Why Hugh Jackman Turned Down The Chance To Be James Bond

Would Hugh Jackman have made a good 007...?

Daniel had previously spoken about his desire to hang up the Bond tux, telling Time Outin 2015, after the release of Spectre that he would rather "slash his wrists" than play the iconic character again.

He added: 'I just felt at the time that the that the scripts has become so unbelievable and insane, and I felt like they needed to become grittier and real'.

Berman said that Lauer was uncomfortable going into a sex shop himself so she gave him items from her own line of adult toys. "There are no words to express my sorrow and regret for the pain I have caused others by words and actions", he continued.

He further added how he did not get any choice at that time as he said, "And the response was: 'Oh, you don't get a say". The Logan star revealed in a recent interview with Variety that producers looked to him when Pierce Brosnan stepped down from the role, but he decided not to take the job because he thought the scripts were too "unbelievable". Becoming James Bond is a pretty big deal considering only seven men have played him on the big screen in the franchise's history - however the allure clearly didn't ring too much with Jackman and he turned down the offer.

"I was also anxious that between Bond and X-Men, I'd never have time to do different things", he said. At times, it seemed like Jackman would be playing the character (and working out relentlessly to do so) until he collapsed, but one of the longest-serving superhero actors of all time finally retracted his claws with Logan.

And while the iconic films have been popular for decades, the 49-year-old actor said he just couldn't get on board with the "crazy scripts" at the time.

"I always tried to do different things".

He will reprise his role for the 25th Bond film possibly for the last time, that goes on floors early next year.

Jackman's newest film, THE GREATEST SHOWMAN, hits theaters on December 20th. "People wanted me to play that kind of hero part exclusively", he said.
