Cindy Crawford

  1. Carré Otis, Wild Orchid, 1990. Wrong guy! Supermodel Cindy was then Richard Gere’s lover. Mickey Rourke had casting approval and his 9 1/2 Weeks writer-turned director Zalman King admitted he probably would not  have signed Carré.  “She  did very well,  considering the circumstances” (rumours of them having real sex on-camera) and wed Rourke for six years.
  2. Sandra Bullock, Demolition Man, 1994.  When Lori Petty was dropped as Sylvester Stallone’s leading lady. Crawford transferred to Fair Game –  a re-make of Stallone’s Cobra!
  3. Halle Berry, The Flintstones, 1994. Sharon Stone declined, Cindy tried but Halle won – even though the va-va-voom secretary was written white – like Berry’s  role in Father Hood
  4. Nicole Kidman, Batman Forever, 1994.
  5. Bridgette Wilson, House on Haunted Hill, 1999.   Change of MMM – Melissa Margaret Marr – in the re-hash of the original 1959 William Castle horror. A cult for some, crap for others. Wilson was wed to US tennis star Pete Sampras.
