Madonna says she regrets turning down a roles in The Matrix & Batman Returns


Madonna, widely regarded as one of the most influential people in pop culture, has left an indelible mark on a variety of artistic areas throughout the course of her 40-year career. The singer-songwriter, who is known for establishing standards in music production and visual presentation, has also dabbled in acting, starring in a number of famous films and television programs. Madonna has disclosed the one event in her life and career that she regrets, despite leaving an indelible mark in the acting world.

The queen of pop confessed to host Jimmy Fallon on Thursday’s edition of NBC’s The Tonight Show that she previously rejected a part in The Matrix.

The singer went on Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show to promote her new documentary, ‘Madame X,’ which was released yesterday and follows the iconic pop artist on her current ‘Madame X’ tour in support of her 14th studio album of the same name.

Madonna said that she was offered an iconic role in Keanu Reeves’ The Matrix and voiced her sorrow for her previous decision. “Can you believe that? That’s like one of the best movies ever made. A teeny-tiny part of me regrets just that one moment in my life,” she told Jimmy Kimmel.

The Matrix is a 1999 sci-fi film about a hacker named Neo (Keanu Reeves) who becomes trapped inside a virtual reality. In addition to Laurence Fishburne, Carrie-Anne Moss, Hugo Weaving, and Joe Pantoliano, the film stars Laurence Fishburne, Carrie-Anne Moss, Hugo Weaving, and Joe Pantoliano. The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions were both released in 2003 after the film’s box office success. The Matrix Resurrections, the fourth film in the franchise, will be released on December 22.



She also confessed that she turned down the roles of Catwoman and Showgirls. “I saw them both and I regret that I turned down Catwoman, that was pretty fierce,” the legendary singer said when asked whether she regretted her choices. The role of Catwoman was then played by Michelle Pfeiffer.

Madonna stated in the same interview that she is creating a film on her own life. “The reason I’m doing it is a bunch of people have tried to write movies about me, but they’re always men,” she said.

“Why would these people make a movie about my life? There’s nothing true in the script, the guy who is making it has no understanding of women, no appreciation of women, no respect for women.”

In other developments, the singer talked openly about turning 60 and overcoming ageism back in May. ““People have always been trying to silence me for one reason or another, whether it’s that ‘I’m not pretty enough’, ‘I don’t sing well enough’, ‘I’m not talented enough’, ‘I’m not married enough’, and now it’s that ‘I’m not young enough’,” Madonna said in an interview with British Vogue.

Her own film has yet to be given a title or a release date. For the time being, fans may see her new concert film, Madame X, which premieres on Paramount+ on Friday.

“Though this film doesn’t acknowledge it, grinding through a lengthy tour with a painful injury must have been traumatic for a performer who’s famously a perfectionist,” NME noted in a review of the new Madame X documentary.

“Madame X feels like an opportunity to end the experience on a positive and empowered note. Throughout Madame X, Madonna is in total command of the stage as she follows her own mantra: “Don’t go for second best, baby.””
