George Lazenby has admitted that he’s only ever watched his OWN James Bond movie.

And the 79-year-old doesn’t care who the next 007 is, because he won’t be watching that one either.

The actor, who starred as the slick secret agent in 1969’s On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, chatted exclusively to Mirror Online ahead of his appearance at London Comic Con Spring this weekend.

He said he loves chatting to fans about his career so he can correct them on all the facts they’ve got wrong.

When asked if he was looking forward to meeting with his fans, he told us: “Yes, I’m excited.

“I like to correct them because most people have got wrong information.”

Speculation about who will be the next James Bond has been rife ever since Daniel Craig suggested he’ll step down following the next movie.

After 2015’s Spectre, Daniel said he’d rather “slash my wrists” than play Bond again.

But George admitted that he couldn’t care less who takes on the role next.

The star is the youngest person to ever take on the part, at the age of 30, but isn’t bothered whether or not he retains the title.

“Oh, I don’t care,” he said.

George laughed when we suggested he could go back as a more mature 007, and added: “No, that won’t happen. I wouldn’t go again, I haven’t even seen any of the others.”

When asked to clarify if he’d only ever watched his own Bond movie, he said: “That’s right.”

He added: “You know, it doesn’t bother me [who does it next], as long as they go for the role and carry on.

“There’s a lot of fame attached to it, which is a big job in itself.”

George said he found himself in a few sticky situations thanks to the attention the role brought.

He said: “I had embarrassing moments where I’d go in a store and someone would see me.

“I remember going into a hotel and I walked through a crowd of people, there must have been 1,000 of them and I was in the middle of them when some guy said ‘That’s him’ and pointed at me.

“They wanted to meet the new James Bond and I couldn’t get through and one guy threatened me if I wouldn’t give him an autograph. It’s not always fun.”
