Is the world ready for a bisexual 007? Daniel Craig and Javier Bardem both addressed an alleged homoerotic scene in the upcoming Bond film, Skyfall. Read what they had to say below!
Is Javier Bardem the first “Bond boy”?
Speculation over what has been described as an “erotically-charged scene” in which Bardem’s character Silva apparently caresses the torso of James Bond (Daniel Craig) in the latest installment of the 007 franchise, “Skyfall,” has been rampant in the weeks leading up the movie’s Nov. 9 release.
Now Craig is setting the record straight, albeit somewhat coyly, in a new Movieline interview. Describing the scene as “a great flirt” and “a game of cards,” the actor says, “Someone suggested that Silva may be gay. And I’m like, I think he’ll f*** anything.”
Craig, who says that he “loves the scene,” adds, “I don’t see the world in sexual divisions.”
As for Bardem, the Spanish actor noted that while Silva’s sexuality was “part of the game,” his goal as the character was simply to create “uncomfortable situations” for the other players. “Within that, you can read anything that you want or wish,” he said. “But it was more about putting the other person in a very uncomfortable situation where even James Bond doesn’t know how to get out of it.”
