"But behind the scenes he has cheerfully hidden a list of real (and imagined) ailments.You are late,’ says Sir Roger Moore in a deep growl. I apologise. I had thought the interview was at nine o’clock. ‘I am just off to the funeral parlour,’ he continues."
"Of all the things Sir Roger Moore
has lost over the years (appendix, tonsils, adenoids, a sensitive snip in a circumcision and more recently his prostate), his sense of humour is not one of them. ‘If you don’t have humour,’ he says, still laughing, ‘then you may as well nail the coffin lid down now.’"
"Illness, he admits, has permeated every part of his life, although it is hard to distinguish whether the hypochondria that ‘flows through my veins’ started before the string of scrapes and near-death experiences that have punctuated his life.
‘I believe it is better to be prepared for illness than to wait for a cure,’ he declares, ‘and you certainly save on hospital beds that way.’"
"And given the extensive time he has spent with the medical profession, will he be so generous as to leave his body to science?
‘I have no objection,’ he smiles, ‘although everything is so worn out, I’m not sure they’d take me.’"
