Beyonce - Beyonce Lost The Princess And The Frog Role To Dreamgirls Co-star

Singer Beyonce was eager to land a role in The Princess And The Frog, but refused to audition for it.

The Halo hitmaker was one of the frontrunners who were considered for the role of Princess Tiana, Disney's first black princess, in the animated 2009 film, but she lost out to her Dreamgirls co-star Anika Noni Rose, because she wouldn't audition.

Confessions of a Casting Director author Jen Rudin tells the New York Post, "Beyonce 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."
