Sometimes choosing to say no to a role is a good thing for any actor. Then there is that one decision that you just wish you could have back. Just ask actress Amanda Seyfried. Seyfried just revealed she turned down a big Marvel Studios gig back in the day. The role of the green assassin Gamora from Guardians of the Galaxy.
Seyfried said in an MTV Interview:
“I turned down [a superhero movie] once and they haven’t called back since,” Seyfried responded when asked about her interest in playing a superhero. “And it was a big one. I don’t regret it because I didn’t want to be green for six months out of every year. They tell beautiful stories through superheroes, and my daughter’s now really obsessed with superheroes now, and part of me wishes I’d done it, but the other part of me is like ‘I had a life to live’ and I don’t think I would’ve been happy.”
I’m sure their agents say otherwise. Seyfried’s latest film, Blumhouse’s You Should Have Left, is now streaming on VOD.
