Many stars regret many of the decisions that they have made. One of the decisions that Julia Roberts probably regrets the most is turning down the leading role she was offered in the “Blind Side.”
The Blind Side went on to win an Oscar, while the movie she acted in instead, “Valentine’s Day,” is hardly recognized or remembered by anyone. When she turned the role down, the director considered turning the leading part into a man’s role to make the story about a father-son relationship rather than a mother-son relationship.
However, the director did not stick with this plan. Instead, Sandra Bullock took the part of Leigh Anne Tuohy and she did a very good job.
