Sir Roger Moore says late pal-actor David Nivens wife was a bitch to himJanuary 15th, 2009 - 12:39 pm ICT by ANI
London, January 15 (ANI): Sir Roger Moore has revealed in his autobiography that the wife of his late buddy-actor David Niven had been a bitch to him.
The former James Bond actor claimed in his memoir My Word Is My Bond that Swedish-born ex-model Hjordis marriage to Niven had been nothing less than hell for his friend.
She and David didnt get on in later life. In fact, she was a bitch to him. I say that with all the conviction it deserves, as David was a dear, dear friend of mine who did nothing but try to please her, the Daily Express quoted him as saying.
In return, Hjordis showed him nothing but disdain, he added.
Sir Moore further said Nivens second wife had even arrived drunk at his house before her husbands funeral in 1983.
He said: In order to spare her the ordeal of having to face the TV cameras I suggested that the car take Hjordis around to the back of the house. She, meanwhile, decided to enter by the front door.
He added: The car door opened, and, with her wig slipping and an empty bottle of vodka rolling round her feet, Hjordis looked up at me and slurred, Here for the press, are you? (ANI)
