Beyoncé Was Offered A Role In The "Beauty And The Beast" Remake But Turned It Down

"It wasn't a big enough part."

"...It wasn’t a big enough part," he said, explaining why she turned it down. "She would have been a good feather duster.”

Why not just give Beyoncé EVERY DAMN PART IN THE MOVIE? You can call it Beyoncé and the Beyoncé, for all I care. I'd watch the hell out of that!

For what it's worth, Bill Condon previously directed Beyoncé in Dreamgirls, and is a huge fan of hers. I guess ya can't blame the guy for trying!

BTW: If you're curious, the role of Plumette ultimately went to Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and she was awesome.
