Rachael Leigh Cook Reveals the Movie That Tobey Maguire Didn't Want to Make With Her

Rachael Leigh Cook is opening up about the time she missed out on a movie role because Tobey Maguire said that he didn’t want to make the film with her.

The actress revealed in a new interview that a film studio told her she could star in their movie, but only if she could convince Tobey to be her male lead.

After Rachael‘s 1999 movie She’s All That was released, Miramax wanted to have either her or co-star Freddie Prinze Jr. star in their romantic comedy movie Boys and Girls.

“Miramax said, ‘We’re making this with either you or Freddie. Rachael, if you can convince Tobey Maguire to do this movie, we’ll make it with you guys. Otherwise we’re gonna go make it with Freddie and somebody,’” Rachael told TooFab.

She added, “I met with Tobey Maguire and I said, ‘So, what do you think about the script?’ He said, ‘It’s not good. I don’t want to do it.’ And I was like, ‘Okay …. so what do you want to eat?’ It was clear that there was no convincing him.”

Freddie ended up making the movie with Claire Forlani in the lead female role.

Rachael could have starred in another movie with Freddie, but she reveals he passed on the opportunity.
