Bond Girl Jane Seymour Reveals Gross Thing She and Roger Moore Did Before Their Love Scenes in ‘Live and Let Die’

Over the years Jane Seymour has played some memorable roles including her seductive part in the blockbuster Wedding Crashers. But early in her career, the British actor found it uncomfortable filming sexy scenes. So when she cast as the Bond girl Solitaire in the 1973 film Live and Let Die, her co-star Roger Moore tried to help her get more comfortable by suggesting they do something unappealing together prior to filming their bedroom scene.

Seymour and Moore had to use body doubles in a scene when they were laughing too much

Seymour previously spoke to The Telegraph about what is was like working with Moore, who played the iconic role of James Bond in the movie. She said that he was always making her laugh so much so that they had to use body doubles in one scene because they were cracking up and couldn’t get through it.

“In one of the film’s final scenes, which takes place on a train, I had a truly terrible piece of dialogue and couldn’t get it out without laughing. Roger and I were both weeping, giggling like schoolchildren,” Seymour explained (per the Mirror). “The crew banished me from the set and we had to use body doubles to get it done.”

When it came to filiming their love scene, Moore had a rather gross idea of something they could do to make things less awkward.

“On the day of our bedroom scene, Roger and I were having lunch together when he suggested we should eat liver and onions,” Seymour revealed. “I thought he was joking until he ordered it to make sure it would be as unappealing as possible. I honestly didn’t know what to make of that but, as usual, he’d made me laugh.”

She added that the particular scene was still a bit “nerve-racking, embarrassing, and not at all sexy” but at least Moore wasn’t a bad kisser. “Although we didn’t have any terribly steamy scenes he was a very good, polite kisser,” Seymour admitted.

Moore died on May 23, 2017, after a short battle with cancer. He was 89 years old. His children announced his death on social media at the time writing: “With the heaviest of hearts, we must share the awful news that our father, Sir Roger Moore, passed away today. We are all devastated.”

During an appearance on the talk show Loose Women, Seymour told the show hosts that she spoke to Moore at an event a few months prior to his death. She said they had a conversation for “40 minutes or so” and talked about “everything.”
