Rachael Leigh Cook knew rejecting the X-Men was a mistake the moment she saw the posters

Rachael Leigh Cook makes one of those weird, full-circle moments appear as the mother of Addison Rae’s influencer in He is all that, the new gender shifted remake of Cook’s hit film She’s all that, in which she starred alongside Freddie Prinze Jr. back in 1999. While she was a little in doubt about appearing in the teen-comedy remake, as a 41-year-old with a whole host of projects now behind her, she revealed in a recent interview that despite appearing in some much remembered classics from the late 90s and early 2000s, there was a movie she rejected that she quickly realized was a mistake. And that was to take part in Rogue in X men.

In 2001, Rachael Leigh Cook starred in the box office bomb Josie and the Pussycats right after he was offered the role of Rogue in the first X men films which she refused in the belief that she should steer clear of such superhero adventures in order to be a serious actress. She now notes in hindsight that it was a “huge mistake” to have made.

“I think I overheard enough people calling me mature that I even believed in it. But that was actually not true,” Cook said. “In hindsight, was I equipped to navigate the industry? Zero percent,” she said. “I really thought what everyone was telling me was correct when they said, ‘What we need to do now is make sure you are taken seriously,’ I certainly did things for the wrong reasons.”

When the promotional material began to appear too X men, Cook knew right away that she had made one of the biggest mistakes of allowing the Rogue role to be taken by her She’s all that co-star Anna Paquin. While Cook would be left with a long-term “what now” moment to live with, Paquin continued to appear in four X men movie. Cook added, “As soon as I saw the posters for it, I knew I had made a mistake.”

Although the actress could be forgiven for still feeling the sting of the special supervision, she certainly did not lack work in the ten years after the release of X men, but perhaps her career could have taken a completely different turn, with much of her output going directly to video releases with occasional big-screen releases mixed in. He is all that is one of only a handful of films Cook has appeared in over the past decade, where much of her output is on television, including a number of films for Hallmark.

IN He is all that, Cook plays a nurse who is the mother of Padgett Sawyer (Rae), the Instagram influencer who tries to make Tanner Buchanan the gala king instead of being the least popular boy in school. The film was released last week, but as many predicted, it did not hit any of the right notes and achieved a Rotten Tomatoes score of only 30%, with many putting the film mostly to have a lack of chemistry between its leaders . This news comes from The Hollywood Reporter.
