Beyoncé Expected An Offer For A Role In Princess & The Frog Without Auditioning?!

That sounds so unlikely!

The part of Princess Tiana in Disney's Princess & The Frog was a highly coveted role that many big named actresses auditioned for.

But, the casting director for the movie, Jen Rudin wrote in her book Confessions of a Casting Director that Beyoncé actually expected an offer rather than auditioning for the role like everyone else!

Which doesn't sound like Bey at all! She's always so humble about everything in her life!

Jen dished on the whole audition process:

“Beyoncé expected an offer, but wouldn’t audition and so she didn’t get one. Tyra Banks, Jennifer Hudson wanted it. Alicia Keys auditioned three times . . . They had to sing, so we made it clear they needed sheet music. Tyra came in with a CD, but it didn’t matter because she was so pretty and nice.

It went to Anika Noni Rose, who was the most qualified.”

Ouch. She outed Queen Bey just like that!

It definitely does not sound like something Blue Ivy's momma would do! She's one of the world's biggest popstars and even though she does sing about being a diva she totes does NOT act like one!

But even if it is true, we don't see why you wouldn't extend an offer, everyone knows that gurl can totes sing!

It doesn't matter anyway, Bey went on to play a queen in the movie Epic.

That's one step higher than a princess!

    She was not extended an offer because she did not follow the rules! It would not be fair to any other person who wanted it for her to get an offer based on her just saying she wanted the part. Yes, people know she can sing. So can Jennifer Hudson, and Alicia Keys! That is NOT the point. The point is you don't get to fly by with your name alone. Maybe her sound was not what they wanted for the role!

    Beyonce would've probably received the role had she not had a stick up her ass! Seriously, she is not an "A" Hollywood celebrity to think they would just hand it to her. This is not a Tyler Perry Made movie. I would've love to se Tyra Banks take the role but they made a good choice selecting Anika.

    Or maybe they just didn't want her. Her speaking voice isn't exactly stellar. The girl they got was great - Beyonce would not have improved things.

    Since when can Beyonce act? She talks like she's got marbles in her mouth. Just cuz one can dance and pose doesn't mean they can act. Glad she didn't get the part.

    of course she did; just like she expects hit records without actually writing ANY of her music and EXACTLY like the time she had a baby via ME!

    She looks too old for being a Disney Princess and not even mention how huge she looks.

    That sounds exactly like her, actually. Oh well, things turned out like they should've.

    Sometimes seeing the person in the role with the music at an audition really helps give the director(s) and casting a good visual on how someone will fit the part as they envision it.

    This audition was a silly power trip. One just needs to access Youtube or any other media to see what these ladies can do. I think those who participated were good sports, but I'm with Beyonce on this one.

    Beyonce is a DIVA! You don't expect her to audition like a desperate wanna be actress, her box over sales are now over a billion so I think she is doing fine. And why is this news after over a year of princess and the frog? Unless of course they are seeking attention. Since when do they reveal who wanted the role or what does down behind the scenes. This is why I like beyonce cus I know she won't reply these desperate fools.
