James Bond star apologises for 'disgusting' on-stage interview

James Bond star apologises for 'disgusting' on-stage interview

James Bond star George Lazenby has apologised for several comments made which have been described as misogynistic and homophobic.

Lazenby was the surprise choice for the new James Bond in the 1960s, appearing in only one movie - On Her Majesty's Secret Service. His tenure is the shortest of any of the actors who have played 007.

He recently appeared on a tour celebrating the music of the franchise, and while on stage he spoke of his sexual conquests among other things.

One audience member told Perth radio station 6PR:

"He was homophobic, he swore, he certainly wasn't talking about his Bond movies. He downplayed the Queen a day after she died.

"It was absolutely unbelievable. At one point he named an Australian cricketer whose daughter he was chasing, and he said he dragged the daughter out of a pub and put her in a car in London, which again is of course horrific.

"It wasn't even charming, it wasn't even funny. It was creepy, it was offensive. He was disgusting, there's no two ways about it."

Another in attendance said that the 007 star spoke of "self-interested misogynistic stories of George Lazenby's sexual prowess, intimate details of diarrhea and objectification of women."

Lazenby apologises

Lazenby has since apologised for his comments at the show, insisting that it was never his intention to offend anyone.

"I am sorry and saddened to hear that my stories in Perth on Saturday might have offended some people," he Tweeted.

"It was never my intention to make hurtful or homophobic comments and I am truly sorry if my stories that I have shared many times were taken that way. I only ever wish to share."
