Matthew McConaughey is telling all about his “Titanic” provino.
Apparendo su “Letteralmente! with Rob Lowe” di giovedì, McConaughey went on-record to clarify how exactly his audition for the lead role in “Titanic” went down.
“So I went and read with Kate Winslet [who starred as Rose] and it was not one of the auditions — they filmed it so it was like into screen test time,” McConaughey, 51, spiegato. “After we left, sai, it was one of those ones where they, piace, followed me and when we got outside they were like, ‘That went great.’ intendo, kind of like hugs. I really thought it was going to happen. It did not.”
Though the actor was led to believe the role would go to him based on his audition, the lead role of Jack ultimately went to Leonardo DiCaprio. The actor then took the time to shoot down rumors once and for all that he turned down the role.
“I asked [James] Cameron about this, because the gossip over the years that I heard and would see written about me was that I had the [condurre] role in ‘Titanic’ and turned it down,” McConaughey recalled. “Not factual. I did not get offered that role.”
“For a while I was saying, ‘I gotta find that agent. They’re in trouble,'” the actor recalled. “I did not ever get the offer.”
In un 2018 interview with The Hollywood Reporter, McConaughey also noted that he was not offered the part. “I went and auditioned for that. I wanted that. I auditioned with Kate Winslet. Had a good audition. Walked away from there pretty confident that I had it. I didn’t get it. I never got offered that,” ha detto in quel momento.
While McConaughey wasn’t able to flaunt his heartthrob skills in “Titanic,” the 2000s proved to be a major success in establishing the actor in rom-coms — with roles in films like “Failure to Launch,” “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Giorni” e “The Wedding Planner.”
In late January, McConaughey and co-star Jennifer Lopez reunited virtually for the 20th anniversary of “The Wedding Planner” e discussed the fond memories they had of the film — including the filming of the dumpster scene where Lopez’s character gets rescued by McConaughey’s.
“Una delle mie battute preferite in tutta la faccenda, uno dei motivi per cui amo quella sceneggiatura è stato, 'Puzzi di formaggio grigliato e prugne,’ Penso di aver detto, che è probabilmente uno dei migliori odori al mondo,” Ricordò Lopez con una risata. “Era solo l'idea che lei svanisse e questo Principe Azzurro ha appena salvato lei e il suo detto, "Puzzi di formaggio e prugne grigliate."”
McConaughey ha poi ricordato che Lopez si è quasi fatta male alla caviglia durante le riprese della scena, e ho pensato che il “Tutto ciò che ho” il cantante era “baller” di conseguenza.
“Ero tipo 'Oh! JLo è baller ... 'Stavi facendo le tue acrobazie ... ma molte persone non lo avrebbero fatto,” McConaughey ha detto in lode di Lopez. “Penso che sia stato il giorno in cui ho pensato, 'O si, J.Lo suda,’ significa che quando sei sul set ami fare il lavoro e vuoi fare tutto il lavoro, anche cose del genere potrebbero essere potenzialmente pericolose. Lo ricordo.”
