Ridley Scott's star-studded thriller "The Counselor" hit theaters Oct.25 but audiences saw a slightly different version than what could have been.
The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Cameron Diaz initially shot the film "with a full-on Rihanna-style accent — but Fox execs blanched, forcing her to dub her work later, much to her chagrin."
So Diaz was sent back into a recording booth to soften her accent.
Scott's rep declined comment to THR, while Diaz's camp didn't respond.
One scene the studio execs left in? Diaz's infamous sex scene with a Ferrari.
But not even that could save the film from being a box office bomb.
After famed filmmaker Ridley Scott spent $25 million making the film, it has only brought in $18 million worldwide since opening two weeks ago.
The poor performance at the box office was a bit of a surprise, given the film featured an all-star cast that included not only Diaz, but Michael Fassbender, Penélope Cruz, Javier Bardem and Brad Pitt.
