This James Bond legend just said something that is making PC liberal heads spin – and we love it.
James Bond legend Sir Roger Moore has again waded into public controversy by insisting that 007 could never be portrayed as a gay man – or be played by a woman – on the simple basis that “wasn’t what Ian Fleming wrote”.
Sir Roger, who played Bond between 1974 and 1985, previously came under fire for his comments regarding the possibility of a black actor such as Idris Elba taking on the role.
He told the London Daily Mail: “I have heard people talk about how there should be a lady Bond or a gay Bond. But they wouldn’t be Bond for the simple reason that wasn’t what Ian Fleming wrote.”
Other Bond actors, including both Daniel Craig and Pierce Brosnan, have backed the idea of a different Bond, Craig saying he“doesn’t give a f**k” if a black or female actor takes on the role.
The 88-year-old star said “political correctness” should not be pandered to, insisting: “It is not about being homophobic or, for that matter, racist – it is simply about being true to the character.”
