Simon Cowell rejects $2m offer to be the face of Viagra

Simon CowellAmerican Idol judge Simon Cowell has revealed he was once offered a $2m deal to become the face of Viagra - but was horrified by the request and turned it down.

In an interview with Britain's Glamour magazine, the music mogul, 48, said: "Last year my agent rang me and said 'You’ve been offered an incredibly big £1 million [$2m] deal. It's to be the face of Viagra'.

"And I just said 'Sorry, but that has to be a f****** insult'."

Cowell also said that Nicole Kidman has no sex appeal, adding: "The current crop of actresses - Nicole Kidman and Kate Bosworth, etc - they’re just nothing.

"There’s nothing to fancy or fantasize about there. I like old-school glamor - Raquel Welch and Brigette Bardot - voluptuous and naughty. Mistresses."

He added: "I like the girl who’s just copped off with the French President - Carla Bruni.

"That girl has got a very, very sexy face - it’s naughty. And I like Eva Longoria, but then I met her and she wasn’t what I was expecting."

He also revealed that he is put off the idea of marriage to girlfriend Terri Seymour - because women did not have to sign up to strict rules.

He said: "I don’t want to marry anyone, because whoever marries me will end up hating me.

"These divorce laws are thousands of years old. If I sign up a singer it'll be for two to five years and the contract covers everything.

"A marriage can last six months and people can go into it without signing anything."
