British actor Sir Roger Moore has revealed that his love scenes in the James Bond movies couldn't have been less romantic
Sir Roger Moore's love scenes in the James Bond movies couldn't have been less romantic.
The 88-year-old actor - who starred in seven Bond films between 1973 and 1985 - has revealed that the apparently steamy scenes he appeared in weren't romantic at all.
He recalled: "Those love scenes were usually done when the studios were freezing cold, so you'd say to the leading lady: 'Keep your socks on, darling'. And socks in bed are never romantic.
"Plus, when you're shooting, there's all the crew and electricians on the rails above you going: 'Go on, give her one Roger!'"
Meanwhile, Sir Roger also revealed that his on-screen co-star in 'The Man with the Golden Gun', Hervé Villechaize - who played henchman Nick Nack - was a "sex maniac".
Reflecting on his dealings with the 3ft 11in star, Sir Roger told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "When we were shooting in Bangkok and Hong Kong, he would go to the girly clubs with a flashlight.
"He'd line the girls up and run the torch up across them, each in turn, saying: 'I like you. And you. Not you'."
Sir Roger said that over a two-month period, Hervé boasted that he'd slept with 45 girls.
He added: "I said: 'It doesn't count because you pay for them.' He replied: "Yes it does because sometimes when I pay, they refuse'."
