Reba McEntire Explains Why She Turned Down 'Titanic' Movie Role

(Radio.com) When Reba McEntire looks back at her extraordinary career in music, film, and television, it is unlikely she has any regrets. Even an action like passing on the role of Molly Brown in mega 1997 blockbuster Titanic can't be seen as a mistake, as she has only been successful in the aftermath.

Still, there is a discrepancy in what was long thought to be the reasoning behind her passing on Titanic and the reality of the situation. In a game of "Wikipedia Fact or Fiction," in which Reba also reveals she never castrated a bull growing up on the farm, the country legend notes, 'I turned it down because they kept moving my schedule, and we had arenas booked."

The film has long been noted for its delays and extended production, and McEntire appears to be a casualty of them continually pushing back her involvement.
