Roger Moore - Sir Roger Moore Beaten Up By Former Wives

Sir Roger Moore claims his former wives used to beat him.

The James Bond actor has been married four times but says Doorn van Steyn and Dorothy Squires were both physically abusive during his unions to them and he detailed assaults which included being hit with a teapot and over the head with a guitar.

Speaking on Piers Morgan's ITV show 'Life Stories', he said: ''[Doorn] would scratch me. She threw a pot of tea at me. I'd been sunbathing in the garden, I came up and I'd taken off my pants and I gave her some smart Alec answer and this teapot came hurtling at me. I said, 'Right, that's it, I'm leaving'.

''She storms off out of the room and I hear the bath running. I thought, 'What a cow, I'm leaving her and she's having a bath'.

''So I smashed the bathroom door open and she had all my clothes in the bath and said, 'Now leave me'. I waited for them to dry. The marriage was doomed.''

Speaking about his second wife Dorothy, he added: ''There was a confrontation. I remember, to avoid confrontation, I used to strum the guitar and one day I was sitting on The Edge of the table strumming and she was ranting on about something and I wasn't taking any notice.

''Next thing I know, it was like slow motion, I could feel the guitar coming out of my hands and I could see it up above my head and... bash, it came down. She ruined the guitar. She had a great temper.''

After marrying third wife Luisa Mattioli, the 84-year-old actor is now happily wed to socialite Kristina Tholstrup, 71.

He said: ''It's a tranquil relationship, there are no arguments.''

The full interview airs on ITV1, Friday (14.09.12) at 9pm.
