Jackson Missed Out On The Matrix Role

JANET JACKSON is desperate to "kick butt" in a hard-hitting action movie - after missing out on the chance to star in hit film THE MATRIX due to schedule conflicts.
The pop superstar was lined up by filmmaking siblings Larry and Andy Wachowski to appear in the original Matrix movie in 1999 alongside Keanu Reeves.
Jackson couldn't find the time in her hectic schedule to join the blockbuster - but she's still hoping to get tough on film.
She tells Wonderland magazine, "There was a time when I met with the Wachowski brothers to do The Matrix, a long time ago but there were conflicts.
"I want to kick somebody's a**. Anybody's. As long as I get to kick somebody's a**. Kick a new hole in their butt. Rip 'em a new butthole. I'd love to do that."
The singer has starred in a string of films, including Poetic Justice, wacky comedy Nutty Professor II: The Klumps and Why Did I Get Married?
