Any movies you wish Rachel had accepted? Any movies you were glad she ended up not being in?

Sorry for the delay. I finally had time to work on this and put this up.

Thanks for staring this thread, Belle!

Let's see... I'm so glad she wasn't part of Valentine's Day! God, that movie was horrid! Ditto for Fantastic Four. That was just cheesy.

It would've been awesome if she'd been in The Devil Wears Prada, Iron Man, The Dark Knight, Casino Royale, and Inception!!!!! That would be a dream come true.

I just watched the trailer for Black Swan. It looks really dark, intense and interesting. Both Natalie's and Mila's roles look very interesting. I wish Rachel would go for darker roles like these!

(As a side note, didn't know Vincent Cassel was in it, too. )

I agree about Fantastic 4. I'm glad she didn't have to do the sequel...it was a lot worse than the first. And personally, I find Jessica Alba's acting very distracting in that one. It would have been nice to see Rachel in a big ensemble such as Valentine's Day, but the character she auditioned for was totally unnecessary to the storyline. She was there for maybe 5 minutes? And she didn't do much.

Black Swan does look really good!! I would have love to see Rachel do something like that. Ballet + thriller? I'm so there.

Out of all of the movies I've seen from that list, I would have liked to see her take on the roles in Devil Wears Prada and Inception. That would have been amazing.

Wow, thanks for this thread!! Love the topic

I would have loved to see her in Black Swan with Natalie . The movie looks so interesting!!
Then, I like the idea of her being in Casino Royale. The role of Vesper seemed perfect for her

I would love to see Rachel in a big ensemble movie, too, Belle, but something better and more substantial than that god-awful Valentine's Day.

Black Swan looks so interesting! It would be interesting for Rachel to play Natalie's character!

I agree, Val. Rachel would've been great as Vesper. Eva Green was pretty perfect though.

I dont want her acting on a big movie. It's weird but I wouldn't like if she were getting too much attention, like amanda seyfried, megan fox, kristen stewart etc.

Of those movies, i'd like to see her on "get smart", is so funny.

What a great idea for a thread! Thanks for starting one.

I'm glad she didn't accept some of those roles. But I would loved seeing her in some others. Maybe I would've watched those movies if she was in them

You're all welcome.

I noticed a lot of the roles are franchise or superhero movies. I guess she finally liked Sherlock Holmes, but I would have rather seen her choose some other 'big' movies like Iron Man instead.

Get Smart was really funny!

Wow - great idea of a thread!

I am also glad she wasn't in Valentine's Day - awful, awful, awful movie, imo.

I'm sad she didn't do Devil Wears Prada or Inception.

Were these all roles that she turned down or did she audition for some and didn't get them?

I wouldn't mind her being in 'big' movies really. As long as it's a good movie. A bit more exposure to larger audiences doesn't hurt.

I loved Get Smart! It was hilarious.

I just wished her role was more substantial in Sherlock Holmes. I would've loved it if she'd chosen Iron Man! And The Dark Knight! Then she'd finally be in a Nolan movie plus she'd be working with Christian Bale!

Ditto, Gabriela. I loved Prada! She could've easily been great in either Anne's or Emily's role. Her being in Inception would've been amazing.

I don't know... I think they're just rumors. I can't say for sure though.

I loved Prada too. Too bad she didn't do that one. I think she would've been amazing in it

Some roles she was offered directly like Iron Man, MI3, Casino Royale and Devil. Other roles she auditioned for were VD and F4.

The rest are just rumors.

Devil would have been amazing! I love that movie.

Those roles were offered to her directly, and she turned them down?! I'm pulling my hair over her turning down Iron Man, Prada, and Casino Royale!

She auditioned for Valentine's Day and Fantastic Four?! And lost them to Jessica Alba?! That's such a joke that Jessica won... she's such a bad actress.
