Wellington: Speculation over Bond’s sexuality is rife after the revelation of what’s being called an “erotically-charged” scene in the latest 007 flick, ‘Skyfall.’
In the scene, Javier Bardem’s villainous character, Silva, reportedly caresses the bound chest of 007 Daniel Craig.
In response to Silva’s attentions, 007 is seen replying, “What makes you think this is my first time?”
And since Craig has made no secret that he would be open to Bond being bisexual in interviews while promoting ‘Quantum Of Solace,’ speculations are running rampant if ‘Skyfall’ is the movie that finally sees Bond extending his attention to the not-so-fair gender.
“I don’t see the world in sexual divisions,” Stuff.co.nz quoted him as telling Movieline.
Instead he described the scene as a “a great flirt” and “a game of cards.”
“Someone suggested that Silva may be gay. And I’m like, I think he’ll f*** anything,” he said.
In the same interview Bardem, noted that while Silva’s sexuality was “part of the game,” his goal as the character was simply to create “uncomfortable situations.”
“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,” he said.
