Daniel Craig: James Bond Is Not Gay
Speculation has been popping up about the precise details of James Bond's sexuality since the release of the new 007 installment, Skyfall, directed by Sam Mendes and starring Daniel Craig, Javier Bardem, Ralph Fiennes, Judi Dench, Naomie Harris and Albert Finney, but Craig says it's all just a bunch of hoopla.
The question arose about whether or not Bond might be bisexual after a particular scene in Skyfall, in which villain Silva, played by Bardem, ambiguously strokes Craig-as-Bond's face and body while he is tied up and being interrogated — a brazen action at which Bond remarks, "What makes you think this is my first time?"
Hmm. According to Craig, though, there's nothing to read between the lines. When asked if he could ever imagine a gay bond, he flatly said, "No," reports E! Online. "Because he's not gay," he said. "And I don't think Javier's character is either — I think he'd f–k anything."
Some stars are more open to modifying the famous fictional British spy based on the Ian Fleming character, however. "I think everything is open," said Craig's Skyfall costar Harris. "Everything is open. Who knows?"
Harris feels the same way about a female bond. "I hope so," Harris said about eventually opening up the part to women. "That definitely would not be me, though. Just doing the little bit that I did in Skyfall was strenuous enough. I don't think that I'd be able to do that. But I could definitely see it happening."
