Roger Moore: Bond love scenes were unromantic

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'."
