One very stupid Warner Bros. executive, apparently.
As part of #shareyourrejections on Twitter, screenwriter John August told the story of how his Catwoman movie got voted down 20 years ago. Because the exec wanted Sarah Michelle Gellar instead of Pfeiffer. And she had to be washing her hair.
(Also, he shares that the Gellar-obsessed exec had nothing to do with her 2004 hit movie "The Grudge," in which she washes her hair. But we bet the unnamed exec owns that on Blu-ray.)
Here's the whole Twitter thread.
