Nicole Kidman revealed that she really wanted to play Julia Roberts‘ role in the 1999 movie Notting Hill.

Julia played the role of film star Anna Scott, the love interest to Hugh Grant‘s character.

In a conversation, Nicole revealed that she almost accepted a small role in Hugh‘s film Love Actually.

“I think there was something where I think I really wanted a role … maybe I was gonna do a small role in Love, Actually at one point,” Nicole said in a conversation with Marie Claire. “Yeah. Yes.”

“Were you? Which part?” Hugh asked, and Nicole responded, “I can’t remember. It was not a big role. And I really wanted the role that Julia Roberts played in Notting Hill. … Yeah, I did. But I wasn’t well known enough, and I wasn’t talented enough.”

Gloria Estefan Reveals She Passed On Julia Roberts' Role In 'Mystic Pizza'

Julia Roberts‘s breakout role in Mystic Pizza almost went to Gloria Estefan.

The 63-year-old singer opened up about why she passed on the role of Daisy Araujo in the 1988 movie during Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen earlier this week.

Gloria was asked by a fan about whether she’s turned down any songs that eventually became big hits, and she revealed that it was a song that first came to her mind, but Julia‘s leading role in the movie.

“I had that role. I didn’t even have to audition for it, but at the time I felt like I was not a good enough actor and I wanted to cement my career in music,” she recalled.

Gloria shared, “I thought, one day I will do acting but I’m not going to throw myself into this and not be good at it.”

She added about Julia‘s performance in the movie: “She was awesome. I would not have been ready.”

Gloria is about to launch a new Red Table Talk with her daughter, Emily and niece, Lili, and it will be available to watch on October 7 on Facebook Watch.

Julia Roberts & Denzel Washington to Reunite On Screen in Upcoming Netflix Movie!

Julia Roberts and Denzel Washington will be starring in the upcoming movie Leave the World Behind, which has been set up at Netflix.

The two actors worked together almost three decades ago in the movie The Pelican Brief and this is a long-awaited reunion!

Leave the World Behind is based on the novel by Rumaan Alam and the film will be written and directed by Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail. The novel will be published this fall by HarperCollins.

Here is the film’s synopsis, via Deadline: “Amanda and Clay’s aspirational vacation with their teenage children is interrupted by the arrival of a middle aged couple who own the holiday home and who have fled an unprecedented blackout in the city. When the internet, television and radio stop working, as does the landline, they have no way of finding out what is happening. As strange sonic booms shatter the peace of the countryside, and animals start to migrate in strange ways, the physical and mental health of the families begins to disintegrate. The renters are upscale and White; the owners are upscale and Black. The issues of race and clash become distractions to the more alarming things are happening all around them.”

Julia will be playing Amanda while Denzel will be playing the owner of the home.
