[ # ] Pretty Woman actually had an ugly ending
March 6th, 2017 under Julia Roberts

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?
