World’s pop icon shared her views as she made an appearance on Jimmy Fallon on Thursday’s episode of The Tonight Show.
The 63-year-old pop star surprised many as she revealed that she turned down a role in The Matrix.
“Can you believe that?” she told Fallon, adding, “That’s like one of the best movies ever made. A teeny-tiny part of me regrets just that one moment in my life.”
Released in 1999, The Matrix, starring Keanu Reeves in the lead, grossed $171.5 million domestically and $466.3 million globally, according to Box Office Mojo, and also earned a number of awards.
Madonna also revealed that she also missed out on playing Catwoman in Batman Returns and a leading role in Showgirls, though she only regrets the former.
“I saw them both and I regret that I turned down Catwoman, that was pretty fierce,” the Grammy-winner confessed. “Showgirls? No.”
Upon the work front, Madonna is back in the director’s chair, directing a film about her life.
She has directed two other films: Filth and Wisdom (2008) and W.E. (2011).
