Faith Hill Nearly Swore Off Acting After ‘Stepford Wives’… Until She Read The Script From Yellowstone ‘1883’

Faith Hill 1883

Even though we all know Tim McGraw and Faith Hill as a country music power couple, whose music we’ve all known and loved for decades now. I mean, does anything take you back like a little “The Way You Love Me?” Don’t act like you don’t belt out “Breathe” at the top of your lungs when you’re alone in the car.

It also isn’t a secret that the two have shown interest in acting over the years.

Tim starred in the 2009 heart warmer The Blindside, and had rolls in other movies like Country Strong, Friday Night Lights, The Shack, Four Christmases, (his best role), Flick-A, and a number of others.

For Faith, she starred in Stepford Wives, and the independent movie Dixieland.

And of course, us Yellowstone fans know the two as James and Margaret Dutton, the original Duttons on the spinoff series 1883. 

With that being said, there was a point in time where Faith truly believed she was done with acting, due to her strenuous schedule and a bad experience on Stepford Wives.

She explained on The Kelly Clarkson Show:

“My career took off, no time had babies, kept on having babies, felt like I was having babies all the time, and I had done a couple of things, I did ‘Stepford Wives’ with an amazing cast, amazing cast.

It wasn’t the best experience, so I said I will never ever do anything like that because it took so long.

It’s the waiting for me, you have to understand, I cannot… I have to be busy doing stuff. Anyway, I did an independent thing called ‘Dixieland.'”

She then explained how the script from 1883 turned her back on to acting:

“I’ve read a lot of scripts over the years, nothing hit me or the timing wasn’t right, and then for the script to have been so incredibly well-written, I honestly had never read anything like it.

So we just made the decision to do it.”

So props to Taylor Sheridan for writing an incredible script.

Who knows who would’ve played Margaret Dutton if the script wasn’t appealing to Faith Hill.
