worse movie were he Forrest.

    Mark Wahlberg too. He couldn’t stomach having a scene with Ledger.

    Anjelica Huston was offered Misery, but chose The Grifters. Even though Bates won for the former, I still think Huston made the right choice.

    Kate Winslet turned down Shakespeare in love. I think she did not want to do another love story after Titanic. Bad move, if you ask me.

    Wasn’t there was also a period in between Leo & Joaquin where Bradley Cooper was discussions to play the titular role?

    I always wonder why Todd Phillips didn´t think in his friend Bradley Copper for the role of Joker

    No, the choice was always and only between those two frontrunners, DiCaprio was the first choice, he passed because of his bias against comic book films, so it went to Joaquin.

    Scarlett Johansson was considered for Rooney Mara’s role in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo but was deemed too beautiful.

    This one is insane to me because IMO Rooney Mara is one of the most beautiful actresses working today, even if not as traditionally attractive as ScarJo.
