They ain't here to play no love interest!

It's no secret that men get the lion's share of meaty roles in Hollywood, but the good old gender swap was a studio solution long before the Ghostbusters reboot came along!

Sigourney Weaver's unforgettable portrayal of Ellen Ripley in Alien is widely considered one of the best film heroes of all time, but the badass heroine was originally written as the standard male action hero before director Ridley Scott decided to switch the gender to enhance the story!

Of course, Ripley isn't the only character to get the gender flip in the development stage.

Believe it or not, Angelina Jolie's super-spy role in Salt was originally supposed to be played by Tom Cruise, and Sandra Bullock's political strategist in Our Brand is Crisis was taken from George Clooney's hands!

Find out what other famous actresses landed starring roles originally written for men (below)!

The 45-year-old covers the August issue of GQ — sporting some new salt and pepper locks! — and instead of just any old interview, the magazine rounded up some of Damon's closest industry friends to share their personal memories with the actor.

In one of the stories, the Jason Bourne star and his castmate Julia Stiles recalled meeting the music legend Prince for the first time in London.
