Hol­ly­wood star Ni­co­las Cage (left) says he does not re­gret say­ing no to the role of Aragorn in Lord of the Rings and Neo An­der­son in The Ma­trix. The 51-year-old ac­tor ad­mits that the char­ac­ters would have con­trib­uted a lot in shap­ing up his ca­reer. “There were dif­fer­ent things go­ing on in my life at the time that pre­cluded me from be­ing able to travel and be away from home for three years,” he said, adding, “I don’t have any re­grets. I think re­gret is a waste of time. I try to al­ways move for­ward as op­posed to dwelling on the past or the movies that might have hap­pened,” he said.

Cage has a pos­i­tive point of view over his de­ci­sion to turn down the role and en­joys watch­ing these films. “But the thing is about these movies, I can watch them. I can en­joy them as an au­di­ence mem­ber. I don’t watch my own movies. And so, I gen­uinely do have the joy of watch­ing these — es­pe­cially with Lord of the Rings,” he says.
