This James Bond prefer his Martinis shakes not controlled and his bars gay not directly.
“No Time To Die” Star Daniel Craig said in a podcast posted this week that queer nightlife played a big role in his life and helped him avoid quarrels. (Listen to the interview below.)
“I’ve been to gay bars for as long as I can remember,” the 53-year-old actor told Bruce Bozzi on the podcast “Lunch with Bruce.” “One of the reasons (is) because I do not fight so often in gay bars. “And I did. That would happen quite a lot.”
A gay bar “would just be a good place to go,” Craig continued. “Everyone was cold. You did not really have to say your sexuality. It was OK. And it was a very safe place to be. And I could meet girls there because there are a lot of girls there for exactly the same reason I was there. “It was an oil motive.”
Bozzi and Craig, who promote their fifth and final go-round as the British superspy in “No Time To Die”, recall excitement when they went to a gay bar together in Venice Beach, California, in 2010.
Bozzi remembered taking a snap when a man asked him if he was Craig’s manager and Bozzi yelled at him.
“We were somehow caught, I guess, that was weird because we did nothing wrong,” said Craig, who married actress Rachel Weisz in 2011. “What happened was that we had a great night and I talked to you about my life when my life changed and we were drunk and I said, ‘Oh, fuck, let’s just go to a bar , Come on, let’s fuck us out. ‘We tried to do nothing wrong. And I was just like,’ I’m not fucking. ‘ “
