‘As if!’ 10 Actresses Who Rejected Hit Movie Roles

We can’t imagine anyone but Sandra Bullock in the role of Leigh Anne Tuohy from The Blind Side, can you? Probably not, but if Julia Roberts hadn’t turned the role down first, that movie could have had an entirely different outcome. (Like maybe another Oscar win?)

Julia isn’t the only actress who’s passed on a role and it’s gone to someone else. In some cases, it’s probably for the best — but in others we can’t help but wonder how that feature film would have turned out differently had the famous starlet said yes.

Picking the right role can make or break a career, and this list of actresses who turned down roles may just surprise you. From Basic Instinct to Thelma and Louise, some actresses are definitely kicking themselves for turning down these great roles! Check them out.
