There have been a lot of bad movies being released over the years and there will no doubt be plenty more bad movies coming our way in the near future. However, when we look back at all the bad movies that have been released over the years, there is one that really does stand out to us, above all the others.
Way back in 1995, the movie Showgirls hit the big screen and, as well as being arguably the worst movie of the century, it also pretty much ruined the career of the lead actress, former Saved By the Bell actress Elizabeth Berkley. However, what you might not know, is that Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron was very keen on the role.
Director Paul Verhoven was talking to New York Daily News, when he explained to them, "Charlize also auditioned, and I don't recall her having any problem with the nudity at all. She was good and wanted the part, but basically she was not well known enough at the time and just did not fit the part, so we said no."
He added, "I have full respect for Charlize, but if she had been offered the part then she would probably have been chewed up in the same way they treated Elizabeth. She was very lucky that she did not get the part. I wish Charlize congratulations for that because it would have been a miserable 20 years for her!"
Since then, Charlize Theron has gone on to get nominated for two Oscars, winning one along the way, while poor Elizabeth Berkley has all but vanished from out memories.
