Katherine Heigl was initially cast as the lead character, Adaline, and Angela Lansbury was cast to play Adaline’s daughter.
However, Heigl withdrew from the project, and rumors circulated that she had been fired, though both Lakeshore and Heigl denied the allegations. The Roswell actress later explained that her departure was due to the recent adoption of her daughter.

After Heigl’s departure, Natalie Portman was offered the lead role, but she declined the offer.

Instead, director Lee Toland Krieger discovered Anthony Ingruber’s impression of Ford on YouTube and approached him for the role.
The American film director and screenwriter, who is also known for the films The Vicious Kind (2009) and Celeste and Jesse Forever (2012), had been imitating Ford since he was 15 years old.

The then-28-year-old actress stepped out of the Crosby Hotel before her appearance on NBC’s “Late Night with Seth Meyers.”
She looked hot in a skin-tight black dress, which showcased her burgeoning baby bump.
Blake picked a festive-looking midi dress from Versace’s Fall 2016 collection.It featured cutouts and sheer panels down the sides with shimmering paillette sequins in blue, red, and white colors. The slinky frock also had a revealing plunging neckline and a strategically placed slit below the chest.

“I met Obama and I had my whole speech planned,” Blake told Seth Meyers about embarrassing herself in front of President Barack Obama at a dinner.
“He was introducing himself to everyone and they were talking about the way that they were gonna change the world. He came to me and I was just like ‘I… Hope!’ It was just like me summoning hope for myself, it was awful.”
“The only thing I could think of was that he’d left my husband a voicemail when he was running for president. So I said, ‘You left my husband a voicemail!’ And he was like, ‘…Cool!’ And I said, ‘And he deleted it!’ It was just like, why did I say that?”

Blake brought additional color to her ensemble by accessorizing with teal earrings, beaded bracelets, and a couple of statement rings.
Taylor Swift’s good friend wore her long tresses in voluminous curls and completed the look with dark mascara, eyeliner, and pink lipstick.
Aside from a series of stunning designer dresses, Blake has also been giving us serious shoe envy. This time, she strutted her stuff in a pair of Giuseppe Zanotti “Lauren” sandals.
