Katie Holmes Practically Played Reese Witherspoon’s Function in ‘Cruel Intentions’

Reese Witherspoon was the ideal actor to perform Annette Hargrove in the ‘90s teen cult vintage Cruel Intentions. Performing reverse her then-boyfriend (and foreseeable future husband) Ryan Phillippe, Witherspoon embodied Annette, a principled youthful girl who is seduced by Phillippe’s scheming Sebastian Valmont character. But if studio executives had had their way, Witherspoon may well by no means have been in the motion picture. At first, they desired Katie Holmes to play the Annette part.
