'Pretty Woman': 25 Things You Didn't Know About the Julia Roberts Classic

23 March 2015 4:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

No one expected much from "Pretty Woman" when they were making it. It was a modestly-budgeted romantic comedy whose stars were Richard Gere (then in the depths of a career slump) and Eric Roberts's kid sister. But when the movie was released, 25 years ago this week (on March 23, 1990), the project was transformed from overlooked stepsister to box office royalty. Mirroring her on-screen Cinderella makeover, Julia Roberts went from little-known ingenue to queen of Hollywood. Plus, the film saved Gere's career and (along with 1989's "When Harry Met Sally") revived the romantic comedy genre in Hollywood.

A quarter-century later, "Pretty Woman" remains a fan favorite, one you've seen a million times on cable. Even so, there's much you may not know about the movie -- the difficulties in casting (Gere and Roberts weren't anyone's first, second, or third choices), crises on the set, what was left out of the final film, »

$3,000, porn parodies and Roy Orbison: 25 facts about Pretty Woman

23 March 2015 2:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Can you believe it? Pretty Woman, the movie that turned Julia Roberts into a rom-com queen, was first released in cinemas 25 years ago today (March 23).

To mark the occasion, Digital Spy has unearthed 25 fascinating facts about the beloved 1990 film. Read on to find out why Vivian is a Disney princess, how Superman himself Christopher Reeve almost played Edward and the film's straight-to-the-point title in China.

1. The original script for Pretty Woman was titled $3,000 and was a dark drama about prostitution in La. Vivian was a drug addict trying to go clean to save up money for a trip to Disneyland. Disney-owned Touchstone Pictures developed the idea into a more conventional romantic comedy, meaning Vivian is something of an edgier Disney princess.

2. Werner Herzog claimed he was approached to direct Pretty Woman by Richard Gere when it was still being touted as a dark cautionary tale. Herzog being Herzog, though, we »

22 March 2015 10:04 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Pretty Woman turns 25!

Can you believe it? It's been 25 years since the Gary Marshall romantic comedy first swept us off our feet. This year marks the silver anniversary of the movie that catapulted Julia Roberts into superstardom when it first premiered in 1990. The whole world fell for Roberts' irresistible smile and Et got to see it first on the set a year earlier.

At just 21 years old, Roberts was cast as Vivian Ward, a hooker with a heart of gold who is romanced by Edward Lewis, a millionaire tycoon played by Richard Gere. "He's really supportive, giving actor," she told Et in 1989. "It's so nice to be there with someone who, I feel like when I feel good about my work he'll support that."

Pretty Woman Was Supposed To Be A Much Grittier Film

21 March 2015 8:27 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

P { margin-bottom: 0.08in; }A:link { } It's the 25th anniversary of Pretty Woman and as a result, we're looking back at the romantic comedy responsible for launching the amazingly successful career of its leading lady Julia Roberts. Among the many interesting details surrounding the Gary Marshall-directed film is the fact that it was initially supposed to be much, much grittier. In remembering the 1990 film Pretty Woman, fans probably likely recall it as a delightful romance story following the wealthy businessman and silver fox Edward Lewis (Richard Gere), who falls for his incredibly lovable escort with a heart of gold, Vivian Ward (Roberts). While that's essentially what the movie became, it wasn't always so glossy and romantic. In fact the film wasn't even originally supposed to be a romantic comedy, but rather a dark drama. According to Yahoo Movies, the original script written by J.F. Lawton was actually titled $3,000, in reference »

Numerous news outlets are claiming the 32-year-old performer has been photoshopping her face on celebrities' bodies and reposting their pics on her Instagram as if they were her own. As of late, the Anna Allen Instagram account is not in service.

The actress' alleged web of lies was discovered when she started sharing pics from the Oscars.

According to formulaTV, Anna cropped Lupita Nyong'o's 2014 invitation to the Academy Awards and posted as her own on Instagram -- though failed to crop out the year. "So it's official," the caption reads, purportedly from Anna's account. "I'm invited to the Oscars!"

Dev Patel: 'Chemistry with Dame Maggie is best I've had in a movie'

26 February 2015 10:04 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Dev Patel has spoken about his experience of working with Dame Maggie Smith and Richard Gere in The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.

Patel reprises his role as Sonny, the overeager young owner of a hotel for British retirees, while Dame Maggie Smith stars as Muriel, Sonny's new co-manager.

Describing the on-screen partnership with Dame Maggie, the 24-year-old actor told Digital Spy: "It's still an ensemble cast but Sonny is at the centre of it and I'd say Maggie is too. They run the hotel together. I mean talk about chemistry - it's some of the best chemistry I've ever had in a movie.

"They're quite an odd couple but they're put together really well. It's quite beautiful because she not only becomes a business partner doing damage control, but he also looks at her as a kind of mother figure."

Tamsin Greig and Richard Gere joined the cast for the sequel. »

Movies This Week: February 20-26, 2015

20 February 2015 12:00 PM, PST | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

The Austin Film Society kicks off a busy week of programming at the Marchesa tonight with the Agfa Endangered Fest II. The event will feature four films from the vaults of the American Genre Film Archive. Everything Is Terrible! is swinging by the Marchesa on Saturday night on their new "Legends" tour to bring you the best discoveries from the VHS era.

From Elizabeth: "Afs is also bringing back 'The Sepia Screen' this weekend, a showcase for some of the movies made for black audiences during America's segregated past. The films shown in July were from Smu's collection; the selections for this month are not part of that bunch. Series co-programmers Lars Nilsen and Dshanya Reese are certain to talk about the historical relevance of the works they selected and the people involved. The show starts at 2 pm on Sunday [tickets. Perhaps this would be a good option for counterprogramming on the day when the whitest Oscars in years occurs."

Miley Cyrus Rejects Pretty Woman Style Snobbery on Rodeo Drive, Calls Feminism "the Greatest Thing Ever"

19 February 2015 7:37 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Miley Cyrus is rich, y'all, but even she gets the stink eye from those snooty salespeople on Rodeo Drive! That's part of the reason why, the 22-year-old singer tells Australia's Sunday Style, she lets her stylist shop for her clothes. "You've seen Pretty Woman, obviously," she says. "Well, they [the high-end sales associates] are actually like that." "If you walk in, they give you the worst look you've ever seen," she says, "and I am too outspoken to deal with those kinds of people." Generally, though, Miley's more than happy to deal with other "females," she says, exclaiming, "I f--king love them." "Someone came up to me »

Rodeo Drive is one of the most famous shopping destinations in the world — a storied enclave of luxury goods and extravagance — but Miley Cyrus, for one, could take it or leave it.

Review: 50 Shades of Grey

16 February 2015 6:33 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

This review originally appeared in Nathaniel's column at Towleroad. It is reprinted here with a couple of minor adjustments.

Spoiler Alert: Nothing happens in 50 Shades Of Grey. Nothing at all. The property’s idiot savant genius may be how well it achieves this tabula rasa narrative and aesthetic zen state. Its slate is so blank that the audience is free to project whatever they’d like on to it including the drama. Byoe: Bring Your Own Everything. Perhaps this accounts for its enormous “event” like status at the box office. 

We begin with an embarrassingly botched interview between a young woman who we're supposed to think of as a frumpy plain jane, an unstylish deer in the headlights if you will, and the snappily dressed über intimidating businessperson who will decide her fate. (Think The Devil Wears Prada plus sexual tension minus jokes). Naive and beautiful young Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson »
