London: Veteran Hollywood actor Clint Eastwood had turned down the chance to play James Bond after Sean Connery quit.

The 80-year-old Oscar winner said it "didn`t feel right" stepping into Connery`s shoes, reports dailystar.co.uk.

He also turned down the Superman role, which went to the late Christopher Reeve, because he thought it was "unrealistic".
