Liv Tyler


  1. Natalie Portman, Léon, France, 1994.      Sorry, cherie, said auteur Luc Besson,you’re too old... at 15.  Auteur Luc Beson said he saw 6,000 petites filles for Matilda. Natalie was only 11, when he’d ordered 12-year-olds. “But she was like a bombe atomique! In one single scene, she was able to cry and to laugh - exceptional for a child of her age. “Thirty-three films and 16 years later, she won an Oscar for Black Swan, 2010.
  2. Natalie Portman, Leon (US: The Professional), France, 1994.      Too tall.  Or the titular Jean Reno was too small... She was also 17 to (the far better actress) Natalie’s 13.
  3. Reese Witherspoon, Fear, 1995.    Well, here’s a switch. A Hollywood movie copying, er inspired, by a Bollywood feature! Tylerwas not keen on being  Nicole Walker in the rehash of Darr, 1983.  Maybe because director James Foley was then only known for making Madonna’s music videos. Papa Don't Preach, etc.
  4. Angelina Jolie, Lara Croft, Tomb Raider, 2000.   For girls, Lara Croft is their James Bond.  Well, more of a sexy Indiana Jones.  And 21 hopefuls wanted to bringther sassy, video-game adventurer to life. Demi More was, perhaps, the most keen, but who was simply disregarded. Christina Applegate, Drew Barrymore, Sandra Bullock, Cameron Diaz, Nicole Eggert, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Kate Hudson, Elizabeth Hurley, Ashley Judd, Jennifer Lopez, Gwneth Paltrow, Anna Nicole Smith (a joke, surely), Catherine Zeta-Jones were more serioiusly considered. Fairuza Balk, Natalie Cassidy, Kirsten Dunst and Milla Jovovich auditioned while Denise Richards, Charlize Theron, Uma Thurman and Liv Tyler simply refused. And Lara’s guy (who fled the sequel) was Daniel Craig - complete with a Walther PPK pistol that he would use again as 007 in Casino Royale, 2005.
  5. Amy Smart, The Battle of Shaker Heights, 2003. In the running for the Tabby, the girlfriend of bright student Shia LaBeouf in the second Project Greenlight film made by Miramax and HBO.
  6. Gretchen Mol, The Notorious Betty Page, 2005.      Liv was Martin Scorsese’schoice as the renowned UStripper until his Aviator finally took off. They both quit and the Page project was inherited by Gretchen and director Mary Harron. “Gretchen was much prettier than I was,” said Bette. “My only complaint was the title. I was never notorious!”
  7. Rosario Dawson, Clerks II, 2006.      Uncomfortable with Becky’s potty mouth - “Sometimes, in the heat of the moment, it's forgivable to go ass to mouth.” Hey what did Liv expect. The script was another View Askew fromNew Jersey auteur Kevin Smith - not TheLord of the Rings IV.
  8. Keri Russell, August Rush, 2007.    Claire Danes was also seen for the cellist mother of the titular Freddie Highmore. Saw this on planes to and from LA for my 70th birthday trip in 2008.
  9. Katie Holmes, The Romantics, 2009.   Liv  was Laura  - and then she  was not.  Somethng wrong when a director can’t settle on the right actress. Even more so when the director invented  the character – as he is is Galt Niederhoffer,  who wrote rhe novel. Then again, she also also got the title wrong.  Nothing romantic here.
  10. Ashley Judd, Flypaper (aka Hold-Up$), 2010.   Jessica Biel was also up for the bank teller being protected by secret admirer  Patrick Dempsey when  said bank is hit by not one but two robbery crews. Just like the film had not one, but 17 producers, Dempsey included.
