‘I don’t get into fights in gay bars that often’: Daniel Craig has revealed he prefers going to gay bars and has grown ‘sick of the aggressive d*** swinging’ he encounters at ‘hetero bars’
Daniel, who has been married to fellow film actress Rachel Weisz for a decade, shared: ‘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 d*** swinging in hetero bars, I just got very sick of as a kid because it was like ”I just don’t wanna end up being in a punch up”. And I did, that would happen quite a lot.’
Gay bars as a result ‘would just be a good place to go. Everybody was chill. Everybody, you didn’t really sort of have to state your sexuality,’ he said.
‘It was okay and it was a very safe place to be. And I could meet girls there ’cause there were a lot of girls who were there for exactly the same reason 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 he and podcast host Bruce had once been ‘caught’ together at a gay club in Venice, California, back in 2010.
Daniel explained: ‘For me, it was one of those situations and the irony is, you know, we kind of got ”caught”, I suppose, which was kind of weird cause we were doing nothing f**king wrong.’
He went on: ‘What happened is we were having a nice night and I kind of was talking to you about my life when my life was changing and we got drunk and I was like, ”Oh, let’s just go to a bar, come on, let’s go out”.’
The star concluded: ‘And I just was like, ”I know I don’t give a f**k,” and we’re in Venice.’
