Will Smith The Matrix

Can you imagine anyone other than Jeanu Reeves wooooowwwwwing their way through the Matrix? Although not exactly the best actor of his generation it’s hard to say that he did a bad job. Neo and Keanu fit together pretty well.

And Will Smith thinks the same, meaning he holds no regrets over turning down the role of Neo.

He has been quoted as saying “That’s the role Keanu was born to play. When I watch the movie and I see the choices he made, there are a hundred occasions when I think, ‘I would have messed that up.'”

Would you have liked to see Will in the role? I think he would have done pretty good.

Molly Ringwald Pretty Woman

Pretty Woman is a pretty decent film by most people’s standards (Ok, amazing for many) and much of that is due to the performance of a fresh faced Julia Roberts.

She brought an innocent to the role of the street worker, you felt for her and sort of understood her predicament, she even had morals! Something not really shown for people in her line of work much before that time.

However it may have been Molly Ringwald playing the part! The girl was pretty popular back then and would have no doubt helped the movie but I prefer the Julia choice! Molly was also said to have turned down the role of Molly in Ghost and a part in scream!

Thomas Jane Mad Men

Don Draper is Josh Hamm and Josh Hamm is Don Draper, the pair just fit! Somehow the mind cannot imagine anyone else fitting into the role.

But it may have been different, Josh Hamm revealed back in 2011 that Thomas Jane had originally been offered the role!

Hamm was talking to Marc Maron in his WTF Podcast

“I started, literally, on the very, very bottom — I couldn’t have had less heat on me,” said Hamm, whose biggest credit pre-Mad Men was a minor role on Providence. “Nobody knew who I was. The casting directors didn’t know who I was. I wasn’t on anybody’s lists. … The funny thing was, I think they went to Thomas Jane for it, and they were told that Thomas Jane does not do television. Now starring in Hung, by the way.”

Just imagine :)

Harrison Ford fear of snakes

It’s very obvious that Indiana Jones is absolutely petrified of snakes, it’s even a plot point at times.

However what about the man behind the fedora? Is Ford scared of snakes? Well apparently not and Indy’s fear may well be a bit of an in-joke.

Wikipedia says that “They also jokingly reversed Ford’s knowledge of reptiles into Jones’ fear of snakes.” and he spent time as a boy scout of America, also a character trait of young Indy.

Tom Selleck Indiana Jones

We all know that casting didn’t always go to the guy that was originally intended for the role and in a slightly different world many movies would have an entirely different feel.

Take Indiana Jones, back in 1981 a screen test was carried out with Tom Selleck and George Lucas has said it went very well. So well in fact that Selleck was offered the role.

However the 69 year old sadly couldn’t take it, he had signed a contract with Universal for the new show Magnum P.I and was contractually out!

Due to a 6 month writers strike he would have been able to do Indy and Magnum! Imagine a world where Selleck was both of those guys!!!!

Would Ford had made it too without Indy under his belt?

Who knows but it’s fun to think about.

Bruce Springsteen + mostly vegetarian diet

Bruce Springsteen is still rocking hard into his 60s. His famed stage performances have not dwindled and he still puts in 3 hour sets, crowd surfs and just shows who is the boss!

However he has to work for all this and it’s said that he runs 6 miles a day and lives drug free with a mostly vegetarian diet!

Now, that’s someone worth taking note of! He looks amazing.

Helen Mirren been on a diet my whole life

Helen Mirren has been a sex symbol since the late 60s and still carries that through into her 60s now!

At 60 she was snapped looking great in a bikini, although she claims the shot was pure fluke!

However she says she has done nothing special to keep her body the way it is but admits she has been on a diet pretty much her whole life!

That’s fairly demanding but it’s been her career to do so.

The Daily Record has some quotes from her below:

“I don’t know,” she laughed, embarrassed at even having to even think about her secret to being a sex symbol.

“I just carry on my own sweet way. I learned fairly early in my life, that you are two things – you are what other people see you as being, and you are what you see yourself as being, and you will never see what other people see.

“You will never see what I’m looking at because I’m looking at you, and you will never see yourself as I see you, in your whole life.

“You are two people for the whole of your life and I came to terms with that a long time ago, so I let people get on with it. I’m just who I am and I deal with the person that I know I am.”

Kim Cattrall + diet since 1974

Kim Cattrall is heading closer to 60 now but still looks amazing. However she has spoken about it and has said that it gets harder to stay in shape as she gets older and that she has been on a diet since 1974! It’s touch to keep looking good it seems.

Helen Hunt trivial things like being naked fade away

Helen Hunt is over 50 now and still looks stunning!

She has been seen in recent years surfing and looking amazing and back in 2012 she told IndieWire

“It’s getting too late in my life to care about the small things,”
“It’s getting too late to not be brave, to not live my life fully, to not try to be an artist. Trivial things like how nice your hotel room is, or if you have to be naked for a while, they fade away.”

Good for Helen!!!

Sheryl Crow + I’m just totally buff from lifting my kids

Sheryl Crow has won grammy’s and hearts as a well known rock star but at over 50 she still looks amazing and the life of sex, drugs and rock n roll hasn’t exactly hit her looks!

But she keeps herself healthy and says she and her family eat well, local and organic.

She hits the gym but kids have pulled her away from running, a sport she said she was once very active in.

However she says it all balances out and that now “I’m just totally buff from lifting my kids”! That’s pretty funny!
