Everybody knows that working with the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a pretty big deal. It won’t be wrong to call MCU the most successful franchise of all time. The engaging movies establish a huge fan base for the actors. Audiences around the world love watching MCU movies.
Amanda Seyfried is an American actress, singer, and model. She ventured into acting when she was 15. Since then, she has appeared in many successful movies. Notable movies that Amanda has starred in include Mama Mia and Mean Girls.
But not all actors are willing to make the move with MCU. The list of such actors is quite long! Amanda Seyfried is one such actress who turned down the role. You might want to know the bizarre reason behind this!
Amanda did not specify the character’s name immediately. But we caught the hint. Read on to know more!
MCU approached Amanda for a major role in the movie Guardians of the Galaxy. She was to play the role of Gamora (Thanos’s daughter). She exclaimed that she did not want to go through the exhausting make-up process. She also stated she did not want to turn green for six months! Well, she had a point there. MCU’s obsession with the perfect look can get pretty extensive. Also, the shooting went on for about the year. Double than what Amanda assumed it to be. Looks like she would have stayed green for more than six months!
Following this, Zoe Saldana accepted the role of Gamora. The movie was declared a box office hit. It made almost $772 million at the box office!
Amando previously stated that she does not regret turning the role down. She’s content that she did other projects that made her happy.
