Pierce Brosnan blasts Bond
09:30 04 November 2005
Pierce Brosnan has launched a scathing attack on fellow James Bond star George Lazenby.
The handsome actor, who played 007 in four movies, has hit back at his predecessor - who played the suave spy in 1969's 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service' - for claiming he had no charisma.
Pierce told Playboy magazine: "George is just an angry, old, p***ed-off guy. He was never an actor, but some p***ed-off Aussie who doesn't know how to show his feminine side. I met him, and he's got that kind of brittle edge to him."
This is not the first time Pierce - who was recently replaced as 007 by 'Layer Cake' star Daniel Craig - has lashed out at the Bond franchise.
Earlier this year, he branded Bond sex scenes "pathetic" - and urged producers to make them more explicit.
Pierce, who has enjoyed on-screen romps with Teri Hatcher, Denise Richards and Halle Berry, moaned: "You're not even allowed to show a bloody nipple. It's pathetic.
"What Bond needs is a good, palpable killing sequence and a good sex scene - and it doesn't have to be graphic, you can use your imagination."
