Before being given the role of Betty Brant in the Sam Raimi Spider-Man movies, Elizabeth Banks also auditioned to play Mary Jane Watson, Spidey's main love interest. Here's the reason she didn't get the role, according to her.

In the days before we were rebooting superhero movies every seven and a half months, Tobey Maguire was Spider-Man, and Sam Raimi was the mercurial creative force pulling the strings (or, uh, webs). The team made one really good movie and one really, really good movie before stumbling hard with a franchise-killing third movie. Show More Summary
