The 2021 Cannes Film Festival has kicked off with an acclaimed screening of films. These include A Matter of Blood, directed by Tom McCarthy and starring Matt Damon. At the end of its release, the applause was not lacking and neither was the emotion of the protagonist.
After this, the actor did a masterclass to talk about his career, provide reflections and even an unpublished fact: Damon refused to be the protagonist of Avatar and an incredible offer that included 10% of the profits of the film that raised 2,800 million dollars .
“They offered me a movie called Avatar. James Cameron offered me 10%. I will go down in history … you will never meet an actor who has rejected more money ”, were the statements collected by the Deadline medium.
The interpreter rejected the proposal because at that time he was shooting The Bourne Ultimatum. He did not want to leave the action franchise abruptly and decided to be faithful to one of the characters that most marked his career in Hollywood.
The news has surprised fans, but also Matt Damon’s closest friends when they found out. Certainly, the actor will compete for the first place in the list of millionaire offers that were rejected in the film industry.
As for the opportunity to direct a film, he confessed that it never happened due to scheduling problems. The Promised Land and Manchester by the sea were great opportunities, but they never came to fruition for one reason or another.
