Daniel Craig reveals why he chooses to go to ‘chilled’ gay bars


share close

Daniel Craig has revealed that he goes to gay bars to avoid “aggressive” men, having grown “sick” of getting into fights.

The James Bond actor, who has just released his fifth and final film as 007, No Time To Die, said was tired of the “aggressive d*** swinging in hetero bars”.

“I’ve been going to gay bars for as long as I can remember,” he said. “And one of the reasons – because I don’t get into fights in gay bars that often.

“I just got very sick of [it], as a kid, because it was like I just don’t want to end up being in a punch up. And I did, that would happen quite a lot.”

The 53-year-old told Bruce Bozzi on his SiriusXM podcast, Lunch With Bruce, he felt gay bars “would just be a good place to go”.

“Everybody was chilled,” said Craig, who was honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame last week.

“Everybody, you didn’t really sort of have to state your sexuality, it was okay. And it was a very safe place to be.”

More on Daniel Craig

Craig, who has been married to actress Rachel Weisz since 2011, also admitted there were benefits to being a man interested in women in a gay bar.

He said: “I could meet girls there because a lot of girls were there for exactly the same reason I was there. So I was, there was kind of, you know, there was an ulterior motive.”

Craig and Bozzi reminisced on how they had once unintentionally generated media attention after getting “caught” together at a gay bar in Venice Beach, California, in 2010.

“For me, it was one of those situations and the irony is, you know, we kind of got ‘caught’, I suppose,” he said.

“Which was kind of weird because we were doing nothing wrong.

“What happened is we were having a nice night, and I kind of was talking to you about my life, when my life was changing, and we got drunk, and I was like, ‘Oh, let’s just go to a bar, come on, let’s f****** go out’.

“And it was at the time when I was not doing that, because what happened that night basically, we got busted again for doing nothing wrong.”
