Beyonce Turned Down a Role In ‘Beauty and the Beast,' Director Bill Condon Says
By Jennifer Drysdale
Beyonce doesn't play second fiddle (or feather duster) to anyone!
The 36-year-old singer turned down the role of Plumette the feather duster in the recent live-action Beauty in the Beast, Bill Condon told Yahoo Entertainment on Tuesday.
"It wasn't a big enough part," the director confessed. "She would have been a good feather duster." The role ultimately went to Beyond the Lights star Gugu Mbatha-Raw.
Condon, who directed Bey in Dreamgirls, can't believe the 2006 musical is the only one she's ever done. "Isn't that weird? God, it seems crazy," he said, adding that "see if Beyonce is available" should be on every musical director's checklist.
