Jackie Chan revealed to Michelle Yeoh that he received the main part in Everything Everywhere All At Once initially.

Jackie Chan texted Michelle Yeoh after she learned she had been nominated for an Oscar for Everything Everywhere All At Once, according to Michelle Yeoh.

Chan revealed to her that the main part, which was initially intended to be filled by a male, had really been given to him first.

Yeoh plays Evelyn Quan, a laundromat owner who learns how to travel between an endless number of parallel universes, in the movie.

For her part in the movie, Yeoh was nominated for Best Actress in the upcoming 2023 Academy Awards, and Everything Everywhere All At Once is currently expected to win Best Picture.

She remembered the part to CNN, saying: “It was written for a male, so [directors Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, also known as the Daniels] went out to shoot the scene.

“They described Jackie as the husband and myself as the wife. The roles were therefore entirely switched around. Congratulations! Jackie texted me, I recall her saying. You are aware that your lads visited me first.

She said, “I’m like, ‘Thank you buddy, you did me a great favor.

Yeoh continued by claiming Chan’s choice to decline the role in the movie was “mutually” made. Chan said that the Daniels had “stepped back” and opted to make the movie center on a female lead in addition to her “extremely hectic” work schedule.
