Daniel Craig has revealed that he enjoys going to gay bars and has “got sick of the aggressive d*** swing” he encounters in “straight bars.”
The 53-year-old movie star was with his friend Bruce Bozzi SiriusXM podcast in which he promotes his latest James Bond film No Time To Die.
During the chat, he said that if he was single, he would often visit gay bars because “there were a lot of girls for exactly the same reason as me.”
‘I don’t get into fights in gay bars very often’: Daniel Craig has revealed he prefers gay bars and has been ‘sick of the aggressive d*** swinging’ he encounters in ‘straight bars’
Daniel, who has been married to fellow film actress Rachel Weisz for ten years, said: “Listen, you know, I’ve been going to gay bars for as long as I can remember and one of the reasons – because I don’t get into fights in gay bars that often.”
He added that “the aggressive bastard swinging in straight bars got me really tired as a kid because it was like ‘I just don’t want to end in one blow’. And I did, that would often happen.’
Gay bars would therefore be ‘just a good place to go. Everyone was chill. Everyone, you didn’t really have to mention your sexuality,” he said.
“It was okay and it was a very safe place to be. And I could meet girls there, because there was a lot of girls there for the very same reason that I was there. So I was, there was kind of, you know, there was an ulterior motive,” he said with a laugh.

The actor also shared that in 2010, he and podcast host Bruce were “caught” together in a gay club in Venice, California.
Daniel explained, “For me it was one of those situations and the irony is, you know, we got ‘caught’, I guess, which was kind of weird because we didn’t do anything damn wrong. ‘
He continued: “What happened is we had a nice evening and I was talking to you a little bit about my life when my life was changing and we were getting drunk and I was like, ‘Oh, let’s just go to a bar “Come on, let’s go outside.”
The star concluded, “And I was like, ‘I know I don’t give a fuck,” and we’re in Venice.”
