The Real Reason Jodie Foster Didn’t Play Princess Leia In Star Wars

While Jodie Foster had the opportunity to jump on the Star Wars train before it became the juggernaut of a franchise it is today, she doesn’t regret how things played out. “I don’t think I’m going to be on my deathbed going, like, ‘Damn! I didn’t do ‘Star Wars,'” the performer said in a 2007 interview with Empire Magazine (via Vogue).

Foster is also a fan of how “Star Wars” turned out, complete with Carrie Fisher’s performance as Princess Leia. “You know, they did an amazing job,” she said on “The Tonight Show.” “I don’t know how good I would have been. I know I might have had different hair.”

During the extensive casting process, Foster was just one of many names considered for Leia before Fisher netted the part. That list reportedly includes major names like Meryl Streep, Glenn Close, Sigourney Weaver, Farrah Fawcett, and several other famous stars.
