Julia Roberts' Pretty Woman character, Vivian Ward, was supposed to die of an overdose in the original ending of the classic 1990 film, former Walt Disney Studios chairman Jeffrey Katzenberg revealed on Thursday, March 2. "I can't tell you how much time was spent debating," Katzenberg said at a Q&A session. "As a script, Pretty Woman was an R-rated movie about a hooker on Hollywood Boulevard. By the way, in the original version — it's pretty dark — I think she died of an overdose." The film studio executive explained that Disney wasn't thrilled with the grim ending — for obvious reasons. "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," he said. "But, as they say, the rest is history." In the end, Pretty Woman turned out to be a huge success (and made Roberts into a superstar) and remains Disney's highest-grossing R-rated film to date.
