Keanu Reeves further continued that it’s too late and he is good with it now. He was told that things weren’t really working out as they hoped to be and Reeves was on the verge of getting dropped from his first Hollywood movie as well.
Jackman to not portray the role of Wolverine?
Meanwhile, Jackman too confessed that he was on the verge of getting sacked from playing the role of Wolverine during the making of 2000’s X-Men. He said that he was angry and started complaining to his wife after reaching home.
And, what his wife replied was inspiring indeed. He recalled, “She listened to me very patiently for about an hour and finally she just said, ‘Listen, I think you have just got to trust yourself. You are worrying way too much about what everything else is thinking. Just go back to the character, focus on that, trust your instinct… you’ve got this’.”
