10 Movie Stars Who Were Nearly Fired from Their Films
As movie fans, we don’t often think about what happens behind the scenes of our favorite films. But, the truth of the matter is, it’s not always sunshine and rainbows. Movie sets can be full of conflict among writers, producers and directors, and sometimes it can get really messy when an actor or actress arrives on set with a long list of unreasonable, diva-like demands.
Even though your favorite movie stars can do no wrong in your eyes, you would be surprised to know that many of them have actually stirred up a crazy amount of drama on the set of some of their biggest films. Many of these actors have even gotten to the point of almost getting fired from their roles for all of the crazy shenanigans they’ve pulled. In hindsight, all we can say is that we’re so glad that wasn’t the case. Like, who knows who we would’ve wound up with if they had to recast iconic characters like Edward Cullen in Twilight and the incomparable Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean?!
We know… you’re shuddering at the thought of a world in which your favorite stars never got to play their most iconic roles. Us too! But for now, sit back, relax and check out our list of ten movie stars who almost got the axe:
It's completely inconceivable that anyone else on this planet would be able to take on the role of Twilight teen heartthrob Edward Cullen besides Robert Pattinson... but it was almost a reality!
While rumors swirled that it was Twilight's creator, Stephenie Meyer, that Rob didn't get along with, the real problem was actually his "method acting."
RPattz told Daily Mail, "I was so determined to make it serious... I was fighting with everybody in control all the time to the point where I almost got fired."
Earlier this week, he spoke with the New York Times and admitted that it had gotten so bad that his agents had to fly out to set him straight. Thank goodness that seemed to have worked because we're still gushing over Rob all these years later. *swoon*
