Not only does she have a flourishing career that is still going strong, but the Material Girl hitmaker has also starred in multiple movie projects, albeit in lesser-known roles.
While there have been multiple rumors and speculations of her having turned down certain roles in certain famous franchises, Madonna herself confirmed refusing Keanu Reeves‘s $1.7 billion franchise, The Matrix, which is also her greatest regret.
In an appearance for The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the Vogue singer revealed she was indeed offered a role but turned it down, not revealing which role it was.
“I also turned down the role in The Matrix. Can you believe that? I wanted to kill myself.”
Well, we understand her since it is no doubt one of the best movies ever made, a sentiment that the Vogue singer shares.
“That’s like one of the best movies ever made.”
While the singer doesn’t really regret anything in her life, this one incident makes her rethink her life choices.
“A teeny, tiny part of me regrets just that one moment in my life.”
The Matrix is certainly among the most celebrated movies of all time, and it is certainly more than apparent that the Grammy-winner might feel a bit regretful over turning down such a blockbuster franchise.
