London: `Avatar` star Sam Worthington, who was one of the three actors shortlisted to play iconic spy James Bond, says he wouldn`t want to see a Bond film with him starring in it.

Worthington, who lost the role to Daniel Craig, also says he wasn`t keen on the role because George Lazenby, the last Australian star to take on the role, was sacked after just one film, reports contactmusic.com.

"Do you know what? I wouldn`t want to see a James Bond movie with me in it anyway`. The last time there was an Australian as James Bond it was George Lazenby and he f***ed it up. I don`t want to be the new George Lazenby. But, you know, I learned a lot from that, which I took to the `Avatar` auditions," said Worthington.

Though the 35-year-old has won high profile roles as Jake Sully in "Avatar" and Perseus in "Clash of the Titans", he gets upset when criticised for being over-exposed.

"For many years I didn`t work. I was unemployed. It`s weird now that I get criticised for working. You can`t f***ing win, can you? In my mind, if you don`t want to see my movies, dont` go and see them.

"I just try and do as many jobs as I can, build up the calibre of my work and make the director and the audience happy," he added.
