HOLLYWOOD - Clint Eastwood, the man who made Dirty Harry a household name and was the American who pioneered spaghetti westerns revealed that many years ago he was offered the role of James Bond.
Eastwood said that his hair stylist, his manager, and most of his family members encouraged him to take the role.
And Clint says that he actually thought about it long and hard, but in the end he had to turn the part down.
The man who starred in The Outlaw Josey Wales said that he just could not see himself going from riding a horse to riding a Lamborghini.
He also noted that there was no way that he could see himself sipping on a martini with an olive in it after being used to drinking shots of whiskey in dirty glasses.
Eastwood even said that Sean Connery called him up and told him that playing the role of Bond...James Bond made him a lot of money and he actually got to hold, hug, caress, and boink a lot of the world's most glamorous women.
Clint said he laughed and said that he just kinda got used to riding horses, smoking them little bitty stinking cigars, and cavorting with wild, wicked, sweaty women.
Eastwood said that Connery laughed and called him a dumb, stupid, cowboy sumbitch. Clint laughed and called Connery a dumb, stupid, debonair sumbitch.
