Applauded, But Wrong

List actors who were well regarded in roles they were wrong for.

Vivian Leigh in Gone with the Wind: Too pretty. In the book, Scarlett is not beautiful.

Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffanies: Too old. And too prissy.

Mae West in everything: Too old and dumpy to be the girl every man wanted.

Liza Minnelli in Cabaret. Sally Bowles is supposed to be a mediocre talent who can't sing.

I've heard that Vivian Leigh's southern accent was not good (in "Gone with the Wind"). My ear for that is not good, so I can't tell.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
