Actors Who Turned Down Iconic Roles

Whenever you think of certain movies, iconic roles are tied to specific actors. When you think about Jack and Rose from Titanic, you don’t picture characters; you picture Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio. This isn’t our fault; it’s just the way the human mind works. We will hate real people just because they play a character that we don’t like. We’ll have puppy love crushes simply because we fell in love with the actor’s role in a teen movie.

But have you ever really thought about what would happen if entirely different actors played these characters? Almost every role known to man was once to close to belonging to someone else. That’s why we’re here to talk about actors who turned down iconic roles!

Chantelle

Article writerChantelle

Chantelle took to the written word like a fish takes to water. That is to say, she found herself immersed in literature from before she was born. She’s been known to tell her friends all about how she can still remember the passages she heard her mother read to her when she was in the womb - Emily Dickinson, Jane Austen, and a bit of Hunter S. Thompson thrown in to balance it out. Whether she’s whipping up pithy one-liners to tease your brain or busy working on her second novel (the first one is available on Amazon under a pen name she refuses to disclose), Chantelle has continued to keep her feet wet with words, as it were. You’re sure to get a kick out of her giggle-worthy explanations and outrageous hints, and still come away feeling like you’ve just expanded your knowledge base.
