SIR Roger Moore has revealed a softer side, he's a huge fan of British poet RUDYARD KIPLING. The former James Bond star revealed his admiration for the acclaimed writer at a literary event at the British Library in London last week (ends5NOV06), where he read 11 of Kipling's poems to an audience. He says, "I have always loved Kipling mainly because I can understand him. "I also admire him because of the way he turned down most of the honours offered to him - even a knighthood. I was very happy to accept mine."
