Brad Pitt Turned Down Keanu Reeves' 'Matrix' Role

Brad Pitt is revealing one huge role he turned down that went on to become a huge success.

“I’ll give you one, only one, because I really believe it was never mine. It’s not mine. It’s someone else’s and they go and make it. I really do believe in that. I really do. But I did pass on the Matrix. I took the red pill,” Brad said (via People).

Brad didn’t say what role he turned down, but it is presumed to be Neo, which ended up going to Keanu Reeves.

Brad isn’t the only A-list star that turned down the role of Neo!
