James Bond Bisexual: Daniel Craig, Javier Bardem On Alleged Homoerotic 'Skyfall' Scene

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 said that he "loves the scene," also noted, " 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."

It should be noted that the torture scene in 2007's "Casino Royale" -- in which a naked Bond is strapped to a bottomless chair while being whipped in the genitals by the villainous Le Chiffre (Mads Mikkelsen) -- was also noted for its "homoerotic" subtext.

In other Bond news, the blue swimsuit that Craig donned in the now-iconic "Casino Royale" beach scene reportedly sold for a whopping $72,000 at a charity auction in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the popular action franchise.

Why couldn't it be someone like Matt Damon or Michael Fassbender?

Yeah, a hot dude would have been better.

Craig, who said that he "loves the scene," also noted, " I don't see the world in sexual divisions."

The "no sexual division" is how the younger generations are beginning to perceive sexuality. We're entering the post-gay world and things like this will further cement it. Mass media is going to continue to devalue homosexuals and our sexuality until we're just playthings for bored straight men. Farewell, our culture. It was good while it lasted.

Nobody cares about James Bond or Daniel Craig. Nobody.

James bond actors are straight, only straight actors are cast as Bond.

This is clearly some sort of smoke and mirrors campaign. We all know bisexuality doesn't exist.

Box office does.

Sounds hot to me.

R1, if you think Matt Damon (dough boy) is hotter than Craig you are nuts, or a chubby chaser (which is fine.)

Anyone who does not think these two guys are hot, well post your pic. Daniel Craig oozes sex, and so does Bardem, even if he is not Mr Hard Body like Craig.

I also love what Craig had to say. Perhaps that means he has it in him.

And yes, there are bisexuals in the world, lots of them. They are not closeted homosexuals, they are bisexual. Being in the closet and being bisexual or homosexual are separate issues.

Javier Bardem is hot? In what universe?

by Anonymousreply 1010/16/2012

IIRC from the trailer, Bardem doesn't look so hot in this movie.

No, hotter than Javier Bardem. That was the point.

Daniel Craig has a nice bod but I don't find his face attractive at all. I will be nice and say nothing more.

Why am I not surprised by this reaction, given the general taste on this board towards manorexic adolescents?

This would be to good to be true.

Daniel Craig will come out as "bi" after he's done with the James Bond series.

He was pretty gay-sexy in that artist movie.

Great, another gay/crypto gay villain.

Javier Bardem is hot but looks terrible in this role. That hair!

Firstly, there is going to be no "death" of gay culture where straight men use gay men as playthings (WTF?!), because acceptance of sexual fluidity means the "death" of heterosexuality as well.

Secondly, Daniel Craig is no stranger to either the homosex *or* the heterosex.

Thirdly, I rather doubt that Rachel Weisz, rumoured to have had same-sex assignations for quite some time, will have a theoretical problem with Craig's bisexuality.

I believe they are a real couple. They may even be a monogamous real couple. But they are without doubt a couple consisting of two bisexuals, or possibly even a gay man and a lesbian, though this seems less likely.

Not for nothing, I remember reading some blind items from about 5-7 years ago that suggested Bardem was gay/bi. He was always the main guess at least.

Just saw Skyfall at the 10:30 showing in Leicester Square. Superb (and I hate James Bonds) - biggest laugh is when Bardem is trying to seduce Craig and tells him "the first time is always the hardest.." and Craig replies "what leads you to believe it's my first time?"

Tremendous fun, didn't know Sam Mendes had it in him.

Skyfall screenwriter, John Logan, addresses James Bond’s ‘gay past’

The screenwriter of the latest James Bond film, Skyfall, has addressed the suggested homoerotic subtext of certain scenes in the blockbuster.

Speculation over what has been described as an “erotically charged scene” in which actor Javier Bardem’s character Silva apparently caresses the torso of James Bond has sparked heavy excitement among some.

John Logan, who has been tipped as the writer of the next two Bond films, discussed the scene, saying that he talked to director Sam Mendes, who agreed that they should include it:

“Some people claim it’s because I’m, in fact, gay but it’s not true at all,” he said. “Sam [Mendes] and I were discussing, there were so many scenes where Bond goes mano-a-mano with the villain, whether it’s Dr No or Goldfinger or whatever.

“There’s been so many ways to do a cat-and-mouse and intimidate Bond, and we thought, what would truly make the audience uncomfortable is sexual intimidation; playing the sort of homoerotic card that is sort of always there subtextually with characters like Scaramanga in Man with the Golden Gun or Dr No.

“So we just decided that we should play the card and enjoy it.”

James Bond actor Daniel Craig, also addressed the scene between Bond and agent-turned-villain Raoul Silva, played by Javier Bardem, in which the villain unbuttons Bond’s shirt, and makes a sexually-suggestive comment, to which Bond replies: “What makes you think this is my first time?”

In an interview with Movieline, Daniel Craig, 44, who has resumed the role of the world’s most famous spy for the third time, said: “Someone suggested that Silva may be gay. And I’m like, I think he’ll fuck anything.”

Craig, who said that he “loves the scene,” added “I don’t see the world in sexual divisions.”
