    Stop whining. You know this is how Hollywood works. You don’t see Viola Davis crying because she will never be cast as the love interest opposite Denzel or Leonardo or Hugh Jackman. Because Hollywood doesnt and wont see her as the Black Amber Heard. Liam btw who’s previous leading ladies included Jennifer Lawrence and Amber Heard…so he probably had a hand in saying uhh I want to be with the hot girl. No one cares about talent in special effects Independence Day special effects. Also if you really want to show outrage boycott the movie..but the producers know people won’t.

    i have heard of Mae and seen her work. she has been working steady for a long time. the other girl however, I have never heard of. we all know why they re-casted and that is what is so upsetting.

    +1000000 this.

  • FerCat

    The role is probably beneath her anyway. Besides she’s likely gonna be standing on a box through out the movie if she reprises the role. She’s 5’1″ and he’s 6’3″

  • Dog Almighty

    Not that surprising of a decision. In Hollywood Mae isn’t considered what one calls “hot”. Women have to be young and thin, that sells films.
