Hollywood superstar CLINT EASTWOOD‘s startling confession!
"Go ahead – make me a martini, shaken and not stirred," CLINT EASTWOOD might have said. But Clint turned down the roles of both JAMES BOND and SUPERMAN.
"Thank God that I didn’t have to do THAT," the 80-year-old iconic director/actor revealed.
"I can remember – and this was many years ago – when (Warner Bros. came to me about doing Superman. So it could have happened. This was when they first started to think about making it. I was like, ‘Superman? Nah, nah, that’s not for me.’
"Not that there’s anything wrong with it. It’s for somebody, but not me.
"I was also offered pretty good money to do James Bond if I would take on the role. This was after Sean Connery left. My lawyer …came and said, ‘They would love to have you.’ But to me, well, that was somebody else’s gig.
"I always liked characters that were more grounded in reality," Eastwood said..
"Maybe they do super things or more-than-human things – like Dirty Harry, he has a knack for doing crazy things, or the western guys – but, still, they’re not caped crusaders."
NEVER say never Clint.
