Daniel Craig has dashed the hopes of
James Bond fans who wish to see a gay version of British Secret
Service agent 007.
Craig returns to play the womanizing
character in Skyfall, the movie franchise's latest offering.
In that film, there is a hint that Bond
could swing both ways. As a tied-up Bond is being interrogated by
the film's villain, Raoul (Javier Bardem), the two men dance around
the scene's homoerotic subtext. Raoul caresses Bond's face, and Bond
teases: “What makes you think this is my first time?”
Online asked Craig if he could ever imagine a “gay James Bond”
at Thursday night's BAFT/LA's Britannia Awards.
“No,” Craig answered. “Because
he's not gay. And I don't think Javier's character is either – I
think he'd fuck anything.”
Naomie Harris, who plays MI6 field
agent Eve Moneypenny in Skyfall, was more open to the idea of
a gay Bond.
“I think everything is open,” she
said. “Everything is open. Who knows?!”
