Almost Got the Part

Reese Witherspoon

While the role of Amy Dunne in Gone Girl ended up going to Rosamund Pike, the film's producer Reese Witherspoon told The Hollywood Reporter that she was open to playing the part.

The Oscar winner explained that director David Fincher didn't think she was the right fit to play Ben Affleck's missing wife. "We had a long conversation where [Fincher] was like, 'You're not right for it. And this is why,'" she revealed to THR. "And I actually completely agreed with him."

Reese added that Charlize Theron, Emily Blunt and Natalie Portman were also considered for the role.
