Hollywood LOVES “La La Land” with the musical snagging a total of fourteen Oscar nominations!
However one A-lister might not be so fond- a source says that 26-year-old ‘Beauty and the Beast’ actress Emma Watson was originally tapped for the movie’s lead but was replaced because she was too demanding. According to the source: “Watson was offered the lead female role, but she initially wouldn’t commit. Then she began making all these crazy demands, like rehearsals for the film must be done in London — for a film called ‘La La Land!’ They jumped through hoops to make it work with her, but she just didn’t feel the film was right for her. Producers finally cast Emma Stone — and once she was on board, Ryan Gosling jumped at the chance to work with her again.”
The source continued to talk about Watson being replaced by 28-year-old Ms. Stone: “Now Emma Watson is raising hell with her agents for not securing the role for her — even though it was the actor’s fault for being too demanding.”
