Christina Applegate

  1. Maia Brewton, Adventures in Babysitting, 1986.       While there were several comings and goings for the lead role of Chris (from Jane Fonda in the 60s to Bridget Fonda in the 80s). only three girls were in contention for Sara – Brewton, Applegatge and Nicole Eggert.
  2. Juliette Lewis, Cape Fear, 1991.     Among the many- the very many - Drew Barrymore, Jennifer Connelly, Shannen Doherty, Nicole Eggert, Bridget Fonda, Jodie Foster, Helen Hunt, Nicole Kidman, Diane Lane, Jennifer JasonLeigh, Alyssa Milano, Demi Moore, Sarah Jessica Parker, Molly Ringwald, Meg Ryan, Winona Ryder, Brooke Shields, Tiffani Thiessen, Reese Witherspoon - considered by Steven Spielberg and, later, Martin Scorsese for the teen daughter of Nick Nolte and Jessica Lange: Danielle Bowden.(Nicole in the 1962 original). Some found it too sexy and, indeed, few could have equalled the on-heat musk of Juliette’s totally improvised - and one take - seduction scene with Robert De Niro.
  3. Natasha Richardson, Nell, 1994.   When Jodie Foster was starring and directing, she chose Applegate for the thankless partof Liam Neeson’s partner, Paula Olsen. When Fosterpased direction to Michael Apted, he chose a fellow Brit as the Christina was stuck in her Married With Children sitcom,maturing into a latterday Ann Harding.
  4. Kate Winslet, Titanic, 1996. 
  5. Reese Witherspoon, Legally Blonde, 2000.    Applegate, Katherine Heigl, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Milla Jovovich, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Charlize Theron all tried to win Elle Woods in the far from official sequel to Clueless, 1994. At one point, Elle said that she gew up in Bel Air, across the street from TV producer icon, Aaron Spelling - his daughter, Tori, was also up for Elle.
  6. Angelina Jolie, Lara Croft, Tomb Raider, 2000.    For the 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 she was simply disregarded. 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 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.
  7. Anne Hathaway, The Princess Diaries, 2001.    Among 22 young stars (Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz, Reese Witherspoon, etc) rejecting the awkward San Francisco teenager being groomed (by Julie Andrews!) to inherit the Genovia throne - after director Garry Marshall’s (surprising) first choiceof Juliette Lewis quit.
  8. Kirsten Dunst, Spider-Man, 2001.
  9. Renée Zellweger, Chicago2002.
  10. Nicole Kidman, Bewitched, 2004.    Who wants to play wriggly-nosed Samantha? Me, me, chorused... Jennifer Aniston, Kim Basinger, Cameron Diaz, Heather Graham (who would have been quirkily great), Angelina Jolie, Lisa Kudrow (perfect!), Tatyum, O’Neal,. Gwyneth Paltrow, Michelle Pfeiffer, Julia Roberts, Meg Ryan, Alicia Silverstone, Hilary Swank, Naomi Watts. Among 34 possibles. Over the years.
