Sir Roger Moore, the man and legend who brought James Bond to life in seven Bond films including Live and Let Die, A View To Kill and Octopussy died at the age of 89.
The actor and humanitarian whose tireless work with UNICEF were considered his “greatest achievement” was also known for possessing a sharp sense of humour.
To celebrate his life, loaded has compiled some of his funniest and wittiest retorts throughout his time on earth.
Rest well, Mr. Bond.
“I’m the worst Bond, according to the internet. Generally hated!”
“I’m a little devil.”
“You can either grow old gracefully or begrudgingly. I chose both.”
“I never liked guns, I hate them, I always blink before they go off.”
“I speak relatively little, except when I’m at home and I’m asking for things.”
“I enjoy being a highly overpaid actor.”
“My acting range has always been something between the two extremes of ‘raises left eyebrow’ and ‘raises right eyebrow.'”
“I’ve learnt that through life you just get on with it. You’re going to meet a lot of dishonest people along the line and you say good luck to them. I hope they live in comfort. Then I start sticking more pins in their effigies.”
“Of course I do my own stunts. And I also do my own lying.”
