Rock legend David Bowie was once offered the chance to star as a James Bond baddie alongside 007 Pierce Brosnan.

Film bosses wanted the 56-year-old to record a theme song and star in one of the superspy adventures - but Bowie, who made his mark on the big screen in movie LABYRINTH, said no because he hates Bond films.

He explains, "I was asked to do both but to be honest I haven't watched a James Bond film since Sean Connery was in them, I don't really like them."
