The punk icon has nothing against the actor, but he thinks it would be a terrible idea to get involved in his own movie life story.
He says, "The script ain't chopped liver... It was a work of art. But subjectively, I don't want to be involved in any way.
"A producer and the writer sent me a very decent letter, and asked me to write back if I didn't want them to do it... I don't feel negative about it at all."
Iggy Pop admits that, like many, he was "curious" about the casting of Wood.
He adds, "I don't really know about him... I saw him on TV the other day, and he seems like a very poised and talented actor."
