The 1990 romantic comedy, Pretty Woman, helped Julia Roberts to not only bag the limelight but also helped her in taking a big leap forward in her career. However, the Oscar-winning actress made it pretty clear in a recent interview that Pretty Woman is less likely to return to Hollywood currently. The film received appreciation at the time it was released, but the actress doubted the return of this film in the present-day American film industry.
In a recent interview with The Guardian, Julia Roberts said that the primary reason why the film just won’t be accepted by the producers right now is the gender politics portrayed in the film. Pretty Woman starred Julia Roberts as a prostitute to Richard Gere’s business tycoon. Roberts said that the script alone can make present-day producers sweat and corner the film now.
Most recently seen opposite to Lucas Hedges in Ben is Black, Julia Roberts stated that she doesn’t really think this movie is something that can be made right now. “So many things you could poke a hole in, but I don’t think it takes away from people being able to enjoy it”, she said.
Though, before Pretty Woman Julia Roberts starred in Mystic Pizza in 1988, and 1989 released Steel Magnolias. However, the role she played in Pretty Woman was turned down by almost eight other actresses including Diane Lane and Meg Ryan. And even though the film is received differently after some 29 years, it was adapted into a Broadway musical in 2018. The stage play started in August 2018 and featured Andy Karl and Samantha Barks at the New York’s Nederlander Theatre. Bryan Adams composed the music of this adaptation of the 1990 romantic comedy, along with his collaborator Jim Vallance. Read More news at Storify News
