Is Daniel Craig Gay?

Craig’s character’s LGBT connection in Glass Onion “reflects my reality,” he explains. In the sequel to Knives Out, which hit theatres in November and will debut on Netflix later this month, the actor returns to the role of Benoit Blanc.

In a recent interview with The Times, Craig addressed the sexuality discovery, saying, “you are supposed to reflect life.” And my life is reflected in that [gay] relationship. It’s normal,” Craig, 54, continued. However, we don’t intend to make a big production out of it. It seems natural in every way.

Johnson remarked, “To Daniel and me, it was only natural [that Blanc is strange]. We had no intention of playing coy or being sweet. We simply intended for it to be established as a canonical backstory. Formerly, the James Bond actor stated he did not want people to become “politically hung up” on Blanc’s sexuality.

The actor discussed his sexuality on the Lunch with Bruce podcast hosted by chef Bruce Bozzi last year. Craig refuted rumors that he and Bozzi had been spotted making out at a homosexual bar called Roosterfish in Venice Beach, California in 2010.

Craig told Bozzi, “for me, it was one of those instances and the irony is, you know, we kind of got caught, I think, which was kind of weird cause we were doing nothing f***ing wrong.”

What occurred was, he explained, that “we were having a wonderful 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 f***ing go out.‘ And I said to myself, “I don’t give a f***, and we’re in Venice, California.

Craig continued, “for as long as I can remember,” he has frequented gay pubs. One of the reasons is that “I don’t get into fights that much in gay bars” because of “the aggressive d** swinging in hetero bars, I just grew very sick of [it].”

There was no need to “kind of proclaim your sexuality” or worry about coming out at gay clubs, he claimed. And I may meet girls there,” he continued. Because many other women were also there for the same purpose I was. I guess you might call it an “ulterior motivation.”

Starring Edward Norton, Janelle Monáe, Dave Bautista, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr., Jessica Henwick, and Kate Hudson, Glass Onion boasts an impressive ensemble cast. Blanc in the film goes to Greece for a murder mystery party hosted by a notorious tech billionaire.

On December 23rd, you may stream it on Netflix.
