    The rules are:

    – Movie and year
    – Role
    – Name of the actress who had to drop out due to pregnancy
    – Actor who got the part: …… better / worse / same

    I´ll start

    – Closer (2004)
    – Anna
    – Cate Blanchett
    – Julia Roberts (worse)

    Though Roberts did a good job, I believe that Blanchett would have been better

    Your turn, folks 🙂

    -Babylon (2022).                                                  
    -Main female character is said to be inspired by the actress Clara Bow.
    -Emma Stone.
    -Margot Robbie.      

    It obviously hasn’t been released, but I’m glad Robbie will be in the film.

    per Mike Nichols Biography, Cate Blanchett got a nice payout out of Closer. Since, they couldn’t fire her Bc of pregnancy n they didn’t think her body would be nude ready for scene. Then it was between Julia Roberts and Nicole Kidman. Julia was chosen Bc he thought she fit in visually better with other 3 actors.

    great book to read.

    Wow, didn’t know that! I wonder if Kate would’ve still won for Revolutionary Road or remain Oscarless till this day.

    She almost certainly would have won for RR, the better role.

    A pregnant Bette Davis dropped out of Possessed. Rival Joan Crawford took the role and the Oscar nom. She arguably would have taken the award too had she not just won a couple of years before.

    I saw James L. Brooks speak at a TCM event. He said he wrote Broadcast News for Debra Winger (sort of surprising since I thought they didn’t get along on Terms of Endearment.)

    Couldn’t find a replacement, was about to settle on someone not quite right (I wonder who? Anyone know?) and somebody suggested he see Raising Arizona and there he discovered Holly Hunter.

    Hunter was great but I think Winger would have been pretty good too.

    I read somewhere that it was Catherine O’Hara!

    Melanie Griffith had been cast as Kit in Bertolucci’s 1990 film, The Sheltering Sky, but dropped out due to pregnancy and was replaced by Deborah Winger. The baby Griffith was pregnant with grew up to become an actress— Dakota Johnson.

    The Reader was first offered to Winslet but she passed I believe Bc would shoot at same time as R. Road. Then Nicole Kidman dropped out Bc of pregnancy n movie got pushed and Winslet did it. She would of won for R. Road anyways

    The role of Bellatrix Lestrange in Harry Potter films was for Helen McCrory (May she RIP) but was passed due to pregnancy. Enter Helena Bonham Carter and it was one of her iconic screen roles. McCrory later joined as Narcissa Malfoy.
