Acting veteran Dennis Hopper bitterly regrets turning down the chance to star in cult Quentin Tarantino film Reservoir Dogs.

The EASY RIDER star, 68, claims his decision to snub the 1992 crime thriller was the biggest mistake of his career.

Hopper says, "It was my big missed chance of the nineties.

"HARVEY KEITEL sent me the script and I was pencilled in for MR WHITE or MR PINK. But I was too committed to another movie at the time.

"Looking back it could have been my last shot at greatness."
