Anonymous asked: Yeah, Blunt is probably kicking herself for having passed on it right about now. But i loved Scarjo in the role, so i don't mind.
Well, if there’s any consolation, it’s that she didn’t pass on it willingly but was legally obliged to — she could’ve been sued for breach of contract otherwise!
Sure, it’s a small consolation, but there are tons of apocryphal stories of actors who willingly passed on films that made the careers of the actors who took “their” roles. Though I can’t think of an example right now.
