Liam Neeson has revealed that he turned down the offer to play James Bond because his late wife Natasha Richardson wanted to get married.

The 'Schindler's List' star confessed that his wife, who had died tragically after a tragic ski accident in 2009, had given him a choice of either taking the role of the spy or marrying her, the Hufington Post reported.

Neeson added that he had to choose tying the knot, as he did want to marry Richardson.
