The 76-year-old actor - who stands at 5' 10" -
auditioned for the title role in the 1978 superhero movie
joked that had he been successful in his bid for the
part that eventually went to Christopher Reeve
he wouldn't have looked good in the costume.
He said: "I auditioned for Superman. I’d have been the world’s shortest superman…
I don’t look good in leotards at all!"
Meanwhile, the Golden Globe-winning star
who has daughters Scarlet, 20, Sistine, 24, and Sophia, 26
wife Jennifer Flavin but was previously been married to Brigitte Nielsen
went on to add that he is hoping to get his own reality show to follow his family life while he is still "relevant."
