1. Julia Roberts plays Vivian Ward in Pretty Woman but the role was originally offered to Molly Ringwald. Molly has said that she regrets turning the role down.

Big mistake. Big. Huge. 

2. Julia was not a very well known actress at the time, and she only landed the role because so many other actresses (besides Molly) turned it down. Among them included: Winona Ryder, Meg Ryan, Karen Allen, Jennifer Connelly and Michelle Pfeiffer. 


3. Edward Lewis is played by Richard Gere, but he actually almost turned down the role. It wasn't until Julia slid him a post-it note with "please say yes" written on it that he accepted the part.

4. Other actors that were up for the role of Edward Lewis were: Christopher Reeve, Daniel Day-Lewis, Denzel Washington, and Al Pacino.
