During a 2015 reunion, the cast revealed that the romantic comedy was originally supposed to be a movie on drugs titled '3,000'.

Julia also revealed that the movie had a different ending planned for it. "In the original script, Richard's character throws my character out of the car. Threw the money on top of her and drove away and the credits rolled." - Julia said.

The on-screen couple also recalled their favourite scene "Driving around Hollywood in the car was pretty hilarious," said Julia.

"Basically, any scene where Julia was walking,"  Richard added.

27 years after its release and watching "Pretty Woman" never feels old.
