Sir Roger Moore: Sinatra soothes me

Sir Roger Moore

Sir Roger Moore "can listen to [Frank Sinatra] all day."

The 85-year-old thespian and James Bond icon is a huge fan of the late jazz singer.

Roger would be lost without music in general.

"I greatly enjoy chamber music and find it very relaxing and soothing. I'm also a huge fan of Frank Sinatra and could listen to him all day," he told British newspaper The Independent.

"My wife Kristina enjoys anything by Engelbert Humperdinck - I try and hide the CDs, but she always finds them again."

Skyfall, the newest film adaptation on the James Bond character, was released in November.

Roger is a huge fan of actor Daniel Craig's depiction of 007.

"It's one of the best, if not the best, Bond films ever made and Daniel [Craig] has certainly established himself as the best 007," Roger said.

"On the way out of JFK airport a couple of weeks ago a man stopped me and thanked me for Skyfall. I told him I wasn't even in it, but he said, 'Your enthusiasm for it prompted me to go, and boy am I glad I did.' I only wish I'd invested a few quid in it!"

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

A home improvement project will grind to a halt. Someone who is close to your heart may need some peace and quiet. Be prepared to send a repair professional away while your loved one recovers. If you're renting a space, your landlord may tell you to leave with very little notice. Stay calm. It will be easier to find new living arrangements if you remain logical. Spread the word on social media. Be specific about your needs. A friend or acquaintance may hear of somewhere suitable for you.More
