Daniel Craig has revealed that he prefers going out to gay bars to avoid “the aggressive d***-swinging in hetero bars”.
“I’ve been going to gay bars for as long as I can remember,” the 53-year-old actor said on the Lunch with Bruce podcast on SiriusXM. “One of the reasons: because I don’t get into fights in gay bars that often.”
The No Time to Die actor revealed he started going to gay bars when he was young because he wanted to avoid getting “in a punch-up” during a night out, which would happen “quite a lot” at straight bars.
“As a kid, because it was like… ‘I don’t want to end up in a punch-up.’ And I did. That would happen quite a lot. And it would just be a good place to go,” Craig said.
The star also said gays bars were a safe place to be.
“Everybody was chill, everybody. You didn’t really have to sort of state your sexuality. It was okay. And it was a very safe place to be. And I could meet girls there, cause there are a lot of girls there for exactly the same reason I was there. It was kind of an ulterior motive,” he added.
