The 46-year-old actor, also revealed that he was kind of approached to play 007 before Daniel Craig took it up, reported Digital Spy.
"I'd seriously consider it. Just before Daniel (Craig) took over... At the time I was just about to do "X-Men 2" and I was like 'I don't think it's the right time' - but it was not an easy one for me to give up," he said.
He also said that Craig was a friend and praised his performance as Bond.
