One of the most versatile actors of all the times and a legend disclosed something which nobody would have thought, and it’s quite astonishing too. Brad Pitt has done some phenomenon roles every done and yes he did succeed in all of them, but this took the fans to awe when Brad Pitt revealed that he passed on the character in the matrix which Keanu Reeves played in the matrix. People may not have regretted at that time, but the mere fact that Brad Pitt could have performed the role does stir emotions.
Speaking at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival he revealed the details as to why he passed on the role. Fans still think Brad would have better a better choice among the probables to whom the part was offered, be it Will Smith or Leonardo DiCaprio. The auditorium packed with fans went crazy when Brad Pitt revealed this fact.
Pitt was in the town due to his latest movie Once upon a time in Hollywood, which is reportedly his best acting, and it was well-received by the fans and critics. Though he talked about several things right from his struggling days to this day, the most sensational news which made headings was his refusal to work in The Matrix.
Refusal of the role and the reason behind it.
When asked repeatedly about a role which he passed on, he disclosed with a caveat that he would tell only one, and then he disclosed that he was offered a position in the matrix which he passed on and Keanu Reeves ultimately played it. Although he published the role, he passed on, but he was humble enough to acknowledge that the character wasn’t meant for him. As usual, he answered in The Brad Pitt way, humble but astonishing.
We all remember Neo’s character played by Keanu Reeves, and at this point in time, it’s awkward to imagine anybody else, but the role was indeed passed on by some great actors. The Matrix series has been the most liked and top-grossing film ever made in Hollywood. The three movies which were part of The Matrix series- The Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions broke the ceiling with total revenue soaring to a whopping $1.6 billion. The movies had a fan base across the globe, and there couldn’t have been a more successful movie, and Keanu Reeves deserves the credit for it.
The 56-year-old actor’s chilling revelation did take the hardcore Matrix fans by nerve but in no possible way, Brad Pitt tried to undermine the movies or the actors. Brad Pitt himself has done brilliant acting in his recent film Once upon a time in Hollywood, for which he is nominated for Oscars, and that’s no less fete for the actor. But this news did evoke our emotions and fans must have started to imagine Brad Pitt in the matrix and how different it would have been if he had played a role in the matrix?
