James Bond savaged by footie legend ‘I was watching that stuff when I was three’

Michael Owen discusses relationship with David Beckham

Football legend Michael Owen has savaged the James Bond movies in an unlikely rant about the film franchise.

The 43-year-old has hit out at the iconic movies, implying they aren’t realistic with the action portrayed.

Speaking to OK! Magazine, the football pundit explained his disdain for films and referenced James Bond in particular.

He told the publication: “You put something like James Bond on, and he does 10 cartwheels and 20 backflips and ducks down on the top of a train before a bridge hits him and then shoots someone and he dies.

“And it’s like, ‘Oh my god, come on. I was watching programmes like that when I was three’.”

Michael’s dig comes after he spoke out about clashing with his Love Island star daughter Gemma Owen.

He told Express.co.uk: “She’s very similar to me in [her] outlook on life. She’s very motivated and opinionated and strong-willed.

“We often say that opposites attract. Me and my wife are quite opposite, and my wife and Gemma are quite opposite, and they get on like a house on fire, they’re best mates, but then me and Gem can clash on certain things.”

Fortunately, he feels that everyone in the family gets along well, personality clashes aside.

“The kids are now all getting into an age now – they’re all teenagers and with four children, it can be quite a lively house!” he exclaimed.

The former footballer wasn’t entirely pleased about his daughter’s decision to do Love Island at first, telling her not to do the show.

However, taking the plunge paid off as her social media followers soared from tens of thousands to millions when her TV fame exploded.

Once he’d “calmed down” about her participating, Michael was pleased with how she’d come across.

The reality star went on to make it to the final of the series and released her own clothing collection after leaving the show.
