15 Actresses Who Were Replaced in Big Movies

Liv Tyler for Uma Thurman in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)

Peter Jackson's preferred casting had Uma Thurman playing elf babe Arwen. Thurman had to resign from the role when she became pregnant, and Liv Tyler stepped in to don the pointy ears. Interestingly, the other major female elf, Galadriel, was going to be played by Lucy Lawless, but that role went to Cate Blanchett after Lawless became pregnant.
