Wait a minute, we could have seen Beyonce on the big screen?!
So why didn’t it happen? The role was too small. Beyonce turned down the role of “feather duster” in Beauty and The Beast which ended up going to Gugu Mbatha-Raw.
Bill Condon, who previously worked with Beyonce in Dream Girls, said he tried to cast her but “it wasn’t a big enough part.”
Maybe there is more to the story though. Casting for the film happened in 2015 around the same time Beyonce was writing Lemonade.
Feather Duster or Belle, I think she would shine no matter what her role is!
