I've had more women than James Bond, says Sir Roger Moore
Sir Roger Moore, who is best known for portraying the character of James Bond from in the official film series between 1973-1985, has revealed that he 'mesmerised' the ladies, bedding even more than the debonair spy himself.
Indeed, the 84-year-old actor confessed that he had lost count of the exact number of women he had slept with. “I’ve always been a hit with the ladies,” the Daily Mail quoted him as saying.
“Over the years I’ve had my fair share of beautiful women. “I couldn’t possibly say how many I’ve been out with because I’m a gentleman. “But more importantly I just haven’t kept count. I’ve had more women than James Bond. It was always, 'Moore...Roger More',” he said.
Moore, who has been married four times, starred In seven Bond films including ‘The Man With The Golden Gun’ and ‘The Spy Who Loved Me’. In the 22 Bond films to date, the spy has had 51 lovers.
According to Moore, many of his own conquests confused him with Bond or Simon Templar, his character in 1960s TV series ‘The Saint’. “I think a lot of the women who threw themselves at me thought they were with James Bond or Simon Templar rather than Roger Moore because I was the same on screen as off screen,” he said.
“I don’t really change. I’m just me. I used to just play myself and I think they were mesmerised by that. The voice and mannerisms are me but not much else.
“Being a famous film star does funny things to people. People are always very nice but they behave differently around you. “I was too good looking to be a baddie. I had to be a hero because I looked like one. But I’m actually a coward and nothing like Bond,” he added.
