Beyonce Turned Down Beauty and the Beast


Pop star Beyonce, who is rumored to star in the upcoming live action remake of The Lion King [click here if you missed that], turned down a role in the 2017 live action version of Beauty and The Beast because the part was too small...

Director Bill Condon, who cast Beyonce in Dreamgirls, tells Yahoo,
“I even tried to get her into Beauty and the Beast, but it wasn’t a big enough part."
"She would have been a good feather duster.”
The role eventually went to Gugu Mbatha-Raw

A feather duster??🤣🤣🤣

Chrissy Snow said...

So the man who directed Beyonce in her starring role in Dreamgirls back in '06 could only manage to try and get her a bit role in his latest blockbuster film?

Yep, that was shade. That doesn't usually happen with stars of Beyonce's perceived caliber.

I don't care about her acting
BUT she is clearly trying to look and pose like Kim K

Gugu is 10x more beautiful than Beyonce so she makes a better naturally beautiful Belle. Not only that, Gugu is more intelligent and eloquent. She is so gorgeous.

Besides, Beyonce's marriage is a real life Beauty and the Beast. She probably wants escapism.

I see that creole blood ain't stopping her from aging like a white mexican. She looks old!! Most black women look ten to fifteen years younger then what their age really is

I truly believe Beonce would be the biggest MOVIE star in the world right now but there are too many Harvey Weinsteins in the Hollywood , so she refused to sell her soul unlike the Jennifer Lawrence and Paltrows of the world who wanna cry victim but were too busy being about their careers that they let Harvey do what he wanted to them.

Kudos to you, Bey for not being a sell-out.

Beyonce has what she has (not good) because of Jay Z - he is her Weinstein.

5:06 All these big artists compromise themselves to get to their destination.

She was given a small role because she is supposedly illerate. It would have helped her comeback, though.

Small roles could make a huge impact.

They said she was originally offered Jennifer Hudson's role in Dreamgirls but she turned it down because she wanted the lead role. But that could have been her breakout role. It's a similar situation to Angelina Jolie and Wynona Ryder in Girl Interupted. That movie was supposed to be all about Wynona but Angelina's supporting character stole the whole movie. I do think that she has a Diana Ross complex where all she can play is beautiful leading ladies. I would love for her to play a fat unglamorous mother or something where the character is not an extension of her real life public persona.

bey bitch have sold out.. She done fucked and sucked so many other like Harvey Weinstein’s for most of Grammy’s and MTV awards wins. Hell its been ten years since she had #1 hit on the billboard also did she say Gwyneth Paltrow is best friend was she knocking it with Gwyneth real a few years ago at awards shows, parties, play dates, and the super bowl lol Harvey fucked that it! She just don’t have the acting talent. Hollywood eyes she just another pretty black woman want to fuck

@3:04 I'm 12:06 and you have no choice but to bow down to the Queen. She slays all day and brings light to this dreary world. It's time to get your ass in formation and be glad she is still choosing to entertain you peasants.

A lot if the roles in Hollywood especially for
Black women are stereotypical anyway. I am glad Beyonce is choosy about her movie roles.

Bey is an icon.
She can produce her own movie s and hire her own writers to come up with strong black female characters for her to play.

lady said...

@6:10....gonna have to agree. She had to do a hell of a lot of knee dropping & throat bobbing to get where she WAS.... Hope she's not sacrificing ????. something not right,,,, attending adult partys & activities

Just an observation said...

She would have been a good feather duster ?!?!?
Well damn, if that isn't shade. Speaks volumes of how people view her. She felt she should have a bigger role but they said 'uhhh, no'.
Being a feather duster means be quiet and look pretty. She will never be able to distance herself from that vocal tone of speaking like she has snot in her nose. Not leading lady worthy unless it's a good film.

Just an observation said...

hood film

For Real😒😨😕😄 said...

Can someone PLEASE explain to me why NO ONE can see that this is NOT the REAL B.

This IS A CLONE.

Nobody can't SEE THAT ??

and he didn't even say a great or wonderful feather duster. good is as much as he could offer. that's just downright shade!

Beyoncé looks made-up, not natural. She has been hanging around because she's obsessed with shining. Beyoncé can't handle it and she is about to snap. Her age is catching up, she's been looking tired lately. Jay Z help shirt cracks me up. When will she ever stop stalking the media?

Anonymous said...

bey is not aging well. she's only mid 30's ?!! Kelly is not looking like this. She needs to cut back on the plastic surgeries/bleaching. her lips and titties are getting out of control. bey will never be able to make a big mark in the film industry...her speaking skills will always prevent her from doing so. even with pre-scripted answers for interviews, she struggles. at this point i hope she continues what she is doing keeping a low profile. no more beyonce please. it's been 15 years non stop. and it's been pretty meaningless. no classic music, image, nothing. i' mean she's still in the same blonde weave she started out in in 2003 lol.

Beyonce is fake 36, is really 59 years old, and does not look a day younger than 65.

Are beyonce's fake pregnancies really just covers for when she gets major plastic surgeries done?

Why does she come out looking more and more plastic after her "pregnancies"?

I'm still waiting for Beyonce's launching movie...

Black don't crack, but Beyonce's bleached skin is a-cracking. LOLs

Just an observation said...

Rihanna and the other young talents are killing the game and are savvy about their brand. Beyoncé looks really desperate not that she can't keep up but she needs a new stylist. Too many young ladies with hunger for anyone to pay her any attention.

Don balee me juh watch said...

@10:58 you didn't hear? The directors of a star is born dropped her from consideration for the role. She had too many demands including asking the production company to pay for her staff of 46. Instead of using the opportunity to breakout her acting she came with full Sasha Fierce demands. She treated it as a paid vacation. Even top A list actors don't ask for that stuff. They said not on our dime. Supposedly Lady Gaga got the role after they sent Bey packing.

Anonymous said...

^ No. Lady Gaga's movie is different. Beyonce wasn't a real star, so they looked for a genuine star for their movie.

This is alow budget movie, costing a whopping $10. Can't wait for Beyonce's "A MINOR STARLET IS BORN".

IT WILL SURELY BE A PUSSYPOPPING HOT MESS!

@7:12 same shit happened with that movie "Obsessed" Idris Elba spilled that tea. He was basically like muthafucka they ain't hire your whole damn entourage, they hired YOU!!

Idris on Connecting With Beyonce…
“I think this was a very important role for her, because it was the first time she wasn’t playing a singer. But when we first started taping, it was difficult for us to really connect as artists because she has such a huge machine behind her. So in the early going it felt divided … almost like it was her and her team on one side, and everyone else on the other..."

Beyonce is so overrated. She is one of the worst actors I have ever seen, and her yoldeling is out of control on most of the songs that she sings. Retire please. I am so sick of seeing and hearing her.

Just an observation said...

Bradley Cooper (and many other A list male stars) was not going to accept the lead male role with her in it. Now that Lady Gaga is the female lead, he is all in.

That says a lot.

Beyonce is waaaay too good for Beauty and the Beast.

She and Jay-Z should just produce their own live-action movie, entitled: TRANNY AND THE CAMEL.

Why is she looking like Hazel E's sister in that pic though? NOT a compliment....
