Salma Hayek

  1. Jennifer Lopez, Selena, 1997.      Although positive of the film's success, Salma passed on playing the slain singer out of, well, decency. "It's unnecessary, maybe redundant. I mean, she just died, she's still very present..."  The only biopic she was interested  in was her own about painter  Frida Kahlo -  45 years dead when Salma finally incarnated her in Frida, 1999. In the biopic about singer Selena Quintanilla-Perez, J-Lo was the first Latina actress to be paid $1m for a movie. By 2005, she was on $15m for Monster-in-Law.
  2. Catherine Zeta-Jones, The Mask of Zorro, 1997.      Cruz and Swedish model Scorupco Shakira passed after director Robert Rodriguez and Salma Hayek (his Elena choice) were elbowed out of a much tougher rendition by Columbia…  ironically, closer to his El Mariachifranchise,as played by Antonio Banderas and Hayek.  Producer Steven Spielberg found Catherine in  the 1996 TV mini-series take of Titanic.  
  3. Jennifer Connolly, A Beautiful Mind, 2001.    Mexican-born Salma was  seen for Alicia Larde - who came from El Salvador.  Jennifer won an Oscar in the best written and best directed Best Film - and she then wed co-star Paul Bettany.
  4. Halle Berry, Die Another Day, 2002.
  5. Jennifer Garner, Daredevil, 2003.     Also considered for Elektra:Jessica Alba, Jolene Blalock, Neve Campbell, Penelope Cruz, Portia de Rossi, Claire Forlani, Angie Harmon, Katie Holmes, Milla Jovovich, Nicole Kidman, Lucy Liu,Mia Maestro,Rhona Mitra, Bridget Moynahan, Natalie Portman, Kyra Sedgwick, Charlize Theron, Reese Witherspoon.   Norwegian ballet dancer Natassia Malthe, who became Typhoid in Garner’s Elektra spin-off.
  6. Cameron Richardson, Alvin and the Chipmunks, 2006.     Seven guys were up for Dave (Allvviinn!!), just four babes for his, er, babe. Hayel, Drew Barrymore, Sarah Michele Gellar, and Jennifer Love Hewitt. But for once, the outsider won: the lively lovely from Baton Rouge became Claire Wilson.
  7. Carla Gugino, Faster, 2009.     Salma wisely quit the naff thriller a week before the off. San Franciso Chronicle critic Mick LeSalle retitled the film DOA - dead on arrival.
  8. Adrianne Palicki. Wonder Woman, TV, 2011.    The DC comicbook heroine had not been seen on screens since Lynda Carter ended her four year reign on ABC in 1979. Time then, said Warner, for a new movie.DC’s testosterone duo, Batman and Superman, had cleaned up,now it up to the beautiful superhuman Amazon warrior Princess Diana of Themysacira, her Lasso of Truth, her indestructible bracelets and (honest) her invisible plane.With who…? Across a decade of plans by producers as diverse as Joel Silver (so wrong) and Joss Whedon (so right), 24 beauties were in the frame: from Madonna to Whedon’s favourite, Cobie Smulders. Then, the film morphed into an updated TV series by David E Kelley - that, too, was dead after the rushed pilot. Palicki was the sole actress considered for TV - she was previously seen by George Miller for WW in his aborted Justice League, in 2008.
  9. Sandra Bullock, Gravity, 2012.   Once Angelina Jolie passed (twice), they all wanted the 3D sf special written by Mexican director Alfonso Cuaron and his son, Jonas - Hayek, Abbie Cornish, Marion Cotillard, Rebecca Hall, Scarlett Johannsson, Blake Lively, Sienna Miller, Casey Mulligan, Natalie Portman, Naomi Watts, Rachel Weisz, Olivia Wilde... Because the female astronaut is alone on-screen for most of the movie. (Sorry about that, George Clooney).
  10. Eva Green, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, 2014. Hayek, Helena Bonham Carter, Scarlett Johansson, Angelina Jolie8, Jennifer Lawrence, Rose McGowan, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams were all up for the dame in question. Ava.
