Divine also wanted to play Tracy Turnblad but the director felt that the movie would be better if Tracy was played by another actress.
"Hairspray" was Ricki Lake's first movie. One of the main reasons that Ricki got the part of Tracy was her confidence. She didn't seem shy or as held back as many of the other actresses who auditioned.
