Roger Moore will always be remembered for his time as James Bond. And although he quit the role back in 1985 – after more than ten years as the star of the 007 franchise – it appears that Moore largely enjoyed his time on the spy films. But according to the man himself, there was nonetheless a “disgusting” reason why he had to finally throw in the towel.

For many people, though, Moore is fondly remembered as their favorite ever James Bond. He was in fact the third man to play 007 in the much-loved spy movies – after Sean Connery and the Australian actor George Lazenby. Lazenby starred in just one film, however, meaning that Connery was by far the tougher act to follow.
