Julianne Moore is well known for her roles in The Big Lebowski and Children Of Men, which have become classics. She has received several nominations and awards for her roles in various movies, and even won an Oscar for Best Actress. However, such achievements do not automatically guarantee an actor roles in Hollywood films. Julianne is one such example. During an interview on Andy Cohen's show, Watch What Happens Live, she revealed that she never actually abandon her role in Can You Ever Forgive Me?; the director had fired her! Her role was later given to Melissa McCarthy, one of the stars of Bridesmaids. Ironically, however, the director, Nicole Holofcener, was herself replaced by Marielle Heller. When asked about her feelings, Julianne said that while it had hurt her, she understood that they had different expectations from the film.
