Dior says no to Julia Roberts
Quote:
Julia Roberts has been dropped from Dior's Hollywood wish-list - because she's not famous enough.
The 'Pretty Woman' star - who is currently starring in the hit Broadway show, 'Three Days Of Rain' - was in negotiations to be the face of a new perfume due to be launched next year, but the firm has apparently pulled out of talks.
An insider told America's New York Post newspaper: "We are not so interested anymore.
"We are looking at lots of famous women to maybe be the face."
Meanwhile, two other A-list stars have been luckier in securing lucrative advertising deals.
Oscar-winning actress Rachel Weisz has been confirmed as the new face of Burberry, while 'Pirates Of The Caribbean' star Keira Knightley has been signed up to promote Chanel cosmetics.The deal with the exclusive French house is worth $1 million dollars to Keira over a three year period.

I think this is all bs, in the first place. How in the world could Dior be associated with what Julia Roberts represent- America's Sweetheart, Pretty Woman. No executive could really think that partnership would be beneficial... then again that last line could be me talking bs as well, look how many celebrity ad campaigns have been done and will be done...

AND Kiera Knightley with Chanel .......

I think it's got more to do with the fact that she's looking a little rough on the edges lately, which has pretty much ruined whatever glamorous image she had in the past. The question whether she's still famous enough or not, probably came second.

She's past it. Shes not particularly good looking but like GlitterGold said her image carried her. Her image is kind of dated now.

I think she is too bored to Dior, she always wears those Armani boring safes dresses to the oscars...so she is obviously past.
And I never liked her anyway...
never did any films that moved me.

I think it's silly to object against Julia because she's not famous enough rather their reasons should be that she just hasn't got the right image..... and it is rather dated and too wholesome for Dior.

I'm not surprised. She hasn't done anything high quality or popular in 2 or 3 years - last achievements would be Closer and Ocean Eleven respectively. She would have been perfect in the '90s (but then, maybe not so much for Dior as some other fashion house) but nowadays there are so much hotter names in Hollywood than Julia Roberts. Also her looks aren't that spectacular anymore and the fact that her Broadway debut wasn't a success doesn't help either.

I only hope they won't be considering Lindsay Lohan...
