I can’t see Matthew McConaughey as Jack Dawson in Titanic, can you? Sure, it’s not fair to say that now, because who knows if he had been Jack instead of Leonardo DiCaprio, but I just don’t see it.
There has been a rumor going around that McConaughey turned down the role, but he has squashed it.
“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 [lead] role in ‘Titanic’ and turned it down,” McConaughey recalled. “Not factual. I did not get offered that role.”Matthew McConaughey clarifies ‘Titanic’ audition rumors: ‘I did not get offered the role’ | Fox News
He did want the role, which I found interesting, but it wasn’t meant to be.
