Daniel Craig has revealed the interesting reason why he prefers going to gay bars on a night out.
During a recent chat with Bruce Bozzi on SiriusXM’s Lunch With Bruce podcast, the 53-year-old James Bond star said he’s less likely to find himself in a fight with “aggressive” straight men.
“I’ve been going to gay bars for as long as I can remember,” Craig, who has been married to Rachel Weisz since 2011, said. “One of the reasons [is] because I don’t get into fights in gay bars that often.
“Because the aggressive d–k swinging in hetero bars, I just got very sick of it as a kid because it’s like I don’t want to end up being in a punch-up. And I did. That would happen quite a lot.
“I didn’t want to end up being in a punch-up. And I did, that would happen quite a lot.”
The 007 star went on to say a gay bar is “a good place to go.”
“Everybody was chill … you didn’t really have to state your sexuality, and it was a very safe place to be. And I could meet girls there, ’cause there are a lot of girls there for exactly the same reason I was there. It was kind of an ulterior motive.”
Craig’s comments came after he and Bozzi reflected on a time they went to a gay bar in Venice, California back in 2010. The pair were photographed embracing outside the venue, which caused speculation surrounding Craig’s sexuality.
“We kind of got caught, I suppose, which was kind of weird, ’cause we were doing nothing f—ing wrong,” Craig explained. “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, f–k, let’s just go to a bar, come on, let’s f—ing go out.’
“We got busted for doing nothing wrong. And I just was like, ‘I don’t give a f–k.'”
