Dave Bautista Is Afraid He’s Too “Unattractive” To Star In A Rom-Com, And The Internet Is Out To Prove Him Wrong
By Kristen Harris,
On Monday, Knock at the Cabin star Dave Bautista told Page Six that he's worried he's too "unattractive" to play the lead in a rom-com. But honestly, he couldn't be more wrong.
He said, "I know I'm not your typical rom-com lead...I'm a little rough around the edges. But I always, you know, I look in the mirror and I say, I ask myself, 'Am I that unattractive? Is there something that unappealing about me that excludes me from these parts?'"
"I don't know. It's just never come my way. I've never had an offer to do a rom-com. I still have high hopes. I'll just keep searching."
This isn't the first time he's talked about his dream to star in a rom-com. He tweeted about it back in 2021.
Dave may worry that he's not the right fit for the genre, but his fans (myself included) couldn't disagree more. Here's my pitch:
Dave plays a famous action star who retires from the spotlight and moves to a small town so his daughter can grow up with a "normal life." The daughter, who dreams of being an actor, has a hard time making friends at her new school, so he signs her up for community theater. His love interest is the community theater director, played by Judy Greer, who ropes him into helping her with the production of Cinderella when the actor playing Prince Charming drops out. They initially butt heads, but they realize they're in love when the actor playing Cinderella fails to make it to opening night, forcing Judy to step into the role.
On Twitter, others have been calling for Dave to be cast in a rom-com — and they've been dreaming up their own plots too:
