In the Hollywood world, sometimes producers reach for the stars to play a role in the movie, and are rejected. Some of the biggest stars and most memorable characters were realized because another actor or actress rejected the role. And when it comes to the key role in Marvel Guardians of the Galaxy franchise seems to be one of Mean girls rejected the chance to go into space.
Speaking in a recent interview with MTV International on family drama The art of racing in the rainactress Amanda Seyfried it seemed to indicate that she had rejected the role of Gamora Guardians of the Galaxy. Here's what she had to say to the question if she would consider taking on the role of a superhero:
"I rejected it once and have not called back since. And it was great. I don't regret it because I didn't want to be green for six months every year. There are beautiful stories that are told by superheroes, and my daughter is now obsessed with superheroes and part of me regrets not doing it, but the other part of me is like "I had a life to live" and I don't think I would be happy . "
The mention of not wanting to "be green for six months each year" tells us that the role in question was very likely Guardians of the Galaxy. After all, there is no other great role in the comic in which the female character was green.
Although Gamora's role would be huge for Amanda Seyfried's career, she clearly knows that this would have a negative impact on her life. Although she is already very famous as an actress, this role takes your fame to a higher level, and it certainly requires a lot of time due to the contract with many films for a long time, participation in international press tours, developing goods promotions etc. However, looking at this How much time Zoe Saldana spent at the game of Gamora, it doesn't seem that Seyfried would have to be green for six months each year. It may take several months every other year, and so far she only had to worry about four films, the latest of which is Avengers: Endgamethat did not take much time on the screen.
At the end of the day, Amanda Seyfried probably probably refused Guardians of the Galaxy. It's not that Seyfried is not a good actress, but there is something in Zoe Saldana's performance that makes the character seem more than just a woman in alien makeup.
