Licensed to kill and trying to avoid “aggressive d**k swinging,” James Bond star Daniel Craig confirms he would rather attend gay bars than straight clubs.
Craig made the comments during an interview with Bruce Bozzi on the Sirius XM podcast network.
Reflecting on a night out the pair had in Los Angeles a few years ago when they ended up in a popular gay bar, Craig said, “I’d just like to say, it wasn’t my first gay bar, for me it was no big deal.”
“I’ve been going to gay bars for as long as I can remember, and one of the reasons is I don’t get into fights in gay bars that often.”
“We didn’t get into a fight that night because the aggressive d**k swinging in hetero bars, I just got very sick of as a kid because it was like, ‘I don’t want to end up in a punch up,’ and I did and that would happen quite a lot,” He added.
“It was a very safe place to be, and I could meet girls there because a lot of girls were there for the exact same reason I was there, so there was an ulterior motive,” he joked.
While discussing their night further, the pair recall how their attendance in the gay bar ended up sparking speculation about Craig’s sexuality – particularly a tabloid photo of the pair hugging outside the popular gay venue.

“We’re tactile; we love each other. We give each other hugs, it’s OK. We’re two f**king grown men,” Craig said.
Craig also admitted that he did, in fact, get in trouble with his publicist over the night out, and Bozzi said his husband Bryan Lourd wasn’t best pleased either.
“What happened was we were having a nice night, and I was talking to you about my life and my life was changing, and we got drunk, and I was like, ‘Let’s go to a bar, let’s f**king go out,'” Craig said.
“It was at the time when I was not doing that – because of what happened that night – we got busted for doing nothing wrong. And I was just like, ‘I don’t give a f**k.'”
