If you Love Pretty Woman? It Would Be A Big Mistake To Miss The Facts


1.A Different Movie Altogether

Nowadays, Pretty Woman is known as a classic romantic comedy. But it certainly didn’t start out that way. The original script was actually pretty dark. It was a cautionary tale about drugs and prostitution. The main character of Vivian was an addict.

In the script, Edward paid Vivian $3,000 to spend the week with him and not do any drugs. It ends with him getting fed up with her and dropping her on the side of the road. Her best friend Kit even dies of a drug overdose. We’re glad that version of the movie didn’t happen. Sounds depressing.

2. What’s In A Name?

It might be the romantic comedy we all know and love, but the movie Pretty Woman was almost called something else entirely. The original title for the movie was “3000”, a reference to the price Vivian charged.

Julia Roberts’ character, Vivian, charged Edward $3,000 to spend the week with him. But during testing, it turned out that the original title of the movie, 3000, was too confusing for audiences, which makes sense. Good thing they changed it.

Almost Molly

Before Julia Roberts landed the part of Vivian Ward, the role was offered to Molly Ringwald. Coming off the success of Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club and Pretty in Pink, the actress would have been a big-name addition to the cast of Pretty Woman.

Ringwald saw an early version of the script and wasn’t interested, so she turned the offer down. But she says she has no regrets about it. “Julia Roberts is what makes that movie. It was her part. Every actor hopes for a part that lets them shine like that,” the actress stated.
