Los Angeles: Oscar-winning actor Javier Bardem said he turned down Colin Farrell’s role in “Minority Report” when it was offered to him.
The 2002 sci-fi film was directed by Steven Spielberg and starred Tom Cruise, Samantha Morton along with Farrell.
Though Bardem revealed he was a big fan of Spielberg, he said he wasn’t prepared to board the film at the time, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
“When I met him (Spielberg), I was really star-struck,” Bardem recalled when delivering a master class at the Toronto international film festival.
He added, “But at the time, it was difficult for me to jump into a foreign language performance. My English is better now. You may not believe it, but it’s better.”
The 48-year-old star is in Toronto to promote “Mother!”, the Darren Aronofsky psychological thriller, where he co-stars with Jennifer Lawrence.
The festival runs through to September 17. (PTI)
