Almost Got the Job: Celebrities that Were Supposedly Stars in Different Movies [PHOTOS]

Have you ever wondered what it would be like if someone else was casted as Bella Swan in Twilight instead of Kristen Stewart or if Henry Cavill played spide-y and some other actress played Katniss in "The Hunger Games"?

Well, there certainly were occasions when stars were almost famous for different roles but it just didn't work out for them.  Take for instance Jennifer Lawrence, the celebrity who plays the lead role in the movie "the Hunger Games". Lawrence had played different roles before such as mystique in the movie "X-men: First Class"

The star had auditioned for the role of Bella Swan for the movie "Twiligh" but the role was given to Kristen Stewart.

Henry Cavill was originally the pick of Stephanie Meyer, the author of the Twilight books, to play the role of Edward Cullen. The role however was seen fit for Robert Pattinson and thus Cavill became Superman-a much better fit than a sparkling vampire, but either way he would still be hot.

The matrix lead role that was played by Keanu Reeves was actually offered to Will Smith. The star had commented on this and said that "I watched Keanu's performance, and very rarely do I say this, but I would have messed it up."

Smith was also offered the role in Django but he turned it down saying "I thought it was brilliant, just not for me."

In movies, there are often many stars that audition for a certain role. What goes on behind the camera and at auditions is a different story. Stars have their own take on different roles and you can imagine how different a movie would be if a certain star was casted for it. Well, we'll just have to see what other roles stars would take on as they have already made their own respective roles a hit in Hollywood.
