Pierce Brosnan doesn’t think the #MeToo movement will affect the James Bond franchise.

The 65-year-old actor – who played the iconic role in four films – hopes there will be more “respect between the genders” but though 007 has been criticised for being chauvinistic, he doesn’t think the current climate will bring his former alter ego to an end.

Asked if he thinks Bond can survive #MeToo, he said: “Well, I have no idea if the new films are going to address these social issues.

“I think Bond will continue in the same vein. I would suspect so, because men will continue to be men and women likewise.

“One hopes there will be more respect between the genders. You hope that good things will come out of this #MeToo movement.”
