Will James Bond ever be gay? Following the stupendous success of Skyfall, Daniel Craig has made it clear that James Bond is and will always be straight. Speculation of James Bond being homosexual fired up thanks to the chemistry between him and Javier Bardem’s character Raoul Silva in one of the scenes in the film.
The scene in question sees a playful Raoul pat Bond’s legs and chest as the spy sits tied up in a chair, with 007 ending the scene by asking his enemy: ‘What makes you think this is my first time?’
While Daniel Craig has said that James Bond will never be gay, his co-star Naomie Harris who plays the Bond girl in the new movie is open to the idea of James Bond having homosexual inclinations. She said,: ‘I think everything is open. Everything is open. Who knows?!’
The chirpie Naomie went to the extent of suggesting that Bond could be played by a woman in future and it need not necessarily be her. She said, ‘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.”
