Daryl Hannah

The movie: "Pretty Woman"

The role: Vivian Ward, an assertive Hollywood Boulevard prostitute who finds love with a wealthy lawyer.

The final pick: Julia Roberts. Hannah rejected the role since she believed it was belittling to women. "They sold it as a romantic fairytale when in fact it's a story about a prostitute who becomes a lady by being kept by a rich and powerful man," Hannah said. Hannah, however, later portrayed a stripper in the drama "Dancing at the Blue Iguana."
