Roger Moore Admits He Was A Chicken James Bond - Shaken And Stirred Every Time He Picked Up A Gun!

Former Bond star Roger Moore has admitted he was left shaken and stirred every time he had to shoot a firearm on the set of the superspy movies.

The legend starred as 007 for 12 years, and appeared in such classics as Moonraker, Octopussy and The Spy Who Loved Me.

However, despite guns being part of his job playing James Bond, Moore reveals he struggled to hide his nerves whenever he pulled the trigger.

When asked about the most challenging aspect of playing the secret agent, Moore says: "Probably having to fire a gun and not blink.

"I'm a total coward so often blinked before I pulled the trigger."
