Amanda Seyfried was offered the role of Gamora in Guardians of the Galaxy but she turned it down.
Apparently, not every actor is particularly fond of dressing as a green alien all the time.
Although the opportunity to play heroes from places far beyond earth sounds appealing, the fact that you gotta be willing to sit on make up chairs for hours upon hours is certainly not cut out for everyone.
I turned down one [superhero role] once and they haven’t called back since. And it was a big’un. I don’t regret it because I didn’t want to be green for six months out of every year.
The 'Mean Girls' star added, "They tell beautiful stories through superheroes, and my daughter’s now really obsessed with superheroes now, and part of me wishes I’d done it, but the other part of me is like ‘I had a life to live’ and I don’t think I would’ve been happy."
Gamora is a crucial character in the MCU, first appearing in the standalone Guardians films before crossing over to the Avengers Infinity Saga.
The daughter of Thanos strove to be a better person than her adopted father, thus escaped his clutches to live her own life, prior to falling in love with 'Star-Lord'. She was reluctantly sacrificed in Infinity War by the Mad Titan in exchange for the Soul Stone.
