A few years can make a difference...
At the height of her career Winona Ryder turned down some major films roles, that maybe now she would be so happy to be offered.

The Assasin(B Fonda), Sabrina (lead), The Conspiracy Theory(J.Roberts), The Object Of My Affection(lead), Sleepy Hollow(lead)

Quite a few stars can be very picky, I am sure we could name a few well known male stars who have turned down many great film roles .

Here is a list of films the late, great Steve Mc Queen turned down, I wonder what films he would have been doing now!

Breakfast At Tiffanys(lead), Bob and Carol and Ted and Alice, Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid(R.Redford role), Mackenna's Gold(G.Peck role), King Rat(G.Segal), The Victors(lead), Dirty Harry(lead), One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest, Close Encounters Of Third Kind(lead), A Bridge Too Far(?), Apocalypse Now(M.Sheen role), The French Connection(lead), Superman(lead) , The Gauntlet(lead), Raise The Titanic(lead)Sorcerer(lead) Ocean's Eleven(lead) - Play Misty For Me(lead) - Jaws(lead)
