Trish’s Trash: Celebs Who Almost Got the Part in ’90s Movies


What would Titanic be without Kate and Leo? Can you imagine someone other than Reese Witherspoon as Elle Woods in Legally Blonde? What about John Travolta as Forrest Gump. Gurl has compiled a list of celebrities who were considered for popular ’90s movie roles before casting directors went with someone else. Here are a couple of my favorites:

Alicia Silverstone – Mia Thermopolis (Anne Hathaway) in The Princess Diaries
Ashton Kutcher – Patrick Verona (Heath Ledger) in 10 Things I Hate About You
Brad Pitt – J.D. Dean (Christian Slater) in Heathers
Charlize Theron – Elle Woods (Reese Witherspoon) in Legally Blonde
Gwyneth Paltrow – Rose DeWitt Bukater (Kate Winslet) in Titanic
Matthew McConaughey – Jack Dawson (Leonardo DiCaprio) in Titanic
Johnny Depp – Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick) in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
John Travolta – Forrest Gump (Tom Hanks) in Forrest Gump
Natalie Portman – Juliet (Claire Danes) in Romeo + Juliet
Sarah Michelle Gellar – Cher Horowitz (Alicia Silverstone) in Clueless
