The Actresses That Almost Got the Part
eah. I still read gurl.com sometimes. It was an integral part of my youth and it still has those awesome quizzes (“Are You a Secret Badass?” I don’t know, why don’t I take this little quiz to find out?). Those reasons are all legitimate, but the main reason I still get my gurl.com on is for their eye-catching articles.
My most recent gurl.com find? “15 Actresses Almost Cast as Our Fave Leading Ladies.” I don’t know how the site got the scoop but there are life-shattering revelations. Or at least 10 minute-shattering revelations when you try to imagine Cher from Clueless being anyone other than Alicia Silverstone.
Check out the actresses who almost nabbed some of Hollywood’s most coveted roles and try to imagine an alternate universe where Mischa Barton was finally cast in a popular TV show and Regina George looks a lot more like Karen. The face swap can be a little creepy but it’s impressive how well some of them fit!
