two thousand one hundred eighty-sixth category

Turned down role due to pregnancy

1AC99BB3-C3B7-49D8-92AE-CA36CCA7E5BE_4_5005_c

Betty Hutton bowed out of ROMANCE ON THE HIGH SEAS (1948) when she found out she was pregnant. The role went to Doris Day.

Robin Wright turned down a lead role in ROBIN HOOD: PRINCE OF THIEVES (1991) because she and Sean Penn were expecting a child. The part went to Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio.

Jodie Foster found out she was pregnant after signing up for DOUBLE JEOPARDY (1999). She dropped out, because the role required scenes that would be hard to perform while pregnant. Ashley Judd stepped in.

1) Cyd Charisse thought of getting an abortion, but decided not to and her role in an "American in Paris" went to Leslie Caron.

2) Alfred Hitchcock was greatly disappointed when Vera Miles told him she would not be available for the lead role in "Vertigo" due to pregnancy. The role went to Kim Novak.

3) Fred Astaire's original co-star in "Royal Wedding" was to be June Allyson. Then she became pregnant with the baby that the doctors said was impossible for her to have and she was replaced by Judy Garland. Judy later had personal difficulties and was eventually replaced by Jane Powell, who actually completed the role.

Wasn't Hitchcock mad at Vera Miles for getting pregnant?  Not sure of the story.

I believe, contrary to the category, that Janet Leigh was pregnant with her daughter during Safari?

I love Audrey Hepburn, but West Side Story - Carol Lawrence was better than Natalie Wood (Carol had the Broadway role)?

Another one: Elizabeth Taylor had just given birth to her son Michael Wilding Jr and wasn't ready to go back to work so she was replaced by Ann Blyth in ALL THE BROTHERS WERE VALIANT (1953).
