6 Major Movies Beyoncé Almost Starred in… But Didn’t in the End

The more we think about how talented Beyoncé is, the more unfair it seems. Like, come on! Not only is she the most nominated woman in Grammy history, but she is also the first artist to have her first six albums debut at #1 and has sold over 100 million solo albums in her career — not even counting her Destiny’s Child sales. She will always be the first black woman to ever headline Coachella and the highest-paid black recording artist of all time. And THAT is why we bow down to her. Need we say more?

But as much success as she’s had in the music industry, she isn’t afraid to make a mark in other areas as well. You’ve probably heard of Ivy Park, her activewear clothing line at Topshop, or used the music streaming service she co-owns, Tidal. And we know you’ve seen her on the big screen. She’s been acting in movies since her role as Foxxy Cleopatra in Austin Powers in Goldmember. You could even say she’s been acting since she developed her Sasha Fierce persona.

She can’t slay everything she sets her mind to, though — as hard as that is to believe — so check out these feature films she was almost in. Close, but no cigar.
