Although Pretty Woman was a given a Cinderella-story finish, ex Disney studio head Jeffrey Katzenberg has revealed it originally ended with a much darker twist.
‘As a script, Pretty Woman was an R-rated movie about a hooker on Hollywood Boulevard,’ he said according to Page Six.
‘In the original version - it’s pretty dark - I think she died of an overdose,’ he added.
‘So convincing [people] that we should make that at the Walt Disney Co., and that it’s a fairy tale and a princess movie, a lot of people had a hard time seeing it… But, as they say, the rest is history.’
In the iconic 90s film, a rich businessman (played by Richard Gere) ends up falling for a street worker (played by Julia Roberts).
