007 MOORE TERROR

Suave 007 Sir Roger Moore was terrified playing the super-spy.

In his new tell-all, Moore, 80,  who starred in seven Bond flicks during the 70s and 80s recalled his  near death experience in his first attempt at Bond.

"Bond had a big jet boat chase in Live and Let Die,'"  Moore wrote in My Word is Bond.

"I did quite a few run-throughs to practice and whilst banking on one such run, the engine cut out. I had no steering! I therefore continued in a straight line  -- directly into a wooden boat house!"

He was violently launched from the speed boat into a wall, cracking both front teeth and wrenching his knee.

"There I was, as a fearless 007, hobbling on a cane to my boat and then pretending to be indestructible for the cameras.

"Who says I can't act?"
