According to reports, Emma Watson and Miles Teller were passed over for the lead roles in ‘La La Land’ due to their excessive demands.
Reports suggest that the actress from the ‘Harry Potter’ franchise had made some outrageous requests. The producers went out of their way to fulfill her wishes, but in the end, she decided that the part wasn’t suitable for her.
According to an insider, Miles was given an offer of $4 million to star in “La La Land.” However, he declined and asked for a higher amount of $6 million instead. In the meantime, Watson was offered the lead female role but refused to commit initially. Later on, she made some unusual demands such as having all rehearsals done in London, a strange request for a film called “La La Land.” The production team tried to accommodate her requests, but ultimately Watson didn’t feel the movie was the right fit for her. Consequently, the role went to Emma Stone, and once she confirmed her involvement, Ryan Gosling agreed to work with her again.
Reportedly, both Miles Teller and Emma Watson are feeling upset about losing the opportunity to be part of the award-winning film ‘La La Land’. The movie has received numerous accolades and is likely to receive several Academy Awards this month. Sources suggest that both actors are frustrated with themselves for not taking on the roles and are now searching for someone to blame.
Emma Stone expressed her elation after receiving a nomination for Best Actress in a Leading Role for her remarkable performance in ‘La La Land’. She confessed that the recognition was far beyond what she had ever imagined. In her recent statement, she exclaimed her gratitude for the honour and was thrilled to be sharing it with her colleagues from the movie. Emma believes that connecting with people is the greatest aspect of life and she cherishes the opportunity to work with such talented, kind, and passionate individuals in the industry.
It brings me immense pleasure to see that the film has resonated so well with the viewers and has perhaps brought a spark of excitement in their lives. The fact that it has exceeded all our expectations is just overwhelming, and we are eagerly looking forward to commemorating this achievement together.
