Alicia Silverstone

  1. Tiffani Thiesen, Beverly Hills 90210, TV, 1994-2000.    Passed on the role of Valerie Malone because   “it was at the beginning of my career.” Uh?   Made sense. A year later, she and   her First Kiss company won a $10m deal with   Columbia.
  2. Claire Danes, My So-Called Life, TV, 1994-95       Had been in consideration for Angela Chase, the role that made Claire a star   - and so quickly that her film schedule helped cancel the series.
  3. Katherine Heigl, My Father, The Hero, 1994.      “I was a little bit too heavy compared to the girl who did get it,” confessed the latest US teenage princess on losing the (re-make) role of Gérard Depardieu’s daughter to a genuine 14-year-old. “But that was a blessing because the girl runs around in a bathing suit throughout the... worst movie I’ve ever seen.And the girl was really bad." The Irish-German “Hi guhl” would lose various TV leads but wonGérard Depardieu’s hot daughter. “Hot? I was 14, for God's sake!” Ironically, Silverstone did a genuine French film instead, Le Nouveau Monde, for a Depardieu director, Alain Corneau... with a certainJames Gandolfini.
  4. Dominique Swain, Lolita, 1995.    Obvious idea when Clueless struck gold. An increasing amount of pedophilia on the world’s front pages kept Adrian Lyne’s re-make out of UScinemas for three years. It was finally premiered on the Showtime pay-tv channel in the summer of ’98.
  5. Neve Campbell, The Craft, 1996.      Three high school girls dabble with magic - and the studio kept asking writer-director Andrew Fleming: “Could you get Alicia?”
  6. Claire Danes, Romeo and Juliet, 1996.      Or how TV's Angela   beat Ms Clueless. You may remember that she thought   Cluelesswas very deep.   “It was deep in the way that it was very light. I think lightness has to come from a very deep place if it is true lightness.” That won her The 2000 Plain English Campaign annual Foot in Mouth Award.
  7. Monica Keena, Snow White: A Tale of Terror, 1997.   Liliana Hoffman (aka Snow White) was written for Alicia.
  8. Anna Faris, Scary Movie, 1999.    Passed on Cindy Campbell in the raucous horror satire partly based on the Wayans brothers’ all-embracing  1998 script,… Last Summer I Screamed Because Halloween Fell On Friday The 13th.  
  9. AJ Cook, The Virgin Suicides, 1998.     In her eternal widsom (d’oh!), Silverstone passed on the offer from debutante director Sofia Coppola.
  10. Jennifer Love Hewitt, Heartbreakers, 2000.      Back in the old days - 1997! - Silverstone was to be Page aka Wendy aka Jane opposite Cher (or Angelica Huston) as her mother Angela aka Max aka Ulga. Yes, they were a scam team, seducing and fleecing old men.Like Gene Hackman.
  11. Anne Hathaway, The Princess Diaries, 2001.     Among 22 youngstars (Jessica Alba to Reese Witherspoon) rejecting the awkward San Francisco teenager being groomed (by Julie Andrews!) to inherit the Genovia throne - after director Garry Marshall’s (rather surprising) first choiceof Juliette Lewis quit. And so, Hathaway made her first movie.
  12. Renée Zellweger, Chicago, 2001.
  13. Rosamund Pike, Die Another  Day, 2002.
  14. Nicole Kidman, Bewitched, 2005.   Jennifer Aniston, Cameron Diaz, Gwyneth Paltrow were also  in contention until Kidman wriggled her nose as Samantha. Badly.
  15. Oksana Akinshina, Moscow Zero, 2006.   She was attached  (like Val Kilmer, Vincent Gallo) and then she was not..
