Julia Roberts – Was Too Difficult To Work With According To Hollywood Producer

According to the latest edition of The Globe, producers of the film had to scramble after Julia Roberts quit the film before anyone even began filming it. At least, that’s what producer Edward Zwick recalls. He says that the entire situation turned out to be one huge disaster.

He put it this way, “The mere possibility of having the Pretty Woman wearing a corseted gown got the studio excited enough to cough up the dough,” but added that things turned from bad to worse when Julia wanted actor Daniel Day-Lewis to play Shakespeare. However, he was too busy with another project that he had going on at the time.

For Julia, she apparently was the kind of person who always got what she wanted and because she didn’t get Daniel Day-Lewis, she was supposedly upset. While she did do chemistry readings with actors like Ralph Fiennes, she made it pretty clear that her mind was already set on Daniel.

Edward said, “Even as Ralph did his best to elicit the famous smile, Julia barely acknowledged him. I’m not suggesting she was deliberately sabotaging, but it was a disaster. She even said that she didn’t find him funny at all.”

The Role Ended Up Going To Gwyneth Paltrow

Then came in Paul McGann, but it seemed like Julia still wasn’t having it. Edward recalled, “When Julia emerged from makeup, looking radiant in full period costume.
