HONOR BLACKMAN SLAMS LATEST 007 DANIEL CRAIG

Saturday September 11,2010

AFTER George Lazenby declared he doesn’t care if the Bond franchise ends, former Bond girl Honor Blackman has criticised current 007 actor Daniel Craig.

Honor, 85, who played Pussy Galore alongside Sean Connery in Goldfinger in 1964, doesn’t think original Bond author Ian Fleming would be so keen either.

“I don’t think Fleming would approve,” she tells benhealth magazine. “Bond was someone who could bed a lady then kill her, and then have a cocktail and move on.

But they don’t allow that sort of thing now. It isn’t the character that Ian wrote about. It’s not Bond is all I can say.”

They gave up on the traditional Bond and decide to twist the franchise into their own image.

Fanboys: "Kill the infidel!!" Sadly, that's not an exaggeration. There are probably a lot of them that would like Honor Blackman to be stoned to death in a public square. :shock:

Actually, I think you'll find that it is.

OK, OK, it IS an exaggeration. But speaking out against the Bond films(especially when you have a "popular with the masses"-HA! That a good one!- Bond like Craig) is frowned upon and will definitely make you unpopular with Bond fanb..I mean fans.

I thought there were a few more. Doesn't matter, if we could prove without a doubt 3 or4 million really don't like Craig it still wouldn't matter to some or Eon come to think of it.
I get why Moore and Dalton do it, they were heavily criticized and they will without question defend who ever is being attacked. Actors are thin skinned and since they were criticized they well a duty to hold up the line. They do not stop of one moment to consider what or why fan like us were up set they jumped on board a blame wagon and chastised us for not being open or understanding enough, it not like were were blocking Craig's right to build a mosque or anything. We thought he was inappropriate for James Bond, we didn't want him dead just successfully working elsewhere. Which looks like that last part may be happening right now.

No surprise there. I doubt any of the old iconic Bond girls would look at Craig and see James Bond.

The iconic Bond girls' opinions about Craig go over about as well as a fart in church at the fan websites. :P
