Being fired in Hollywood is often considered a late career since it seems to happen when a star in question is doing something controversial. From time to time, this is simply due to the fact that the creators did not have the vision of the desired actor.
A surprising revelation came recently from Julianne Moore when she appeared on Look what's up with Andy Cohen. An interlocutor asked Moore what she thought of the movie Can you ever forgive me? only to reveal that Moore was apparently fired from the project.
She would have played the role of the famous biographer Lee Israel until screenwriter Nicole Holofcener could put Moore canned. We know the reason, but it could set a new precedent for what "fired" really means in Hollywood.
What was the reason for the shot?
As Moore said during the call segment, she did not start firing. Can you ever forgive me? again and was only in rehearsals. Holofcener would not have liked Moore's approach to how Lee Israel should be portrayed.
Although there is no unusual situation in the world of cinema, Moore is not afraid to admit that she was a little hurt by her status as a great actress. After all, she had three Oscar nominations, a victory in 2015 (for Always alice), three Golden Globe, and she is an Emmy Award winner.
It's a bit odd to fire such a high-profile actress, especially when you hear Moore say she has not lost her job since working at a yogurt kiosk at the age of 15 .
Various leading actors were fired from film
Although he still wants to see Moore dismissed from a project, it's not the first time this has happened with stars on the list. You can refer to the examples that we compiled more than 50 years ago.
Judy Garland, one of the oldest and most notorious victims of shooting, was at the end of her life. By the late 1940s, she had already been fired from a movie because of her increasing drug use. In 1967, she was sent back from the movie Valley of the dolls because she has come too often intoxicated. Imagine how depressing it was to send a notice of termination to one of the biggest icons in the film's history.
In recent years, everyone from Ryan Gosling to Anne Hathaway has been fired from film because of conflict with producers, screenwriters or a director.
Eric Stoltz from Back to the future is one of the most famous and has finally helped his own career because of the strange notoriety.
Should we redefine what "pull" means?
The word "fired" has a long strange journey through the history of entertainment, especially when you apply it to Donald Trump and his L & # 39; s apprentice years. Even in this latest reality show, Trump was able to redefine what it was to get fired. Considering that he dismissed celebrities for not being competitive rather than for a real job, it kind of turned on a joke.
Being fired from anything is automatically equated with firing when there are many gray areas these days.
In Hollywood, not agreeing on a project should only mean "creative differences" rather than a legitimate dismissal. When it applies to someone like Moore, calling her dismissal simply depreciates what she has accomplished as an actress.
Being removed from a movie is probably good for the ego
We need to ask ourselves if there was anything more personal behind Moore's withdrawal from Can you ever forgive me?, outside of her, considering it as a mere experience of life. In addition, she said she loved Melissa McCarthy who then won the main role.
If you can find something positive behind that, you could say that it brings the actors of Moore's caliber back to reality. After winning several prizes, it's possible to think that you can do everything and save any movie.
In reality, the creative process will more often mean collisions. I hope Moore will use this to his advantage and make sure everyone is on the same page for his next project before taking the time to rehearse.
