Amy Poehler has discussed her experience of being removed from the original version of the Anchorman film.
Poehler, famous for her role as the dedicated local councilwoman Leslie Knope in Parks and Recreation, had secured a part in the 2004 movie Anchorman: The Legend of Burgundy, but her scenes were ultimately cut from the final release.

“You know, I got cut out of the first Anchorman. I was a young gal, hadn’t even got my teeth fixed, and I played a bank teller that Maya Rudolph and her gang robbed. I got into a fight,” Poehler told Vulture.
“Even back then, I was like, ‘This movie is so long, I’m never going to make it in this.’”

Director Adam McKay told Ballerstatus that around 100 actresses, including Amy Adams, Leslie Mann, and Maggie Gyllenhaal, auditioned for the role of Veronica Corningstone, portrayed by Christina Applegate.
For Christina Applegate, she actually beat out Amy Adams, Leslie Mann and Maggie Gyllenhaal. Amy, at the time, looked like she was only 18. We couldn’t cast her, even though she’s awesome. Maggie; I said is going to win an Academy Awards some day and you don’t put Meryl Streep in a comedy (laughs). Leslie Mann is great as well, but she didn’t have that 50’s wholesome thing that we wanted and Applegate had all that.
Amy Poehler is not known to have auditioned for the role of Veronica Corningstone. In the American television sitcom Married… with Children, Christina Applegate played the role of a news anchor, while her character Kelly Bundy was hired as a weather girl intern during her senior year in high school.

Kate Bosworth wore the same pumps to the 2013 Met Gala.

The Wonderland actress styled her pumps with a pink long-sleeved jacquard mini dress from Balmain.
She accessorized with an embellished clutch from the same French fashion house, a gold belt, and XIV Karats earrings.

While Tina went business with her pumps, Kate went girly and eccentric. Who do you think styled these classic black heels better?
