We fell in love with Pretty Woman because the whore found her rich Prince Charming, but that is not how it originally ended.
About a year ago, Diane Lane, who auditioned for the lead role, told James Corden on The Late Late Show that the original ending was with Gere throwing Roberts out of the car like she was trash. That was one version of the not so fairy tale ending.
Last week, David Katzenberg, who ran Disney at the time, shared a much different ending at a Q&A. According to Page Six, he revealed this ending, “As a script, ‘Pretty Woman’ was an R-rated movie about a hooker on Hollywood Boulevard.” Then he added, “By the way, in the original version — it’s pretty dark — I think she died of an overdose. So convincing [people] that we should make that at the Walt Disney Co., and that it’s a fairy tale and a princess movie, a lot of people had a hard time seeing it. But, as they say, the rest is history.”
Is it wrong that I want a movie studio to make the original version? As sweet and as RomCom the original one was, I want to see the darker version. Bella Thorne could play the Lady of Night with Jon Hamm as her John, and they could get Oscar noms for their work in Not So Pretty Woman. It wouldn’t be a hit like the original one, but you wouldn’t need a bottle of wine to go with all of that cheesiness.
Which ending of Pretty Woman do you like the best?
It is time for a new edition of Carpool Karaoke on The Late Late Show and this time James Corden is driving Gwen Stefani around. The two of them were chatting, singing her songs and acting out Emojis when they suddenly hit traffic.
They realized that the best way to beat it, was to get in the HOV lane. Only problem is that they needed two more people. Where are they going to get them? That’s when the CBS late night host called his friend George Clooney who in turn called his co-star Julia Roberts. Ironically enough they have a movie coming out, so this worked out perfectly for them.
Anyways, once they had their seatbelts on, it was time to belt out some songs. The first tune was Hollaback Girl. Clooney guessed what he thought it was about and the the woman behind it told him that he was close. But she didn’t tell us what it’s about, just that she won.
But did they win Carpool Karaoke? That went to Julia Roberts who I think I actually came off as really likable in this bit. Unlike Clooney, who I think came off even more detestable in it. Who did you think won the ride down Stefansi’s musical lane?
Julia Roberts was on The Tonight Show yesterday and Jimmy Fallon challenged her to a game of Face Balls. Basically the two of them throw big clear plastic balls at each others face and then we watch the slo-mo replay of it.
So ladies, if you ever wondered what we look like when we take balls to the face, now you know. We get smushed and it’s not pretty.
Yesterday on Jimmy Kimmel Live they had the Steel Magnolias mother and daughter on the show, and Sally Field and Julia Roberts were anything but the dainty Southern Belles they played in the 1989 movie. The two Oscar winners took part in a curse off and you’d think that Pretty Woman would’ve mopped the floor with the Flying Nun and you would be so so so wrong. Sweet little Gidget that told us, that we love her, we really really love her, was using a lot of other four letter words in the competition and none of them were love. What they were is sadly left to the imagination because the showdown aired on broadcast television and curse words are not lot to be uttered on it. So instead we heard bleeps and saw their mouths pixelized. Now even though we don’t what America’s Sweethearts said that doesn’t mean we can’t laugh with them as they blushed after each naughty word/phrase they said.
Now I have always loved Sally Field because how can you not. But hearing her say dirty dirty words makes me love her a whole more.
And I want to say f*ck you to Jimmy Kimmel because the f*cking bastard actually made me like Julia Roberts for the first time in a really really really long time. Seriously, didn’t she actually come off as likeable and not the snob she always appears to be?
Ellen DeGeneres loves to scare people, so imagine how much satisfaction shes got from scaring someone that surprised her? She so enjoyed it so much. You can see how much happiness it brought to her when she hid Julia Roberts’ bathroom and jumped out at her as she walked in. The Pretty Woman on the other hand was so shocked that she peed in her pants.
But it didn’t stop there, while the daytime host was interviewing the Oscar winner on her show she had a man dressed as Snow White also scare her. I am not sure if she wet her pants again, but she definitely screamed like a Runaway Bride who was caught by her broom on their wedding day.
Now before you feel bad for Erin Brokovich, she loves to scare her kids so karma is a bitch and her name is Ellen.
