Audrey Tatou Nearly Missed Out on 'Da Vinci Code' Role
However, the French beauty found herself being chased by director Ron Howard, who was determined to have her in the film - even though other actresses were desperately trying to win the coveted role.
Tatou says, "I didn't refuse to see him. He was doing one day of casting where he was going to meet everyone, but I was in Mexico and I said it's not even worth it for me to go. I didn't see how it could work. I thought this character had my strong-mindedness but it didn't go further than that. And I thought at 27 that I was a bit too young when Ron contacted me. To me, Sophie was older."
