Daniel Craig may play a macho man as James Bond in the “007” series, but he has said he goes out of his way to avoid aggressive men off-screen.
Daniel Craig says he goes to gay bars to avoid aggressive men in straight clubs
The actor told SiriusXM’s Bruce Bozzi that he has been going to gay bars for years to avoid “aggressive dick bashing in straight bars,” according to the New York Daily News.
“I’ve been going to gay bars for as long as I can remember,” Craig said on SiriusXM’s “Lunch with Bruce” podcast. “One of the reasons, because I don’t get into fights in gay bars that often.”
The British actor said he started going to gay bars in his youth because he didn’t want to get beat up on a night out, something that happened “quite a bit” in straight bars.
Craig explained that people didn’t mind his presence in gay bars, despite being a straight man. He said that no one asked him about his sexuality when he was in gay bars, which made them a “very safe place.”
Because many straight women go to bars that cater to gay men, Craig said he could even pick up women on nights out.
“I could meet girls there, because there are a lot of girls there for exactly the same reason I was there,” Craig said.
