*Dreamgirls director Bill Condon has revealed that Beyoncé turned down a role in the live-action movie for Beauty & The Beast because he wanted her to be the feather duster! 

In an interview with Yahoo! Entertainment about how Beyoncé has been cast in so many musicals, Condon said, “Isn’t that weird? God, it seems crazy! I even tried to get her into Beauty and the Beast, but it wasn’t a big enough part. She would have been a good feather duster.” 

Gugu Mbatha-Raw ended up playing that role in the film. 

He also spoke about Bey’s visual album, Lemonade, saying: “You look at something like Lemonade: that is brilliant. That is a brilliant new direction for movie musicals.” 

It has been rumored for some time that Beyoncé has been in talks to play Nala in a live-action The Lion King movie.
