Madonna says turning down ‘Matrix’ role was one of the “biggest regrets” of her career

Madonna has revealed that turning down a role in The Matrix is one of the “biggest regrets” of her career.

The singer was appearing on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon last night (October 7), to promote her new ‘Madame X’ documentary, which dropped yesterday and chronicles the legendary pop star’s recent ‘Madame X’ tour in support of her 14th studio album of the same name.

Speaking to Fallon about turning down the role in the classic 1999 film, Madonna said: “I also turned down the role in The Matrix. Can you believe that? I wanted to kill myself.”

“That’s like one of the best movies ever made,” she added. “A teeny-tiny part of me regrets just that one moment in my life.”

In the same interview, Madonna confirmed that she is writing a movie about 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.”

Elsewhere, last month saw the arrival of the long-awaited trailer for The Matrix: Resurrections.

The highly-anticipated sequel received a full-length trailer featuring Keanu Reeves’ return as Neo and franchise veteran Carrie-Anne Moss as Trinity.

This new instalment is directed by Lana Wachowski, who has helmed every film in the franchise alongside sister Lily. The latter recently opened up about why she chose not to return for this next entry, stating she “needed time away from this industry”.
