Off The Cliff: How the Making of Thelma & Louise Drove Hollywood to the Edge, by Becky Aikman, chronicles how Jodie Foster and Michelle Pfeiffer were slated for the lead roles, but had to turn them down after production was delayed.

Interestingly, she revealed turning down the films To Die For, which earned Nicole Kidman a Golden Globe, and The Silence of the Lambs for which Jodie Pfeiffer says she had to pass on Thelma & Louise because it conflicted with shooting Love Field. “ I still can ’ t watch Thelma & Louise ,” she said.

Michelle Pfeiffer can't watch Thelma & Louise because she had to pass on the role of a lifetime.

The actress tells Variety she was forced to turn down the 1991 film, because she had already signed up to play a Dallas, Texas housewife in Love Field - a role that earned her an Oscar nomination alongside Thelma & Louise stars Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis.

"I still can’t watch Thelma & Louise," she said. "It was a direct conflict, so it was one film or the other. It still kills me. You can’t always do everything. You’ve got to give something up."

Meanwhile, there's one character she'd like to have another crack at - Catwoman.

The actress slipped into Selina Kyle's costume for Batman Returns in 1992 and even put a live bird in her mouth for one killer scene - something she wouldn't do again if the role came back to her.
