James Bond has been the consummate ladies’ man. But could the fictional secret agent also have a little romantic experience with men?

According to Movieline, there’s a scene in the upcoming Bond film, “Skyfall,” where Bond (Daniel Craig) and film villain Silva (Javier Bardem) do a little flirting. Bond is tied up, and the villain gives Craig’s sexy secret agent chest a caress.
Reports Movieline, “In response to Silva’s attentions, 007 replies, ‘What makes you think this is my first time?'”
Writer Frank DiGiacomo reports that reporters asked about the scene at a press conference, and Craig praised the encounter, calling the back-and-forth “a game of cards,” and notes that “I don’t see the world in sexual divisions.”
DiGiacomo’s takeaway? “Bond isn’t bi,” he writes.
A commenter on the Huffington Post story about the scene wrote, “I’ve never seen Bond as having those undertones, but I could easily see him opportunistically playing to the prejudices of anyone. If he were bi, it wouldn’t bother me. It wouldn’t surprise me either. Bond honestly strikes me as the kind of guy into things that would make simply being bi seem quaint.”
And another Huffington Post reader had another take, writing “C’mon, every guy is a little gay for James Bond.”
“Skyfall” opens in the U.S. on Nov. 9.
