7 movie characters written for men, but played by women

When the news comes through the news that a character, played by a woman, was originally conceived as a man, readers are amused: they must, they say, and we would never suspect that there could be a guy at this place!

But at times the secret becomes obvious: in today's top we remembered the most curious cases of such substitutions.

Today it is no secret that the central role in the espionage thriller "Salt" was supposed to play ... Tom Cruise. But in the end, he refused, citing employment.

And, in principle, super-spies on the screen and so it was enough.

The character of the heroine changed little during the rewriting, except for the fact that she was made childless (although her "male hypostasis" in the script had children). The studio simply was afraid that the "mommy" in the eyes of the audience would not look like a hard-willed, strong-willed person, so she denied the actress the right to any manifestation of softness. Gender stereotypes are everywhere.
