Sir Roger Moore: Sinatra soothes me

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!"
