Hollywood star Sir Roger Moore has revealed he is a fan of the phrase ''Bond crumpet''.
Sir Roger Moore is a fan of the phrase ''Bond crumpet''.
The 87-year-old actor - who starred as British secret agent James Bond in seven films between 1973 and 1985 - has revealed he'd like to rename Bond girls, even though he risks incurring the wrath of social media users.
He said: ''Bond female doesn't have the same ring to it, does it? Bond lady, perhaps? Or what about ... Bond crumpet?!
''Oh, Bond crumpet will get an angry brigade going on Twitter!''
He told the Daily Mail newspaper: ''When I was brought up, we were always boys and girls, and men and women. You would stand up for a lady when she came into a room - but you get called a sexist pig if you show manners like that now.
''The problem is that leading ladies get called all kinds of things today. But a Bond girl was always a Bond girl. The rest - the Bond female, Bond lady - doesn't sound right. But I do like Bond crumpet!''
The actor says he isn't "holding out for more money or doing anything like that".
The drama will be making its return to the streaming service in the near future.
