Jamie Foxx has revealed that the performer was considered for the lead role in a proposed ‘A Star is Born‘ remake.
His surprising story below…
Lady Gaga picked up the role of leading lady in the story’s latest retelling after Beyonce parted ways with the picture but now, according to Jamie, it was Aaliyah who was originally sought after.
Foxx revealed plans to reboot the project back in the year 2000 during an interview he gave to generate attention for his idea. Aaliyah was filming ‘Queen of the Damned’ at the time.
Beyonce was approached to star in the picture some time later with Clint Eastwood at the helm but decided not to go any further with it after years of delays. This, giving the multi-talented Gaga access to the part she is now receiving praise for.
