No happy ending here!
“Trumbo” star Diane Lane auditioned for the role of Vivian Ward — which eventually went to Julia Roberts — in Garry Marshall’s 1990 “Pretty Woman,” she told James Cordon on “The Late Late Show.”
But she wasn’t the only one.
Diane Lane told James Cordon on “The Late Late Show” that she auditioned for “Pretty Woman,” along with half of Hollywood.
“It seemed to me that every girl in Hollywood was crawling around in her underwear at that point in time — our best lingerie, let’s be clear — to get this film,” she said.
“Because at that time, it was a story about this psychotic call girl who had a delusion of grandeur.”
Lane also spoiled the movie’s original ending.
“It was called ‘3,000’ — her fee for the weekend,” Lane said.
“Pretty Woman” was supposed to end with Vivian Ward being kicked out of a rolling limo.
“And at the end of the film, she gets kicked out of a rolling limousine and into the street.”
In the final cut, Edward (Richard Gere) shows up outside Vivian’s apartment in a white limo with a bouquet of roses.
Lane also recreated the “King of the World” scene from “Titanic” with fellow guest Paul Rudd, who said he auditioned for Leonardo DiCaprio’s lead role in the movie.
“I think the guy that got it was pretty good,” Rudd said.
